The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted 510(k) clearance to SurgVision’s Explorer Air II device for use with Pafolacianine during intraoperative fluorescence imaging.

Explorer Air II is claimed to be the first product based on SurgVision’s next-generation technology platform.

Marketed by On Target Laboratories under the brand name Cytalux, Pafolacianine is an optical imaging agent used in fluorescence-guided surgery.

Designed to meet the requirements of oncological intraoperative fluorescence imaging, the system will enable real-time imaging during surgery.

The company stated that the system’s prototype has been evaluated for different indications by academic centres.

According to SurgVision, the Explorer Air II can also attain high sensitivity and imaging fidelity.
