ATEC® Breast Biopsy System for Stereotactic Biopsy

The stereotactic breast biopsy system that is fast, safe and simple

Our flagship ATEC vacuum-assisted breast biopsy system is an all-in-one platform intended for use under ultrasound, MRI, stereotactic and 3D™-image guidance.
 
Designed for radiologists and surgeons who consider compassionate patient care and results as essential elements in minimally invasive breast biopsy.
 
The ATEC system is:
 
Fast
  • Tissue acquisition occurs every 4.5 seconds, typically lasting less than 30 seconds total.1
  • Easily delivers local anesthetic directly to the biopsy site during every cycle without interruption.
  • Combination of saline lavage and consistent aspiration helps ensure a core with every cycle.
 
Safe
  • Closed system reduces contamination risk.
  • Fully disposable device and tubing minimize staff and patient exposure to biohazard.
 
Simple
  • Simple one minute setup and clean-up.
  • No software required for user to program or operate the console.
