About Lumicell, Inc.
Lumicell is a technology leader in the field of image-guided cancer surgery. The company is developing a novel system that enables real-time detection of tumor tissue in patients so that no cancer cells are left behind during surgery. The LUM System includes three integrated components: a fluorescent optical contrast agent that is cancer- and immuno-activated, a novel hand-held imaging device that instantly scans the cavity walls to view the fluorescent cells with single-cell detection, and proprietary decision software that displays the image instantly on a monitor to guide surgical removal of cancerous tissue. The unprecedented ability to see and remove cancer cells remaining in the cavity – beyond the margin of the specimen – during the initial surgery has the potential to significantly improve surgical outcomes and reduce healthcare costs by eliminating the need for repeat surgeries. Lumicell is investigating the LUM System in patients undergoing surgery for breast cancer, prostate cancer, colorectal, esophageal and pancreatic cancers. Additional future indications are planned to include surgeries for lung, ovarian, and brain cancers. For more information, please visit www.lumicell.com.
