TeesuVac develops an efficient biopsy gun for taking precise breast and prostate sample tissue in connection with cancer testing.
The new biopsy gun will make it easier and faster for hospital staff to take precise breast and prostate sample tissue in connection with cancer testing. TeesuVac's biopsy gun differs from other devices on the market by being a hand-held disposable pistol entailing that no resources are used on cleaning. This eliminates the risk of transferring bacteria between patients.
In addition, the biopsy gun is vacuum-assisted, meaning that it uses vacuum to transport the tissue into a tissue-receiving chamber before being cut off. This results in samples that are verifiably larger. Unlike with most other biopsy devices, vacuum is generated in the gun itself, which means that it does not have to be attached to another unhandy device.
The gun also presents the advantage of taking multiple samples in just one insertion. Therefore, it is far less inconvenient for the patients when the health care staff take out tissue samples, as the TeesuVac requires much fewer insertions than current biopsy instruments.
