Acarix, CADScor®System and the measurement of heart sounds

Acarix was founded in 2009 and since 2010, the Danish venture capital companies, SEED Capital (DK) and Sunstone Life Science Ventures (DK) funded the development of the company until the listing on the First North Premium, in december 2016. Acarix has also strengthened its management team with new people with experience from senior positions within the international medtech company – the CEO Søren Rysholt Christiansen previously worked at ELOS Medtech, GN ReSound and Cook Medical.

Acarix CADScor®System is based on cutting-edge research in the ljuddetektion and signalprocess. It has long been known that both the heart’s contraction and turbulent blood flow gives rise to sound. Kontraktionsrelaterade sound occurs in the lower frequencies, while the turbulent noises from blood flow caused by partial obstruction (stenosis) in the kransartärerna) causes a sound of higher frequency. The detection of these murmurs require devices with high sensitivity because the energy of the murmur is very weak. To detect and register the murmur arising from the coronary arteries requires not only an advanced sensor, but also that the detector placement on the skin over the heart is such that the recorded signal is optimized and that the external noise is avoided.

CADScor®System with 97% certainty (negative predictive value) exclude kransartärsjukdom, that is to say that the diagnostic accuracy is very high. Acarix believe that this opens the possibility for the method to be used as a first test, which reduces patient anxiety and shorten the waiting time, while improving the prioritisation of patients in need of more expensive and invasive diagnostic methods.

Acarix CADScor®System is built as an all-in-one system comprehensive recording of blåsljuden, signal processing and presentation of p.k. patient-specific CAD-score, on the device’s screen.

CADScor®System also includes the necessary electronics to instruct the staff and guide the patient through the mätperioderna directly on the screen. The system also includes a docking station for the daily test and calibration of the sensor. The system is integrated with an adhesive plate that locks the CADScor®sensor in a fixed position above the heart during the measurement.

The software in the Acarix CADScor®System ensures that the recording is made under controlled conditions.

CADScor®System is CE-certified (by TÜV 2015). Commercial launch is planned in 2017.
