Health Beacons’ RFID Localization System, or LOCalizer™, revolutionizes the standard of care for marking non-palpable breast tumors for surgical removal.
The LOCalizer™ is designed to precisely locate RFID markers implanted at the site of non-palpable breast lesions targeted for surgical removal.

“When I first used the TagFinder, I immediately recognized several advantages over using wires, for both the patient and myself (the surgeon). The patient doesn’t have to have a wire hanging out of their breast, and I can easily localize the lesion without having to predict where the end of my wire is.”
