Date:11/7/2011

ATLANTA, Nov. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Femasys Inc., an emerging medical device developer of women's healthcare solutions, announced today that it has received 510(k) clearance for the FemChec™ Pressure Management Device, the first device designed for a low pressure HSG as a confirmation test after a permanent sterilization procedure is performed.  FemChec utilizes patent-pending technology that limits the applied intrauterine pressure to 200 mmHg, providing confidence to the physician that he/she will not overpressurize while adequately filling the uterine cavity and cornu to obtain the required images.  FemChec allows the physician to meet the requirements of the mandatory HSG confirmation test and may reduce improperly performed tests and procedure complications.

The FemChec Pressure Management Device will be presented to the gynecologic community in November at the AAGL meeting in Hollywood, Florida.  Femasys expects the first devices to begin shipping in the U.S. market in December and is pursuing strategic corporate partnerships for FemChec.  The product is expected to contribute to the growing revenue base of Femasys branded products.  Earlier this year, Femasys launched the FemVue Saline-Air Device designed to provide gynecologists and their patients with a simple way to evaluate tubal patency in the office with existing ultrasound.  The FemVue product has been very well received and is being distributed in the U.S. by Norgenix.  The Company is actively seeking other distribution partners for the rest of the world.
