About Xaga Surgical AB: Xaga Surgical is an innovative Swedish medtech company that is passionate about minimizing the risk of infection by developing safer needles for medical use.

Xaga Surgical focuses on the core of infection prevention: greatly reducing the amount of bacteria that accompany the needle into the body. Because of the increasing prevalence of antibiotic resistance in Sweden and the rest of the world, health care desperately needs new infection prevention methods. Xaga Surgical develops patented and patent-pending medical needles designed for a variety of situations where there is a risk of infection. One example is Xaga Surgical’s biopsy needle designed for prostate biopsies, which reduces the amount of bacteria by an impressive 96%.
