BiopSafe Container is Now Available in 60 ml


In addition to the 20ml container the BiopSafe buffered formalin solution is now available in a 60ml container. The new 60ml container is useful for storage of larger tissue in a safe way and can contain up to four standard cassettes. Together with the 20ml container, it will provide a complete formalin fixation solution that is safe and easy to work with. The 60ml container comes in transportation boxes of 72 pieces.

The BiopSafe system consists of a small, easy to use container (vial) with a 4 % formaldehyde solution capsuled in the lid. You screw the lid on and apply pressure with your thumb, allowing the formalin to flow out and cover the biopsy. Everything is done inside the container and no formalin is released in either liquid or vapor form.

Mermaid Medical is the exclusive distributor in Sweden, Norway and Finland. Please contact your local representative for more information.

Exclusive Distribution of ProbeFix in Spain and Portugal


We are proud to announce that by January 19th, 2018 Mermaid Medical can add Spain and Portugal to the current list of countries (Netherlands, Great Britain, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland) where Mermaid exclusively distributes ProbeFix. The fixation device for cardiac ultrasound transducers is developed by the Dutch company Usono that develops smart ultrasound solutions to ease, improve and innovate the use of ultrasound. Since its release last year, ProbeFix has received lots of international attention and positive user feedback. The stable and adjustable fixation allows for hands-free ultrasound measurements during lengthy cardiac exams and other time-consuming procedures like stress echo or cardiac output monitoring. This innovative fixation system confirms improved workflow of cardiologists which enhances the examination quality and consequently a more reliable diagnosis for the patient.

ProbeFix will be distributed in Spain and Portugal via Mermaid Medical’s local dealer network.

Introducing Cassi® Star Breast Tissue Marker


The Cassi Star Breast Tissue Marker has been developed for enhanced ultrasound visibility. Its star shape, with eight deep cut edges, secures bright reflection of ultrasound waves and is easily distinguished from other breast tissue markers under mammographic imaging.

The Cassi Star Breast Tissue Marker is made of Polyetherketoneketone (PEKK) Polymers which are used routinely in surgical implants and dental devices. PEKK provides permanent visibility in all imaging modalities and does not have additional materials that can cause the marker to expand or change form over time.

We are proud to present ProbeFix by Usono


We are proud to announce that we have signed a distribution contract with the Eindhoven startup, Usono, for the Netherlands, Great Britain, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland for the next four years. Now that the official CE approval is received, we can enter the European market.

Usono makes a device called ProbeFix with which it becomes easier to make an ultrasound: It fixes the position of the device so that the physician has both hands free for operation. Co-founders Benjamin Tchang (CEO), Victor Donker (COO) and Jori Verbeek (CTO) have now, a year after their start in HightTechXL, assembled a team of designers and business developers, which accelerated the production. Usono is located on the High Tech Campus and on the Health Innovation Campus of the Maxima Medical Center in Veldhoven

“We were already carefully working on sales through pre-orders and official quotations in the Netherlands and Belgium”, says Victor Donker. “But with Mermaid Medical, a specialist in the field of sales of accessories for ultrasound, it all accelerates. As a result, we must be able to sell hundreds of ProbeFixes and hundreds of thousands of disposable straps in the coming years.”

ProbeFix is a non-invasive tool which provides lengthy and stable fixation of an ultrasound probe to the body. The device facilitates hands-free and continuous ultrasound measurement, inducing reproducibility of the ultrasound image. As a result, it significantly optimizes examination quality. Stress echocardiography procedures and cardiac output monitoring at the intensive care department directly benefit from ProbeFix.
