Apollo: the 5th generation of C-Trak gamma probe

28th June 2022

The C-Trak’s superior directionality has proven itself with surgeons around the world

The C-Trak range of gamma probes has proved a popular instrument with surgeons and consultants in hospitals for radioisotope detection. Building on the legacy of the popular Galaxy, the Apollo is the current and 5th generation of C-Trak. It has been designed to be the most sensitive and directional navigation probe available for surgical procedures requiring radioisotope detection, such as sentinel node biopsies, parathyroid, and tumour localisation.

The C-Trak range of gamma probes is now used in many countries

Wireless and wired probe connectivity

The C-Trak Apollo finally allows users to switch between wired and wireless handsets. Connecting via Bluetooth, the wireless handset allows surgeons performing timed counts to initiate these without other staff assistance. For those who prefer using a wired probe, the Apollo can be used with a traditional cable.

Probes specialised for specific application areas

A range of probes and collimators allow the C-Trak Apollo to be used in a range of procedures and treatments, including breast cancer, head and neck cancer, melanoma, parathyroid, and laparoscopy.

The proven OmniProbe® is available in either a straight or angled orientation and optimized for many common procedures, like sentinel lymph node biopsies in breast cancer treatment. The Omniprobe® Lechner collimator uses a smaller aperture to narrow directionality further, optimizing it for head and neck procedures or others where subjects are often overshadowed by the injection site.

Alternative versions also include the OmniProbe® PET, which is used to detect 18-FDG and other PET radiotracers, and the OmniProbe® EL for laparoscopic use, which is available in 0°, 20°, or 90° angles.
