Q Inside® Safety Technology is the world’s first microtransponder for clinical use in a breast implant. It is the only transponder with a CE mark (which indicates compliance with the health, safety, and environmental protection standards for products sold in the European Economic Area), and the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) cleared it for use in 2004. Qid® is placed in the gel filling inside Motiva Implants®.
A handheld reader is used to externally scan the transponder, providing an electronic serial number (ESN) that can be used to retrieve important implant information such as manufacturing date, implant type, volume, and more.
Qid® is an optional feature in Motiva Implants® that is particularly useful to patients and surgeons to identify the implant type after the surgery, and to verify implant details during the event of a product recall.
Product information or warranty on cards can be lost or misplaced. With its unique ESN permanently located within the breast implant, Qid® provides the confidence of instant implant traceability and verification.
