Analogic Corporation Receives 510(k) FDA Clearance for Its FETALGARD Lite – NIBP Multifunctional Fetal Monitor

PEABODY, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 7, 2006–Analogic
Corporation (NASDAQ: ALOG) announced today that the U.S. Food & Drug
Administration (FDA) has given market clearance for the FETALGARD
Lite® – NIBP (Non-Invasive Blood Pressure) fetal monitor.

The FETALGARD Lite – NIBP measures maternal non-invasive blood
pressure for monitoring Pregnancy-Induced Hypertension (PIH) in
addition to providing standard fetal monitoring capabilities. It is
ideal for conducting routine Non-Stress Tests (NSTs) and for
evaluating high-risk, pre-term patients at home or in the physician’s
office. FETALGARD Lite – NIBP offers “beat-to-beat” fetal heart rate
analysis on twins, and measures maternal uterine activity and blood
pressure. This uniquely versatile fetal monitor is portable,
battery-operated, and weighs only 5 lbs., making it appropriate for
use in a variety of settings. It also offers the first alternative to
Z-fold paper because the FETALGARD Lite – NIBP can store and transfer
tracings to a PC for viewing, reporting, and printing. Alternatively,
multiple patients’ records can be stored and subsequently “fast
printed” to an Analogic Z-fold recorder when hard copies are needed
for review or patient records.

Dan Webster, General Manager of Analogic’s Life Care Systems
Division, noted, “The FETALGARD Lite – NIBP is a significant addition
to our growing family of LIFEGARD® non-invasive patient monitors.
Its unique features and extensive communications capabilities allow
configuration to specific clinical needs and settings, including the
patient’s home. The FETALGARD Lite – NIBP represents a new generation
of cost-effective monitoring devices that are increasingly important
for high-risk pregnancy and antepartum patient care.”

The FETALGARD Lite – NIBP, along with the entire LIFEGARD family
of non-invasive patient monitors, is available for online ordering
directly from Analogic. To place an order, or to obtain more
