Sterile pigments for medical use

These safe pigments are replacing traditional products for endoscopic and integumentary tumour marking.

Why should India ink no longer be used for radiation therapy markings?

  • Ink contains impurities,
  • Its composition is unknown (ingredients must be known, even for artistic tattooing),
  • It is not biocompatible,
  • It has not been approved for medical use,
  • It is neither sterile, nor single-use, as required by law,
  • The markings are permanent and turn blue.

BIOTIC Phocea’s pigments are offered in different packagings and different colours (white, black and green).
