Urological Ablation System

The Device

A pole-mount RF ablation generator for treatment of over-active bladder.

The Challenge

  • Amphora Medical approached Minnetronix for full design of an RF ablation system, targeting a small pole-mounted form factor and extremely low materials cost.
  • Cost targets on the disposable instrument required use of a custom (non-standard) thermocouple, requiring Minnetronix to design a custom signal processing, digitization, and calibration solution.
  • Amphora’s therapy required fast, accurate, and fail-safe compliance to a given temperature profile. Minnetronix was able to implement this in a low-cost manner using creative engineering solutions.

How Minnetronix Added Value

  • Proven track record in RF generator design – Based on more than 20 successful RF medical device projects
  • Proficiency with sensors and signal processing – Minnetronix designed high-speed, high-accuracy, custom circuitry for sensing an atypical thermocouple specified by customer
  • Leveraging experience and supply chain – To deliver a high-performance, low-cost design
