Senzime: Improved patient monitoring is rewarded - Senzimes subsidiary company MD Biomedical "The Year's Spin-Off Company" of the Umeå Gala

Uppsala, November 5, 2015. Senzimes (publ) subsidiary MD Biomedical AB
became the year's spin-off company of the Umeå Gala. To win the
award, a company must have its basis in research/education at Umeå
University, SLU or industrial research in Umeå. The company should
have a strong business growth and clear mission. Umeå Gala is an
annually event attracting over eight hundred participants from across
the region.

MD Biomedical AB originates from Umeå University where Pernilla
Abrahamsson, during her postgraduate studies, discovered the
possibility of measuring metabolic changes from the surface of an
organ instead of penetrating the organ with a needle. MD Biomedical
AB has developed and patented OnZurf Probe suited for measurements on
the surface of various organs. The discovery means less risk of
complications and thus expands the use of microdialysis technique.

The idea came by chance when Pernilla Abrahamsson placed a
conventional probe inside the heart muscle. Accidentally the probe
slipped out of the heart and ended up on the surface without a
difference in the readings and so the idea was born to develop a
"milder" probe that could be placed on the surface instead of being
inserted into the organ.

"Onzurf Probe can improve the quality of life for seriously ill
patients while reducing the number of long hospital stays and become
a cost effective solution for the county councils. To receive the
award as a spin-off is a great honor and recognition prior the
challenging and exciting commercialization phase ", says Pernilla
Abrahamsson, product and business development manager at Senzime AB.
