MATAKINA TECHNOLOGY
- Winner 2014 Global Gold

SCREEN TESTS FOR ALL...


Matakina Technology Limited is a research, development and manufacturing company based in Wellington and draws on science and inspiration from all over the world. The name “Mātakina” is a Māori word meaning “insight”.

That's particularly apt because Matakina is the company behind Volpara Solutions, a suite of breast imaging products that's now the industry and research standard. Volpara has been chosen for national screening projects and large-scale clinical research projects – the most recent being a collaborative project across five University of California medical centres.

With nearly 150 installations, sales across 17 countries and carefully selected partners who understand their local market, Volpara customers recently scanned their two-millionth client, and the business is growing so rapidly that client number 5,000,000 is expected to be scanned in July.

What makes the Volpara suite such an attractive proposition is it takes a lot of the guesswork out of breast imaging. "There's always been a subjective element in assessing mammograms," says Ralph Highnam, Matakina's CEO. "Breast tissue density varies widely and that can impact on the reading of test results. Volpara removes that uncertainty by manipulating the data in a whole new way."

Notable wins for Volpara in 2013 include the cementing of the relationship with medical device manufacturers GE and Siemens, who see Volpara as a strategic fit to sell their supplementary screening products.
