AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- International Biophysics Corporation, a global medical device manufacturer based in Austin, Texas, announced they have received FDA 510k clearance for their FloPump 32 centrifugal disposable heart pump. The FloPump 32 is one of the smallest centrifugal pumps in the world at 32ml prime. The FloPump 32 is a single use, centrifugal heart pump designed and intended to be used in conjunction with the Maquet® RotaFlow™ console.

Added Mr. Shockley, "We launched the FloPump 32 internationally to strong demand in 2017 when we received both the CE mark for Europe and ANVISA for the Brazilian market. We anticipate the same strong demand here in the U.S now that we have been cleared for this market too."
