For healthcare providers needing sophisticated microwave ablation technology, the HS Amica™ system works by applying heat directly into the tissue through the probe, which agitates water molecules in the tissue, generates heat, and causes ablation of the tissue. The HS Amica™ system is FDA-cleared for thermal ablation of soft tissue other than cardiac tissue and is typically used for ablation of liver, lung and kidney tissue. Its exclusive “mini-choke” technology provides optimum control of the microwave field within the ablation target.
AMICA™ Probe Features:
Patented device for reflected microwave entrapment (mini-choke): no back heating effects, enhanced control over the coagulation shape and size
Internal water cooling to avoid shaft overheating
Sharp trocar point for easy penetration into tissues
Embedded memory chip for probe identification
AMICA™ Generator Features:
Microwave output: up to 140 W continuous wave at 2.4 GHz
Constant monitoring of microwave delivery: continuous measurement of forward and reflected microwave power, automatic microwave inhibition in case of alarms or errors, self-diagnosis of microwave module
Essential and intuitive user interface: LCD touchscreen for browsing through menus
Automatic peristaltic pump for probe cooling: integrated in the generator
Portable and compact: light (12 kg) and small (45 cm x 38 cm x 13 cm)
