Faxitron and Devicor Medical Products Announce New Distribution Agreement

Devicor® Medical Products, Inc. (Devicor), a portfolio company of GTCR, a leading private equity firm, and Faxitron® Bioptics, LLC are pleased to announce a new distribution agreement for Faxitron’s CoreVision® in the United States and abroad. CoreVision® verifies the presence of micro-calcifications in core biopsies, rapidly confirming a successful biopsy procedure directly in the stereotactic biopsy suite.

Faxitron’s CoreVision® is sold to breast radiologists, breast surgeons and clinicians around the world. The use of purpose-built, point-of-care specimen radiography like Faxitron’s CoreVision®, is to minimize patient discomfort through shorter procedure times that also allow for workflow efficiencies and more room turns.

“Our strategy is focused on providing best-in-class technology that increases the accuracy of breast cancer detection while facilitating more efficient clinical practice,” said Devicor CEO Tom Daulton. “Faxitron’s CoreVision® is perfectly aligned with our mission, and is highly complementary with our current products, including Mammotome revolve® and the Mammotome MammoTestTM stereotactic biopsy table.”

The agreement includes the newly co-branded Mammotome CoreVision® within the United States, with impending distribution in other countries in Europe and Asia.

“This joint venture is one of the most exciting events in our company’s history,” said Faxitron CEO Paul Murtagh. “Together, our combined market presence will help us reach more hospitals and breast centers and provide the equipment needed to redefine procedural efficiency.”

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
