Eckert & Ziegler BEBIG´s core business is the production and distribution of medical products for the treatment of cancer using brachytherapy. Brachytherapy is a form of radiotherapy that treats cancer by irradiation from a short distance. Two different forms of brachytherapy are used: permanent and temporary brachytherapy. In permanent brachytherapy, a small radioactive source is implanted in the body, while in temporary brachytherapy, the radioactive source is placed directly inside or close to the site of the tumor for a limited and defined period.
Eckert & Ziegler BEBIG offers a complete portfolio of brachytherapy products, which comprises HDR afterloaders, permanent prostate implants, so called seeds, in a loose and stranded form, implants for the permanent or temporary treatment of brain tumors as well as ophthalmic applicators for the treatment of eye tumors.
Besides our dedicated brachytherapy products, Eckert & Ziegler BEBIG offers a comprehensive portfolio of radiation therapy accessories and medical devices for X-ray therapy.
