See what makes HydroMARK a unique breast biopsy marking experience.
“We use HydroMARK exclusively for all of our biopsies. We have had such a great experience with HydroMARK that we need no other clip.”
What is the composition of the hydrogel?
The hydrogel is composed of polyethylene glycol (PEG).
Does HydroMARK contain nickel?
The HydroMARK stainless steel marker products contain a percentage of nickel. The HydroMARK titanium products contain no nickel.
What is the duration of HydroMARK’s enhanced long-term visibility?
Studies have shown that visibility can last up to 12 months in some patients.1

The all-natural biopsy marker provides a non-metal marking option with enhanced ultrasound long-term visibility carrier plug.
The rapid collagen expansion anchors the marker within the biopsy cavity reducing the likelihood of movement.
