Preceptis Medical




One of the newest entries in the Minnesota medical device field is Preceptis, whose introducer concept promises to make ear-tube insertion, one of the most common pediatric surgical procedures in the United States, a less painful process. It's a less invasive approach than traditional tube insertion, which requires general anesthetic. Under 30-year industry vet Anderson, the company has earned not only funding but the 2013 Minnesota Cup grand prize for its innovative product. Clinical evaluation has been ongoing, with the product expected to go on the market in 2014.
