The Original Mammotome® Breast Biopsy System

As the world-wide leader in vacuum-assisted breast biopsy and tissue marking, Mammotome is committed to advancing technology for early detection of breast cancer.

The Mammotome® Biopsy System was the first vacuum-assisted biopsy device on the market, and is also the most clinically acclaimed. The key clinical proof is the more than 4 million patients who have undergone a biopsy with the Mammotome® biopsy system, and the 280+ clinical articles published on its efficacy. Our system empowers physicians to offer a more accurate diagnosis without the complications of an open surgical biopsy; maximizes tissue quality and diagnosis accuracy; and keeps up with the changing needs of physicians and patients with a software-driven and upgradeable system.
