Mini Tischler Biopsy Punch 2.3mm x 4.2mm Bite – Each Sold Separately
Trans Africa Medicals’s® Mini Tischler Biopsy Punch Forceps are an OB/GYN instrument most commonly used in colposcopy procedures to obtain cervical tissue samples for biopsy. This product is straight with an 8 inch shaft and 2.3mm x 4.2mm semi elliptical bite. The mini Tischler bite is slightly smaller than a standard Tischler bite and takes a smaller tissue sample. The mini or baby style biopsy punch is often preferred because there is typically less bleeding and pain when the smaller tissue sample is removed. It features a single, lower tooth used to grasp difficult to reach tissue and a locking mechansim above the horn on the handle so the jaws can lock the tissue sample into place while the instrument is removed from the cervical canal. This reduces the risk of losing the tissue sample as the instrument is withdrawn. This product has a pistol style handle with one large ring for multiple fingers.
