AQUA™ will be available for sale in the USA and Canada on May 18, 2015. AQUA™ is a powerful quality management tool that integrates, collates and interprets machine QC processes across the entire radiation therapy department. It is the first and only vendor-neutral machine QC software that integrates Elekta linacs and third-party QC devices into one platform.
Acumyn has made it through its first year of business – a feat that could not have been reached without the dedicated work of our employees, funders, and strategic partners! It has been an exciting year, with plenty of promising developments on the product and business side of things, including:
- Signing of an important global distribution partnership with Elekta Ltd.
- Very successful pre-release demo at ASTRO 2015 in Austin, TX
- Attracted a number of pilot customers across North America
- Flawless pilot launch to our pilot customers in early 2015 that attracted significant attention
- Received FDA and Health Canada regulatory clearances
We are now working hard and looking ahead to a successful full release of the product at ESTRO 2015 in Barcelona, April 24th!
Thanks to everyone who contributed their time, skills, and resources to get Acumyn to where it is today. We hope to have many birthdays to come!
Acumyn’s AQUA platform has the power to improve the efficiency and workflows in radiation therapy departments—including providing automated daily quality assurance (QA) for radiation therapy clinics and hospitals. AQUA can directly interface with automated quality control software and hardware to minimize the burden of QA activities, and Standard Imaging has become one of the first radiation calibration instrument manufacturers to integrate their technology—the QA BeamChecker Plus—with the AQUA platform to realize these benefits.
“We are pleased to welcome Standard Imaging to the AQUA ecosystem as an early OEM partner sharing our vision to deliver an automated QA platform to oncology clinics worldwide,” says Ferhan Bulca, CEO of Acumyn.
“We believe a unified and integrated approach to QA data sharing has the potential to improve efficiency and usefulness in patient care. Products like AQUA and Standard Imaging’s new QA Pilot software are efficient data management solutions for the future of radiation therapy’s knowledge based QA platforms,” says Edward Neumueller, CEO of Standard Imaging, Inc.
Under an exclusive global agreement AQUA is sold and marketed by Elekta who will be demonstrating this vendor-neutral system on their booth at the 3rd ESTRO Forum in Barcelona, Spain in April 2015. Demonstrations will highlight AQUA’s integration with Elekta Linacs, the QA BeamChecker Plus as well as other QA devices and radiation therapy hardware.
Acumyn is the Ontario-based company behind the development of AQUA, an end-to-end system for managing department-level quality assurance workflows and scheduling in radiation therapy that provides a software link between the disparate systems in a department. Standard Imaging is a US-based leading provider of radiation calibration instruments used in radiation therapy and other medical fields.
