April 28, 2022

GUILFORD, Conn., and NEW YORK, NY – Butterfly Network, Inc. (NYSE: BFLY), a digital health company transforming care with handheld, whole-body ultrasound, and Equine Purchasing & Inventory Company (EPIC) announce a collaboration to offer its members the Butterfly iQ+ Vet — the world’s only single probe, multi-species, whole-body imaging system.

EPIC is a cooperative network of more than 60 equine practices across the United States. It provides education and training in inventory management, strategy and procurement. EPIC members considering incorporating a handheld diagnostic imaging tool to their practice will be able to purchase the Butterfly iQ+ Vet at a discount and receive training targeted to the clinic’s individual needs. 

The iQ+ Vet is the second-generation of the veterinary imaging device and brings sharper imaging, a new procedural guidance tool, and hardware improvements that make the solution more powerful, versatile, and easy-to-use. Butterfly enables in-stall, in-pasture and in-clinic diagnostic imaging at a price point that allows every practitioner to have this valuable tool in their pocket. The iQ+ Vet can be used for lameness diagnostics, a FLASH colic scan or an ultrasound guided procedure — and more.

“When an equine practice needs a handheld imaging solution, Butterfly is ready to offer veterinarians a powerful diagnostic tool, plus the training they need,” said Jenna Mutch, Butterfly Network’s Senior Director and Head of Commercial, Veterinary. “The Butterfly iQ+ Vet is tough enough to go into the field with practitioners and patients of all sizes. With military-grade testing, iQ+ Vet can withstand a 4-foot drop*, a 100G shock pulse, and your toughest shifts. Our imaging system is ready to meet the requirements of EPIC members, while giving their patients an imaging system that’s accessible in almost any environment.”
