QART Medical – Approval to Begin Landmark Clinical Study

QART Medical, an ISO13485 certified MedTech company, is proud to announce the receipt of an approval to begin a new clinical study. This study will evaluate its FDA registered flagship product, the Q300™, in real-life conditions for the most commonly performed IVF procedures, Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). The study is an open label, non-randomized, historical-control study, in which quantitative phase microscopy (QPM) will be used in a clinical setting to assist with an IVF procedure. The performance of the Q300™ was previously tested in a multi-center clinical study, which was recently completed to favorable results.
