Augmenix’s vision is to improve the lives of patients receiving radiation therapy. The company is using this technology to develop products that decrease unintended radiation damage to normal organs during radiation therapy and to mark soft tissue.
Developing Advanced Hydrogel Products for Radiotherapy
Started in 2007, Augmenix is focused on improving the outcomes of radiotherapy through the use of absorbable hydrogels. The company is using this technology to develop products that decrease unintended radiation damage to normal organs during radiation therapy and to mark soft tissue.
SpaceOAR Hydrogel was FDA Cleared on April 1, 2015.
TraceIT® Tissue Marker
More recently Augmenix has developed an absorbable tissue marker that marks soft tissue for a surgical procedure or future surgical procedures. TraceIT® Tissue Marker is visible on multi-modality imaging allowing for improved tissue marking.
This technology licensed from Incept LLC comes from a line of products that have made a meaningful impact in the areas of neurosurgery and interventional cardiology. Augmenix now intends to bring this technology to the field of medicine through an experienced management team and high quality investors.
TraceIT Tissue Marker was FDA Cleared on January 23, 2013.
