Dune Medical debuts waste-saving surgical probe

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.
