X-Grafik / Breast Cancer Diagnosis System


To encourage early examinations and facilitate more precise diagnosis, X-Grafik works as a liquid based Smear-Test which offers a quick and painless sampling of cells at the most important spot in the female breast for cancer cell mutations. After applying an anaesthetising and relaxing plaster on the female nipple a cap is placed to inject and absorb micro amounts of saline solution which than carrys cellular information about the ductal system of the female breast. The device carrys general pneumatik engeneering and pressure controls and provides a maximum of privacy and stability by fixating the caps with a specialised bra.
