Predictable [1,2,4]

Achieve consistent ablation zones within a variety of tissues using synchronous microwave energy delivered at 915 MHz. This wavelength is less reliant on conductive heating which yields more predictable ablation volumes.

Scalable [3]

Obtain complete coverage by selecting the ablation size and shape that meets your clinical needs. Scale and shape your ablation volume by adjusting the power and time settings and using either one, two, or three antennas.

Flexible [5,6]

Choose an angle of approach which is most suitable for the clinical scenario – for percutaneous, open, and laparoscopic procedures. Parallel placement (using a 0-degree angle of approach) is not required.
