Cytology, cell block or core: results you can see.


Incorporating extensive feedback provided by clinicians, we now offer you our latest developments in needle flexibility and sampling capability, tailored to you and your pathologist’s needs and heavily supported by published study data. The EchoTip Ultra and EchoTip ProCore needles are designed specifically to enhance target access and tissue acquisition.

EUS-results-you-can-see

By balancing sample size and needle flexibility, we give you the tools to accurately target small lesions in even the most hard to reach locations, while increasing valuable yields with potentially fewer needle passes.¹

cell-block-and-coreObtain core biopsies even in the most difficult anatomical positions.

The ProCore 20 gauge has the flexibility to get you where you need to go, including those hard-to-reach targets. This tractability also means there is no need to straighten the scope when advancing the needle through the channel. Once you puncture the target lesion, you have the capacity to acquire pathology from a relatively large sample.

The ReCoil Stylet, helps you to easily manage the stylet, potentially minimizing the risk of contamination.

cytology-2The easiest path to difficult locations.

Thanks to its highly flexible coiled sheath, the EchoTip Ultra 22 gauge gets you to difficult positions for sampling lesions. Even in torqued positions, you can acquire quality samples with the longtime best-selling EUS needle on the market.

Small needle. Big results.

Our smallest, flexible EchoTip ProCore, it is a perfect everyday needle that balances cytology and histology acquisition to obtain a cell block sample. The dependability of the ProCore 25 gauge is reflected in numerous studies showing excellent first-pass diagnoses in malignant tumors.¹
