Detect cancerous tissue
Détecter le tissu cancéreux
Portable probes hunt down cancer cells during surgery:
EPFL, in partnership with Forimtech and the CHUV, developed two compact, light and wireless probes that help doctors with both of these tasks. The Gamma probe improves on similar devices already in use in radioguided surgery, while the Beta probe is a totally new type of device able to detect extremely small bits of cancerous tissue.
+ Beta probe is based on a new concept of particle detection:
Hunting down malignant cells
+ Gamma probe represents an improvement on an existing technology:
Looking for sentinel lymph nodes and metastases
The two probes, measuring 20 centimeters long and weighing barely 100 grams, are easy to work with and to insert into the surgical wound. The probes guide the surgeon with auditory signals similar to those of a Geiger counter, accurately locating what the human eye often cannot see.
Forimtech S.A. was founded in 2004 in Geneva (Switzerland). With more than 30 years of research experience in the field of particle detectors at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research), the founders decided to apply their know-how to the market of medical devices.
