Dune Medical Devices is a commercial-stage company revolutionizing tissue characterization technology in breast cancer surgery, diagnosis and targeted treatment with its proprietary Radio-Frequency Spectroscopy Technology (RFST). Dune’s first commercial product, MarginProbe®, in routine commercial use in 70 hospitals and in over 16,000 surgeries in the US and Israel, has been proven to identify positive margins during breast conservation surgery, enabling surgeons to immediately remove additional microscopic residual cancer, thereby reducing the need for repeat surgeries. The second generation of the RFST, in development, serves as a platform to enhance diagnostic accuracy by providing pathologists with tissue characterization data alongside biopsy samples to increase interpretation accuracy and eliminate unnecessary procedures and costs

Dune is entering a phase of commercial growth and expansion of its RFST platform to establish RFST data as a unique tissue biomarker that provides information complementary to molecular (e.g., genomic) biomarkers for optimal personalized treatment selection and adoption of new therapies.
