This order is for the University Hospital of Rouen and follows UGAP's initial Cellvizio system purchase for the Avignon Hospital Center, which occurred in late March shortly after Mauna Kea won the "Innovations" competitive bidding launched by UGAP in November 2015.
"We are pleased to see good momentum in France thanks to our partnership with UGAP, with a second Cellvizio order placed this year We continue to work hard in order for French patients to be able to benefit from the same care opportunities than American patients, in spite of French public authorities' failure to address the issue.
