    Breast surgery localization wires for efficient marking of breast lesions.

    Our newly added localization wires give physicians access to a complete portfolio of minimally invasive breast lesion localization products. This suite of modern breast biopsy wires allows intraoperative lesion localization for surgeons, with versatile marking capabilities, and serves as a smart complement to LOCalizer™ wire-free guidance system.

    Tuflex™ Thread Markers

    Tuflex thread markers facilitate intraoperative localization, distinguished by a flexible multi-wire design. Designed to decouple wire localization from surgery, it provides greater flexibility and helps to eliminate same-day localization and surgery scheduling challenges. The markers can also be used for stereotactic, mammography, and ultrasound procedures.

    Improves Scheduling Options

    The Tuflex flexible thread marker decouples wire localization from surgery for up to 3 days before placement.

    Stability with Secure Anchoring

    The marker is designed to anchor firmly in the tissue, made of 19 wires twisted together.

    Single-handed Operation

    Tuflex premium has an ergonomic handle for simple operation for ease of use during procedures.

    Versatile Application

    Enables localization flexibility and techniques familiar to radiologists and surgeons.
