Maxcore Bard Biopsy Gun/Needle

A biopsy gun or biopsy needle is a medical device used to obtain tissue samples from a patient for diagnostic purposes. It is commonly used in various medical specialties, including oncology, radiology, and gastroenterology, to help diagnose and stage diseases such as cancer.



Here’s a general description of a biopsy gun/needle:

  1. Design: Biopsy guns/needles are typically designed as slender, hollow tubes with a sharp cutting tip. They come in various sizes and configurations depending on the specific medical procedure they are used for.
  2. Trigger Mechanism: Biopsy guns often have a trigger mechanism that allows the healthcare professional to control the firing of the cutting mechanism to obtain the tissue sample.
  3. Core Biopsy: Many biopsy guns are “core biopsy” devices, meaning they can obtain a cylindrical core of tissue from the target site. This core sample provides a more extensive and accurate representation of the tissue than fine-needle aspiration (FNA) needles.
  4. Imaging Guidance: Biopsy guns are commonly used with imaging guidance, such as ultrasound, CT scan, or fluoroscopy, to precisely target the area of interest and avoid damage to surrounding structures.
  5. Safety Features: Some biopsy guns/needles come with safety features, such as safety caps or retractable needles, to reduce the risk of accidental needlestick injuries to healthcare professionals.
  6. Disposable or Reusable: Biopsy guns/needles may be designed for single-use (disposable) or multiple uses (reusable) depending on the manufacturer’s specifications and medical facility’s practices.
  7. Sample Collection: Biopsy guns/needles are used to collect tissue samples from various locations in the body, including the breast, liver, prostate, lung, and other organs or structures.
