GM Medical, Butterfly Network Partner to Distribute Butterfly iQ+ Vet in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland
Agreement cements second European partnership for Butterfly Network
GUILFORD, Conn., NEW YORK, NY, and BIRKERØD, Denmark – GM Medical, a specialist in distributing medical equipment, will now offer the Butterfly iQ+ Vet to veterinarians in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland. GM Medical is the second European partner of Butterfly Network, Inc. (NYSE: BFLY), a digital health company transforming care with handheld, whole-body, multi-species ultrasound.
Since 2020, GM Medical has provided its customers the Butterfly iQ+ for humans, which is the world’s only ultrasound transducer that can perform whole-body imaging in a single, handheld probe. It has received CE Mark and is classified as a Class IIa portable ultrasound system. The strong reception of the human probe led GM Medical to explore the Butterfly iQ+ Vet.
“Since we love the human probe, the veterinary ultrasound is a perfect match,” said Brian Vester, Product Manager for GM Medical. “It’s for every veterinarian. Roughly 50% of veterinarians in our area have existing experience with ultrasound, which makes the ease of use of the iQ+ Vet and training Butterfly offers important. We are convinced the point-of-care approach that iQ+ Vet delivers will be a game-changer amongst veterinarians.”
Butterfly iQ+ Vet is the world’s only single probe, whole-body, multi-species imaging system. The iQ+ Vet is the second-generation of Butterfly’s veterinary ultrasound device and brings sharper imaging, a new procedural guidance tool, and hardware improvements that make the solution more powerful, versatile and easy-to-use compared to the first generation iQ Vet.
“We are proud to continue to expand diagnostic imaging access across Europe,” said Butterfly Network’s Vice President, Veterinary, Jenna Mutch. “GM Medical is the perfect partner to help veterinarians in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland see for themselves the valuable clinical insights and improved outcomes that adding iQ+ Vet to their day-to-day practice can bring.”
