    Product information

    Product details at a glance:

    • Repositionable tumour localisation system for the pre-operative marking of non-palpable, suspicious breast lesions
    • Can be operated single-handedly during simultaneous guiding of an ultrasound probe

    Marking wire:

    • Extremely sharp ground wire tip for a confident penetration of solid tumour tissue
    • Special material and surface quality together with the arched-shape of the marking wire provide optimal visibility duringmammography and ultrasound
    • Monofilament wire provides the highest stability of form and resistance to pressure combined with flexibility
    • No breakage risk, even in harder tissue
    • Improved retaining power minimising dislocation
    • Depth markings provide information on the distance to the tumour centre
    • Supplied clip enables the wire to remain fixed in place after application


    Puncture cannula:

    • Ultrasound marking on the tip of the cannula and depth markings on the cannula shaft for an optimal orientation during the application
    • Particularly sharp and atraumatic due to the faceted bevel
    • Low-friction coating

    With the Tuloc® Premium, SOMATEX® provides its long-standing, proven and reliable wire marking system in combination with an ergonomic handle. Tuloc Premium is used for the preoperative marking of non-palpable, suspicious breast lesions; it is repositionable and facilitates the surgeon's task in localising the intra-operative findings through the depth marking on the wire.

    The Tuloc® Premium marking wire consists of a single-strand, laser-cut Nitinol wire with double-arch shape. Within a location-correcting situation, the localisation wire can easily be retracted into the cannula and then released again. The tips of the double arches are extremely sharp-bevelled and ensure a patient-friendly application and simultaneous safe penetration of solid tumour tissue.

    The Tuloc® Premium marking wire is distinguished by the highest stability of form and resistance to pressure and improved retaining force to prevent dislocation even in harder tissues. The 2 cm long depth marking* around the marker wire allows for a perfect visual and tactile reference point to the lesion and prevents the accidental severance of the wire during the surgical procedure. During ultrasound, the Tuloc Premium marking wire provides an above-average visibility.

    The Tuloc® Premium puncture cannula is distinguished by its high needle-shaft stability and the sharp-faceted bevel. Consequently, the puncture can be carried out atraumatic and in a manner gentle to the patient. In addition, its coating provides good lubricating features. The echogenic marking at the tip of the puncture cannula facilitates precise ultrasonic positioning and the depth markings on the cannula shaft provide optimum orientation during the procedure.

    The ergonomic handle grip, with its lateral slider to extend the wire and the lever to raise the wire, enables a comfortable and confident single-handed operation with the simultaneous guiding of the ultrasound probe during the marking of the lesion.

    The Tuloc® Premium is ready for immediate use because it is supplied sterile and preloaded.



    * The Tuloc cannula and the Tuloc wire are not suited for use in MRI - for this purpose we recommend using the Tuloc MRI instead.
