Hansen Medical's CEO Presents At JP Morgan Healthcare Conference (Transcript)

We’ve also got a significant installed base of robotics systems in electrophysiology market. We’ve shipped 104 systems through September of 2011. And we are shipping more systems every quarter.

We’re also very excited about a new opportunity for the company in the, Vascular space. We’ve recently got a CE mark approval for our vascular robot which we call the Magellan System. In Europe, in Q4, we have placed our first system, we’ve got clinical cases coming out of that first system as well and we’ll talk much more about that in a few minutes.

And lastly, we continue to invest heavily in R&D. We believe our pipeline is very important to our future success, we are developing products for use with those two robotic systems and we have a – what we believe a game changing shape sensing technology which we call FOSSL for improved visualization of catheters used in minimally invasive procedures and again, we’ll talk more about that in just a minute.

So, the company was founded in 2002. We’ll celebrate our 10th anniversary this year. Since that time, we’ve achieved a number of significant accomplishments which we believe that positions us well to be the leader of – in the flexible robotic space. You don't change the way medicine is practiced relative to medical robotics without a lot of good partnerships and we have several of them.

On the capital side, we’ve got partnerships with Philips and GE and Siemens. On the intellectual property and products side, partnerships with Intuitive Surgical, we have an important cross-license from them to some patents and run (ph) technology on our FOSSL.

2011 was a very good year for us. We continue to improve and grow our electrophysiology business in 2011. Obviously we got our Magellan System launched in Europe and towards the end of the year. And in the early part of the year, we signed an important license agreement with Philips Healthcare, relative to the shape sensing technology and we’ll talk more about that in a minute as well.
