TheraSleeve

 

  • Unique and exclusive stranding material that combines proven product technology

  • Special glycolide/L-Lactide composition for longer absorption period 

  • Improved visibility on ultrasound for clear visualisation of seed deposition 

  • No requirement for leading spacer so confidence in dosing to base 

 

 

Plug-Free Needles

 

Plug-Free: A Revolution in Brachytherapy Needle Design. Now available in single unit packaging as well.

 

  • Eliminates the requirement for bone wax or synthetic plug; a small tab at the bevelled end of the needle securely holds seeds until release

  • Facilitates navigation and positioning of needle through intuitive fin-to-bevel design and consistent seed placement

  • Provides positive feedback to the operator of transition and implantation of seeds and strands

 

 

IsoLoader

 

IsoLoader is a flexible, quick and convenient intra-operative solution to creating high quality strands within the operating room.

 

  • Simple to use, quality engineered device enables customised strands to be built in real time with a sterile environment

  • Unique technology encapsulates the seeds securely within the strand to prevent separation after implantation

  • Strands can be loaded directly into pre-plugged and Plug-Free needles, or into transfer tubes and after-loaded

  • Stranded and variable load seed/spacer combinations possible, ideal for central needle loads.

Pre-plugged Needles

 

Brachytherapy needles developed to streamline seed loading process. The needles have a silicon coating for ease of insertion and have a polished inside diameter for smooth seed deployment. The needle tips are echo enhanced for ultrasound visualization and electropolished for superior sharpness. Round and square hub needles have foil hub markers to indicate the bevel tip orientation and centimeter markings for depth placement. Custom colours, sizes, and configurations are available.

 

 

Individual Sterile Assay Packaging For BXTAccelyon Strands

 

Unique, exclusive packaging that enables strand activity measurement without compromising sterility. Saves time and cost as source holders do not require repeat autoclaving. Strand  assay can be performed at a  time that is convenient for the implant team.

 

 

Cutting Block

 

Exclusive strand cutting device for the precise cutting and loading of stranded seeds into brachytherapy needles.  Allows custom cutting within an easy to use radioprotective loading assembly. Autoclavable.
