SoftBiopsy® Gynecological Biopsy Device
SoftBiopsy® is the NEW simple and gentle approach to perform a cervical or lower genital tract biopsy.
During clinical settings such as colposcopy, a biopsy of the exocervix or lower genital tract may be indicated. If there is a suspicion of neoplasia, the SoftBiopsy® device, with a patented fabric (KYLON®) on the round tip, can be used to collect tissue from the cervix as an alternative to other punch biopsy devices. This device is designed to provide abundant trans-epithelial histology samples. When carefully applied to the lesion, pressed, and rotated, the round flat platform tip (just under 1/2 inch in diameter) KYLON® fabric will excavate numerous full thickness tissue pieces like multiple small punch biopsies. The
SoftBIopsy®, microscopically lifts, removes, and simultaneously collects the specimen within the basket rows of hooks and fabric. The KYLON® pad and distal device head can be simply snapped from the handle after the biopsy and placed in the liquid fixative vial for transport tot the lab.
WHY USE THE SoftBiopsy® DEVICE?
- Ease of use: apply with moderate pressure to the cervical or vaginal lesion and rotate to gently biopsy
- No pinching or cutting tissue
- Minimally invasive design
- Abundant histological sample
- Process as is customary for exocervical biopsy sample in the laboratory
