Devicor® Medical Products, Inc. (Devicor), a portfolio company of GTCR,
a leading private equity firm, and Faxitron® Bioptics, LLC are pleased

increases the accuracy of breast cancer detection while facilitating
more efficient clinical practice," said Devicor CEO Tom Daulton.
"Faxitron's CoreVision® is perfectly aligned with our mission, and is
highly complementary with our current products, including Mammotome
revolve® and the Mammotome MammoTestTM stereotactic biopsy
