New Agreement to Support Development of Advanced Features of PURE EP™ System
Westport, CT, Sept. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioSig Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSGM), a medical technology company developing a proprietary biomedical signal processing platform designed to address an unmet technology need for the electrophysiology (EP) marketplace, today announced that it signed a new licensing agreement with Mayo Clinic.
The new agreement aims to develop a new product pipeline to support some of the more advanced features of BioSig’s first product, PURE EP™ System. The development program will be run under the leadership of Samuel J. Asirvatham, M.D., Mayo Clinic’s Vice-Chair of Innovation and Medical Director, Electrophysiology Laboratory.
“We are very pleased to expand our relationship with the outstanding physician team at Mayo Clinic. Their commitment to improving patient care resonates deeply with our Company’s mission to bring innovative technological solutions to medicine, and we are looking forward to this next chapter in our collaboration. The new product that we intend to develop under the latest licensing will seek to significantly advance the current arrhythmia treatments. It will be an exciting journey, and we look forward to reporting on our progress,” commented Kenneth L. Londoner, Chairman and CEO of BioSig Technologies, Inc.
BioSig was recently added to the Russell 3000 Index and allowed 33 patent claims covering its PURE EP™ System.

The Company signed a 10-year collaboration agreement with Mayo Clinic in March 2017.
About BioSig Technologies
BioSig Technologies is a medical technology company developing a proprietary biomedical signal processing platform designed to improve the electrophysiology (EP) marketplace (www.biosig.com). Led by a proven management team and a veteran Board of Directors, BioSig Technologies is preparing to commercialize its PURE EP™ System. The technology has been developed to address an unmet need in a large and growing market.
The Company’s first product, PURE EP™ System is a computerized system intended for acquiring, digitizing, amplifying, filtering, measuring and calculating, displaying, recording and storing of electrocardiographic and intracardiac signals for patients undergoing electrophysiology (EP) procedures in an EP laboratory. The system is indicated for use under the supervision of licensed healthcare practitioners who are responsible for interpreting the data. This novel cardiac signal acquisition and display system is engineered to assist electrophysiologists in clinical decision-making during electrophysiology procedures in patients with abnormal heart rates and rhythms. BioSig’s ultimate goal is to deliver technology to improve upon catheter ablation treatments for the prevalent and potentially deadly arrhythmias, Atrial Fibrillation and Ventricular Tachycardia. BioSig has partnered with Minnetronix on technology development and received FDA 510(k) clearance for the PURE EP™ System in August 2018.
