Tuflex

Innovative thread design for breast localization

Tuflex is a breast lesion marking device offering intraoperative localization without the constraints of same-day surgery scheduling. The innovative “thread-like wire“ marker can stay in place overnight. This uncouples the marking from the excision procedure. Tuflex can help in avoiding scheduling conflicts, particularly with early morning surgeries.

  • Double-hook provides secure anchoring
  • Safe marking overnight
  • Greater flexibility scheduling appointments
  • Marker made from long-term stable implant material Nitinol
  • Nitinol-thread minimizes risk of accidentally cutting
  • 18 Gauge thin, sharp puncture cannula
  • Ergonomic handle allows for single-handed use (Tuflex Premium)
