--FemCerv ® , the first endocervical tissue sampler of its kind in the detection of cervical cancer, was well-received after being presented at the AAGL conference attended by over 2,000 leading gynecologic specialists--

ATLANTA, Dec. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Femasys Inc. (NASDAQ: FEMY), a biomedical company aiming to meet women's needs worldwide by developing a suite of product candidates that include minimally invasive, in-office technologies for reproductive health, today reported that it held a promotional launch of its diagnostic product, FemCerv®, the first endocervical tissue sampler designed to improve tissue quality and quantity at the annual meeting of AAGL (formerly known as the meeting of the American Association for Gynecologic Laparoscopists), where the product was very well received by gynecologic physicians and surgeons. The annual AAGL meeting gathers laparoscopic surgeons worldwide dedicated to the research and advancement of minimally invasive gynecologic procedures.

“During our recent market launch and presentation of FemCerv at AAGL, a major medical meeting of gynecologic surgeons and other related specialists, we were extremely encouraged by the interest expressed related to the product,” said Kathy Lee-Sepsick, founder, president and chief executive officer of Femasys. “Gynecologic specialists acknowledged the novelty of FemCerv, an endocervical curette that obtains a virtually pain free comprehensive tissue sample when evaluating for cervical cancer. The current process relies on antiquated tools that can be painful and result in an inadequate or contaminated sample, which may lead to unnecessary invasive procedures.”

Ms. Lee-Sepsick continued, “We were also extremely pleased to hear positive feedback from gynecologic specialists about FemVue®, our first of its kind commercially available diagnostic product for infertility that enables ultrasound evaluation of the fallopian tubes. FemVue works in conjunction with our other approved product, FemCath, a selective catheter, which is expected to be commercially available later this month. By the end of this year, we will offer three commercially available products in our portfolio in addition to our leading clinical development programs, FemaSeed® and FemBloc®. Our goal is to elevate care and expand options for women with our suite of innovative products like FemVue, FemCerv, and FemCath that may provide meaningful additional incremental revenue in the near-term, while we complete the clinical development programs for FemaSeed and FemBloc.”

About AAGL

Founded in 1971, this professional organization for gynecologic laparoscopic surgeons (formerly known as the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists) is dedicated to the research and advancement of minimally invasive gynecologic procedures. The organization has over 7,500 members in over 110 countries. More recently, the name was switched to just the acronym to reflect its international scope.

About FemCerv

FemCerv is the first FDA-cleared product designed to capture a complete and uncontaminated endocervical tissue sample in a relatively pain-free procedure. FemCerv features an expandable collection chamber that is exposed during sampling and closed during removal for containment of cervical cells and tissue.

About FemVue

FemVue is the first FDA-cleared product that creates natural saline and air contrast and enables safe, reliable, and real time evaluation of the fallopian tubes with ultrasound. When performed with a uterine cavity assessment, a more comprehensive exam can be achieved from the comfort of the GYN’s office.

About FemCath

FemCath is the first FDA-cleared intrauterine catheter that allows for selective evaluation of a fallopian tube with contrast. FemCath features our proprietary delivery platform, which places balloon technology close to the opening of a selected fallopian tube for directed delivery.

About FemaSeed

FemaSeed is a first-of-its-kind infertility solution in development for directional intrauterine insemination that delivers sperm to the fallopian tube where conception occurs. It is intended to augment natural fertilization and provide a first-line treatment option for infertility.

About FemBloc

FemBloc is a first-of-its-kind, nonsurgical, in-office solution in development for permanent birth control. It is intended to be a safer option for women by eliminating the need for anesthesia, incisions, and permanent implants. FemBloc has the potential to offer women a convenient and reliable alternative method of permanent birth control.
