More fun with Echo (ECTE)

Here’s a link to the original 510(k) letter from the FDA to Sontra (nka Echo) from August, 2004:

The device, at the time called SonoPrep is intended to be used with 4% lidocaine.

Based on the author’s review of SONT/ECTE’s filings, this device, which has been cleared for sale since 2004 generated the following revenues for ECTE:

2009: $0
2008: $0
2007: $12k
2006: $40k
2005: $171k
Total: $223k

This technology has generated, life to date, $223,000.00. The idea that the same technology, for the same application, under a new name, “Prelude” as opposed to “SonoPrep” will be any more successful is absurd.  That is not an idea I would be buying.
