March 21, 2017 (York UK) —York Instruments Ltd. (subsidiary of Croton Healthcare, LLC, Coral Springs, FL) has received its first order for a MEGSCAN™ magnetoencephalography (MEG) instrument. The purchase was made by the prestigious University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas (UTSW). York Instruments’ newly developed MEG system maps brain activity by recording magnetic fields produced by electrical currents occurring naturally in neurons of the brain.
York Instruments’ Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing Gordon Haid said, “We are extremely happy to be working closely with the talented individuals at UTSW as we install York Instruments’ new MEG platform. As the first member of our MEGSCAN™ beta site program, we expect to collaborate extensively with UTSW on the development of the technology and expanding indications for MEG.”
The MEGSCAN™ will be installed at UTSW later this year, where it will be used for both neuroscience research and eventually routine clinical evaluations of patients suffering from epilepsy and other debilitating illnesses. The system incorporates patented HyQUID™ sensor technology in a liquid helium-free cryogenic environment, high-density cortical coverage, integrated simultaneous EEG, new state of the art electronics capability and an advanced software infrastructure.
