Acumyn Inc. is proud to announce that the company is now certified to ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems and ISO 13485:2003 Medical Devices Quality Management System in design and development of software to assist the safety and performance verification of safety-critical devices. The certification is provided by BSI (British Standards Institution).
“Acumyn is committed to performing to the highest levels of quality in its operations to fulfill its promise to customers. These certifications constitute an important milestone as we continue to build a world-class company,” commented Dr. Ferhan Bulca, CEO of Acumyn.
Certifications to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485-2003 require a thorough review of the company’s internal quality management system processes and practices by an accredited third-party organization. The review ensures that the candidate company is capable of consistently and reliably delivering products and services that meet customer’s needs and expectations.
Acumyn develops and sells device quality control and management software platforms for radiotherapy and radiology sectors. Although recently certified, Acumyn has been operating to exacting quality standards in order to meet its customers’ needs in highly regulated fields.
Acumyn will release AQUA™ v1.1 at ASTRO 2015 in San Antonio, TX, on October 18, 2015. The new release, developed in collaboration with Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, University Health Network and Techna, delivers integration with Elekta linear accelerators, expanded image tests, and a mobile-friendly real-time dashboard among many other new and improved features.

When you lead in a field, you are always ‘pushing the envelope’ and looking for better ways to do everything.
At Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, one of the many areas where we are pushing and re-inventing is in the use of radiation to eradicate cancer. Up to sixteen linear accelerators (valued at approximately $3 million each) are online each day along with a variety of imaging equipment. All of this equipment must be working optimally to deliver radiation safely to over 400 patients a day, with the precision needed to be effective while minimizing toxic side effects.
Dr. Daniel Létourneau is associate head of physics at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and responsible for external beam equipment quality control at this large facility. With so many different pieces of radiation and imaging equipment to monitor and maintain, he knew there was a need for a single interface for the entry, management, analysis and archiving of all test data, and a platform that would centralize all of the quality control activities for radiation therapy.
