Echo Therapeutics Submits CE Mark Technical File For Its SymphonyA® CGM System

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Echo Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ECTE) ("Echo"), a medical device company developing its Symphony ® CGM System as a non-invasive, wireless continuous glucose monitoring system, today announced that it has submitted a Conformite Europeenne (CE) Mark Technical File to its European Notified Body to obtain market approval for its Symphony CGM System in the hospital critical care environment.  CE Marking indicates a medical device's compliance with European Union (EU) legislation and directives with respect to safety, health, environmental and consumer protection and is necessary for commercialization in countries in the EU. The Company anticipates receiving CE Marking in the 2 nd quarter of 2014.

"This filing marks the successful culmination of efforts to execute on the multitude of directives required for an anticipated CE Marking and would not have been possible without the dedication of our team," said Robert F. Doman, Executive Chairman and Interim CEO of Echo Therapeutics, Inc. "With the completion of this important regulatory step, we can now focus on the implementation of the product enhancements essential to the initial European launch, as well as to the planned U.S. pivotal trial. We look forward to providing further updates on our progress as we prepare for a limited launch of Symphony in Europe."
