Mammotome Launches the LumiMARK™ Biopsy Site Marker, a Tissue Marker Distinct from Every Angle

CINCINNATI, OHIO – March 28, 2024 – Mammotome announced the 510(k) clearance for the novel LumiMARK™ Biopsy Site Marker, a tissue marker line designed with visibility top of mind. The LumiMARK™ markers are distinct from every angle under ultrasound, mammography, and magnetic resonance, marking another great investment to the Mammotome® Markers portfolio.1

“Mammotome created this line of markers by collaborating with radiologists to understand their needs and concerns with current nitinol markers,” said Ben Sandefur, Mammotome Vice President and General Manager. “The LumiMARK™ Biopsy Site Markers are easily identifiable, visible under all modalities, and offer multiple contrasting shapes to support the various clinical scenarios that radiologists encounter when serving the individual needs of their patients.”

The LumiMARK™ markers are 510(k) cleared for both breast tissue and axillary lymph nodes and come in three distinctive, multifaceted 3D shapes and sizes. This provides radiologists with the power of choice and a marker to support different clinical scenarios. The unique and discernibly man-made shapes enable easy identification from any angle and quick confirmation of target tissue.1,2,3 For example, the smaller 5mm Tulip™ shape may be selected for use cases needing a smaller marker.3 The 10mm Rose™ shape is designed for effortless locating under ultrasound.3

These self-expanding markers deliver great visibility under ultrasound, appearing hyperechoic both immediately and permanently.1 The LumiMARK™ marker portfolio offers multiple three-dimensional shapes for visibility and distinguishability under ultrasound, mammography, and magnetic resonance imaging.

Mammotome continues to focus on delivering cutting-edge solutions to serve the unmet needs of clinicians and patients across the globe. The LumiMARK™ Biopsy Site Marker will be available to clinicians in the United States in the summer of 2024 with plans to expand to Canada and other select countries across the globe after regulatory approval.
