December 19, 2017 — ERT recently announced it has acquired iCardiac Technologies, a provider of centralized cardiac safety and respiratory solutions that accelerate clinical research. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The acquisition enables ERT to expand its portfolio of cardiac safety solutions, specifically through the addition of iCardiac’s sophisticated, algorithm-driven technology, which supports efficient, cost-effective and regulatory-compliant methods of conducting QT assessments in early-phase clinical trials.
