If you are interested in upgrading from blue dye or are looking to reduce your patients exposure to radioactive materials, once you give our Magtrace® lymphatic tracer and Sentimag® guidance system a try, you won’t look back.
The tiny particles in the Magtrace® lymphatic tracer are able to quickly pass through the lymphatic system, following the same path a spreading cancer cell would take.*
The system then guides the physician to where the liquid collects in the armpit, to see if the cancer has spread. This sentinel node biopsy procedure has helped thousands of women avoid unnecessary and more invasive surgery.†
The Magtrace® lymphatic tracer has proven to be effective in numerous clinical trials involving more than 2,300+ patients across Europe and North America.*
Since those trials it has been used in over 40,000 women, in more than 350 cancer centres across more than 30 countries.* This technique allows any patient or any hospital to access the highest standard in breast cancer staging.
The magnetic liquid works in as little as 20 minutes and can still be detected many days afterwards.†
This offers unrivalled flexibility on when the patient is injected, which can be timed to coincide with a planned hospital visit or when in the operating room, under anaesthesia and pain-free.
No one wants to be injected with painful radioactive tracers and with the Magtrace® lymphatic tracer nobody needs to. This safe injection eliminates radiation exposure and the need for blue dyes that may cause severe allergic reactions.†
