BiopSafe Container is Now Available in 60 ml


In addition to the 20ml container the BiopSafe buffered formalin solution is now available in a 60ml container. The new 60ml container is useful for storage of larger tissue in a safe way and can contain up to four standard cassettes. Together with the 20ml container, it will provide a complete formalin fixation solution that is safe and easy to work with. The 60ml container comes in transportation boxes of 72 pieces.

The BiopSafe system consists of a small, easy to use container (vial) with a 4 % formaldehyde solution capsuled in the lid. You screw the lid on and apply pressure with your thumb, allowing the formalin to flow out and cover the biopsy. Everything is done inside the container and no formalin is released in either liquid or vapor form.

Mermaid Medical is the exclusive distributor in Sweden, Norway and Finland. Please contact your local representative for more information.

Introducing Cassi® Star Breast Tissue Marker


The Cassi Star Breast Tissue Marker has been developed for enhanced ultrasound visibility. Its star shape, with eight deep cut edges, secures bright reflection of ultrasound waves and is easily distinguished from other breast tissue markers under mammographic imaging.

The Cassi Star Breast Tissue Marker is made of Polyetherketoneketone (PEKK) Polymers which are used routinely in surgical implants and dental devices. PEKK provides permanent visibility in all imaging modalities and does not have additional materials that can cause the marker to expand or change form over time.
