FDA clears Xact Robotics remote control unit

[Image from Xact Robotics]Xact Robotics announced today that it received FDA clearance for its ACE Xtend remote control unit for its Xact ACE robotic system.

The remote control unit allows users to robotically insert and steer the Xact ACE robotic system. They can do so remotely from the control room.

Hingham, Massachusetts-based Xact Robotics designed the first-of-its-kind feature for CT-guided percutaneous procedures. The aim is to improve workflows while limiting exposure to radiation and reducing physical strain.

“The XACT ACE Robotic System has already allowed users to make percutaneous procedures, such as ablations, drainages and biopsies, more accurate, consistent and efficient,” said Shai Meltzer, CEO of Xact Robotics. “The addition of ACE Xtend has the potential to further increase efficiencies for the care team with a streamlined workflow that helps reduce the time in which physicians and other users are exposed to harmful radiation during standar…

New FDA clearance expands indications for Xact Robotics’ ablation system

Xact Robotics announced today that it received FDA clearance for a modification to its Xact Ace robotic system for ablation procedures.

Hingham, Massachusetts-based Xact Robotics’ FDA clearance allows for a modification to the already-cleared Xact Ace system, expanding the indication for CT-guided percutaneous procedures for the system designed to support robotic insertion and steering of ablation probes during ablation clinical procedures.

According to a news release, the Xact Ace robotic system has already been used in over 200 clinical cases to date across multiple medical centers.

The company said its Xact Ace system represents the first and only technology to combine image-based procedure planning and real-time monitoring with hands-free precise robotic insertion and non-linear steering. It creates the potential to save time with fast and accurate probe placement.

Xact Ace has achieved a 1.7 mm tip-to-target average accuracy upon first …
