Guide rod access to MINIMIZE DAMAGE to surrounding tissues
UNIQUE PERFORATING CANNULA and hard bone drilling technology
CONTROL AND PRECISION while traversing dense bone
- Ergonomic Handles
Including removable options, the handles lock together, allowing for a comfortable grip if manual assertion is necessary.
- Depth Markers
Clear centimeter markings and depth stoppers give a visual guide for biopsy protrusion beyond introducer.
- Ejector Pin
Specimens are ejected from the proximal (luer) end and out the distal end, for ease and specimen preservation.
Helps to minimize damage to surrounding bone & tissue
Clockwise Biopsy Needle
Features clockwise-cutting trephine teeth to optimise diagnostic yield
The guide rod is anchored into the cortex, and the perforating cannula is placed over the rod and rotated counterclockwise through soft tissue. To penetrate dense cortex, a drill replaces the rod and locks together with the perforating cannula.
NOTE: As with all the Merit Bone Biopsy Systems, the Bedford System contains the Preston™ Bone Biopsy Needle, designed for either incremental sampling for blastic lesions or with optimal syringe aspiration.
