Companion Animal Health Announces Strategic Investment in Early Cancer Detection Solution
March 22, 2022 (BUSINESS WIRE)
Companion Animal Health, a global animal health company specializing in laser and rehabilitation therapies and on-site diagnostics in veterinary markets worldwide, and a division of DJO, today announced a strategic agreement, including an equity investment, with HT BioImaging to co-brand and exclusively sell the HTVet product in the U.S. and Canada. HTVet enables a non-invasive, real-time diagnostic of suspicious cutaneous and subcutaneous masses at the point-of-care. HTVet delivers accurate results within minutes, enabling simple and accurate testing in-clinic without the need for labor-intensive, invasive procedures and external labs as the first line. At the heart of HTVet’s innovative technology is Heat Diffusion Imaging (HDI), an AI-based algorithm that recognizes cancerous cells by their unique dynamic heat-flow properties. HDI enables early detection of cancer and classification of suspicious masses. The HTVet is a game-changer that enables veterinarians to classify and detect cancer earlier. Craig Tockman, President of Companion Animal Health, stated, "Cancer is the cause of death in 47% of dogs and 32% of cats, over the age of 10 years old. Most of the deaths are due to late detection and misdiagnosis. HTVet helps veterinarians identify cancer early, significantly improving the survival rate for many patients. Early detection is key to saving lives. HTVet is a cost-effective, safe, and accurate tool for cancer detection and is a strong fit with Companion’s broader mission to support the oncology continuum of care.” “HTVet enables Companion to offer an innovative solution in the veterinary oncology space,” said Terry Ross, President of Recovery Sciences for DJO. “The Companion portfolio is centered on empowering the veterinarian to provide broader diagnosis and treatment options at the point-of-care. With HTVet, we will help veterinarians provide a critical, life-saving service to their pet owners, and deliver on the Companion promise.” HTVet is another addition to Companion’s portfolio of laser and regenerative therapies and on-site diagnostic solutions. HTVet will launch with a new, co-branded name, and will be available for sale later this year.
