Kanzius Project

Kanzius Cancer Fighting Radio Frequency Device & Industrial Sales and Manufacturing (ISM). It is always rewarding when you can be a part of something bigger than your company. That is certainly the case with ISM’s role in the Kanzius External Radio Frequency (RF) System; a revolutionary device that could one day wipeout certain cancer diagnosis.

The story has its start in 2002 when John Kanzius, a local radio and TV broadcaster was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. After undergoing round after round of debilitating chemotherapy treatments Kanzius could not stop thinking about his experience with radio waves and how they might be used to more effectively kill cancer cells. He knew from experience that radio-waves were apparently harmless to human tissue but could be used to heat metal to high temperatures. His idea involved finding a way to insert metal “nanoparticles” inside cancer cells then using radio frequency to destroy the cells. That is where Industrial Sales and Manufacturing came in.

In January 2009, Kanzius approached ISM about an issue he was having with his invention, then in its early stages of experimentation at MD Anderson Cancer Research Center. Soon ISM allocated plant space to establish a Kanzius RF Device lab where Kanzius personally worked hand-in-hand with the Rutkowski family from morning to night. Soon the device was getting national attention through a “60 Minutes” news story. People from across the country and across the world made the trip to ISM to see the potential of the Kanzius device.

John Kanzius died in 2009 from cancer. Today, his energy and can-do spirit lives on at ISM as progress on perfecting the device for human use continues and researchers at MD Anderson Cancer Center, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and the University of Pittsburgh Institute of Nano science and Engineering draw ever closer to testing the device on humans.
