C-RAD (based in Uppsala Sweden) and Aktina Medical Corporation implement a distribution agreement for the US market. The two companies immediately put into place a US strategy and product training of the Aktina sales force was carried out. Only after a few weeks a first order of a Sentinel system was placed. The customer is First Coast Oncology located in Florida who decided to go clinical with their third Sentinel system.

CEO, C-RAD AB

“The immediate success of a first Sentinel order is of course encouraging for both the C-RAD and the Aktina staff and the further development of the US market.

C-RAD is also enthusiastic to start selling the Aktina program in the Scandinavian countries. The Aktina program will in parallel be promoted with product lines of C-RAD and IBA Dosimetry. http://www.aktina.com/news/aktina-partners-with-c-rad-for-us-distribution-of-sentinel/The product lines are complementary.”

VP, Product Development, Aktina Medical Corporation

“We have been listening carefully to our customers – and one thing has been quite clear: the tools for handling intra-fractional and respiratory motion have been limited. And now there is almost a seamless integration between the Sentinel patient monitoring system and the Aktina line of immobilization and positioning solutions – closing a previously substantial gap in the clinical process. We are proud to move forward with a partner like C-RAD“
