Caesar Disposable Biopsy System

Disposable fully automatic spring loaded “guillotine” style biopsy system for histological biopsy on soft tissue. It has been designed to obtain abundant histological samples with a simple, quick and minimally traumatic procedure. User friendly, lightweight, compact and provided with a strong mechanism: it is therefore more reliable in cutting the most compact tissue. Provided with 2 triggers; one in the front and one in the back to facilitate operations in every positions. Safety: the safety switch is automatically activated when loading the gun. Centimetre markings facilitate precise depth placement. The tip is treated to make it echogenic and facilitate its positioning under ultrasound guidance. Colour coded for easy diameter identification. Available in a wide range of sizes. The stylet’s cavity is designed to collect the core sample without any damage (lacerations or tearing) and is reinforced to avoid bending. The sharp bevelled tip allows a smooth and quick penetration of the tissue. One hand operation: the gun can be loaded with one hand, leaving the other one free to use an ultrasound guide. The loading procedure is very easy since it doesn’t require much strength and can be activated just with the thumb. Can be used with an introducer needle to provide a coaxial approach to the biopsy site. It is ideal to be used in urology, nephrology, surgery, as well as with CT and ultrasound guidance.

For proven protection from pneumothorax
The BioSentry™ tract sealant system is the first biopsy sealant system of its kind designed specifically to address the issues of biopsy-related pneumothorax. The BioSentry™ tract sealant system deploys a self-expanding hydrogel plug into the pleural space following a percutaneous lung biopsy – creating an airtight seal that closes the pleural puncture.

Remember to order
BioSentry™ System requires a 19G co-axial introducer needle.
The M•Biopsy™ 19G Co-axial Introducer Needle mates perfectly with the BioSentry™ System as well as our M•Biopsy™ Semi-Automatic Biopsy Instrument.
The M•Biopsy™ 19G Co-axial Introducer Needle is sold separately.

BioSentry™ is the first biopsy sealant system of its kind.
• Deploys a self-expanding hydrogel plug into the pleural space following a percutaneous lung biopsy – creating an airtight seal that closes the pleural puncture.

BioSentry™ has been proven to protect against biopsy related pneumothorax.
• 84% of BioSentry™ patients were pneumothorax-free in the protocol population
• >50% relative risk reduction in the incidence of pneumothorax versus standard of care

BioSentry™ has been proven to stop the pneumothorax cascade in its tracks.
• 67% relative risk reduction in chest tube placement
• 45% relative risk reduction in the need for additional radiographs
• 31% relative risk reduction in hospital admissions

Features: BioSentry™ Delivery Device

– Depth markings in 2 mm increments provide accurate and consistent placement based on CT-guided measurements*
– Depth adjustment wheel and locking mechanism ensure proper plug deployment

* Do not use this device if the skin to pleura distance of the biopsy path is less than 1 cm exceeds 7 cm

Features: BioSentry™ Co-Axial Adapter

– Plug is made from a synthetic fully resorbable polymer to facilitate absorption and minimize tissue trauma
– Adapter mates with our 19G co-axial introducer needle
(sold separately) to ensure proper fit and delivery of plug
– Only one plug is delivered per tract

BiopSafe – Buffered formalin solution

With BiopSafe there are no difficult formalin bags and wall holders that often leads to formalin waste. The 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.

With BiopSafe the handling is done in a hermetically sealed system providing the best protection for the staff. No exposure to formalin through touch or inhalation, not even during the process of on and off screwing the lid.

Features

• No exposure to formalin
• Easy to use vial container
• Always at hand – ready to use
• Comes in 20ml and 60ml
