GOLETA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Inogen, Inc. (Nasdaq: INGN), a medical technology company offering innovative respiratory products for use in the homecare setting, today announced that it has achieved regulatory milestones in the EU and the US to support its portable oxygen concentrator products.
Inogen received European Medical Device Regulation (EU MDR) certification from its Notified Body, the British Standards Institution (BSI) in December 2022, granting permission to sell and commercialize Inogen One G4 and the updated version of its Inogen One G5 portable oxygen concentrators in the EU.
Additionally on December 9, 2022, Inogen was granted clearance for its 510(k) premarket notification by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a new portable oxygen concentrator, Rove 4, which will take Inogen’s leadership in portability of POCs to the next level.
These regulatory achievements enhance Inogen’s portfolio of portable oxygen concentrator products with the addition of the Rove series. Rove 6, a new and improved 6-setting device has already been launched in European countries where reimbursement is grandfathered, and Rove 4, a 4-setting device delivering ultimate performance and portability, is expected to launch in the US by the back half of 2023 having received FDA market clearance in December 2022.
