Marlborough medical device company CardioFocus announced on Wednesday it has entered into a $20-million agreement with a Chinese firm for a license to produce and distribute its catheter ablation HeartLight X3 System.

The licensing and distribution agreement with China Grand Pharmaceutical provides a license to the company to seek regulatory approvals and commercialize the HeartLight X3 System in China, Hong Kong and Macau, according to a release from CardioFocus.

The HeartLight X3 System is CardioFocus' catheter ablation technology for controlled and consistent pulmonary vein isolation, a treatment for atrial fibrillation.

Grand Pharma will pay CardioFocus up to $20 million for the rights to seek regulatory approval and ultimately distribute and manufacture HeartLight X3 in China. CardioFocus will receive $12.5 million of the license fee as an upfront payment and the remainder will be paid upon the achievement of certain milestones, according to the release.
