Dune Medical Devices has designed a reposable version of its MarginProbe radiofrequency spectropscopy device, which can help surgeons identify remaining cancer cells in real time during a lumpectomy.
The updated MarginProbe has a reusable cable and handle and a single-use attachable probe. It has the potential to reduce waste burden of the MarginProbe up to 50%, according to the company.
The technology uses radio-frequency (RF) electrical fields to probe the surface of the cancerous lump removed from the breast, enabling the surgeon to remove additional tissue from the breast during the same procedure and avoid follow-up surgery.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
