Lumicell Logo

Lumicell is developing a device that will enable surgeons to check the tumor site immediately following surgery for remaining cancer cells after removing the tumor. The technology consists of a proprietary detector and initially a commercial available molecule marker. The detector along with a dye that is injected into the site will radiate fluorescent light when coming into contact with a cancer enzyme, allowing the surgeon to remove the remaining cancer cells. The technology must be capable of detecting a small number of cancer cells (1-100) left behind. The detector will have a disposable tip for each patient and reagents that will be the basis of the reimbursement and Lumicell revenue along with the initial sales of the instrument.
