CareFusion has announced clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its new Viking on Nicolet® EDX electrodiagnostic system under the 510(k) approval process. The company describes the EDX system as a multi-modality device for monitoring and testing electrophysiological information from the human nervous and muscular system.

Background
