A Bluetooth breakthrough in surgical procedures

Neoprobe introduces a new probe based on Bluetooth wireless technology intended for use in laparoscopic procedures to communicate gamma radiation counts to the Company's Neoprobe GDS or neo2000 control units.

Neoprobe's wireless gamma detection products eliminate cumbersome cables that can unnecessarily complicate the surgical field. Neoprobe's line of gamma detection systems are widely used by cancer surgeons, especially in breast cancers, in a procedure called Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy (SLNB) or Intraoperative Lymphatic Mapping (ILM).
