Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration has listed on its register the Australian made cold cathode portable X-ray machine, the Micro-X Rover.
The listing allows Micro-X to commercially sell all variants of the product for civilian and military use in Australia – an imaging market the company believes to be worth $10 million a year.
A sales pipeline for the machine has already been built by a local sales force for the Rover, which is the first own-branded X-ray product based on the company’s carbon nanotube emitter to be marketed directly by the company.
Until now only the Nano, branded by distributor Carestream has been registered for sale in Australia.
Rover’s lightweight design and low power consumption ensures the X-ray machine is highly manoeuvrable, easy to use and position around the patient, providing high-quality images for better patient outcomes.
