About Neoprobe Corp.
Neoprobe Corporation, a biomedical company, engages in the development and commercialization of oncology products.
Gamma Detection Devices: The companys gamma detection systems are used by surgeons in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and related diseases. The companys patented gamma detection device systems consist of hand-held detector probes and a control unit.
The neoprobe GDS gamma detection system, released under the name neo2000, is the fourth generation of its gamma detection products. In 2009, the company also introduced a new gamma detection probe capable of detecting higher energy isotopes, such as Fludeoxyglucose 18F (FDG or F18) that are used in connection with Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans. Surgeons are using its gamma detection devices in a surgical application referred to as intraoperative lymphatic mapping (ILM or lymphatic mapping) or sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB). Surgeons have also been using its devices for other gamma-guided surgery applications, such as evaluating the thyroid function and conducting parathyroid surgery, and in determining the state of disease in patients with vulvar and penile cancers.
Lymphoseek: the company is developing Lymphoseek, a proprietary drug compound under worldwide license from the Regents of the University of California through their UC, San Diego affiliate (UCSD). The UCSD license grants Neoprobe the commercialization rights to Lymphoseek for diagnostic imaging and intraoperative detection applications.
RIGS: The RIGS system combines a patented hand-held gamma radiation detection probe, proprietary radiolabeled cancer-specific targeting agents, and patented surgical methods to provide surgeons with real-time information to locate tumor deposits not detectable by conventional methods. The RIGS system is designed to assist the surgeon in the removal of the cancer to improve surgical treatment of the patient. The targeting agents used in the RIGS process are monoclonal antibodies, labeled with a radioactive isotope that emits low energy gamma rays.
RIGScan CR is an intraoperative agent consisting of a radiolabeled murine monoclonal antibody (MAb CC49). The radiolabel used is 125I, a 27 35 KeV emitting isotope. The CC49 MAb is produced from a murine cell line generated by the fusion of splenic lymphocytes from mice immunized with tumor-associated glycoprotein-72 (TAG-72) with non-immunoglobulin secreting P3-NS-1-Ag4 myeloma cells. The CC49 MAb localizes or binds to TAG-72 antigen and shows a reactivity with both LS-174T colon cancer extract and to a breast cancer extract. The CC49 MAb localizes or binds to TAG-72 and shows a reactivity with both LS-174T colon cancer extract and to a breast cancer extract.
RIGScan CR is the biologic component for the RIGS system to be used in patients with colon or rectal cancer. RIGScan CR is intended to be used in conjunction with other diagnostic methods, for the detection of the extent and location of tumor in patients with colorectal cancer. RIGScan CR, used as a component of the RIGS system, confirms the location of surgically suspicious metastases, evaluates the margins of surgical resection, and detects occult tumor in perihepatic (portal and celiac axis) lymph nodes.
Activated Cellular Therapy (ACT)
The company, through various research collaborations, performed early-stage research on another technology platform, ACT, based on work originally done in conjunction with the RIGS technology. ACT is intended to improve the patients own immune system by removing lymph nodes identified during surgery and then, in a cell processing technique, activating and expanding helper T-cells found in the nodes.
The company has a subsidiary, Cira Biosciences, Inc., explores and develops ACT. Cira Bio has the development and commercialization rights to three issued the U.S. patents that cover the oncology and autoimmune applications of its technology. In addition, Cira Bio has licenses to various pending patent applications.
Marketing and Distribution
The company's gamma detection systems are marketed and distributed worldwide through Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc. (EES), a Johnson & Johnson company. In Japan, it markets its products through a pre-existing relationship with Century Medical, Inc. It has an agreement with Cardinal Health, Inc.s radiopharmaceutical distribution division (Cardinal Health) for the distribution of Lymphoseek in the United States.
In 2009, the company discontinued the operations of its blood flow measurement device product line.
On June 21, 2010, Phylogeny, Inc. and Neoprobe Corp. have collaborated to develop head and neck cancer detection technology. Neoprobe is in Phase III clinical trials to determine the efficacy of Lymphoseek's ability to improve cancer detection and outcome of patients with head and neck tumors. Lymphoseek is a proprietary radiopharmaceutical, which enables improved medical imaging of cancer cells within the lymphatic system.
Gamma Detection Devices: The company competes with products produced and marketed by Care Wise Medical Products Corporation; Intra-Medical Imaging LLC; RMD Instruments LLC (a subsidiary of Dynasil Corporation); SenoRx; and Eurorad S.A.
Neoprobe Corporation was founded in 1983.

Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
