Steps for use
BioPince™ is designed for for ease of use. There is no new technique required.
1After appropriately preparing the biopsy site, the target area is located. Using standard technique, a BioPince™ Co-axial Introducer Needle is advanced to a position proximal to the lesion. The adjustable needle stop is positioned proximal to the skin.
2Remove the stylet from the Co-axial Introducer Needle, and the cannula is left in position.
3Activate the BLUE safety button on the side of the instrument. It will indicate the "SAFE" position.
4To cock the instrument, lift the cocking lever until a click is heard. Push the lever down until a second click is heard. A YELLOW indicator in the "READY" window indicates that it is cocked.
5The instrument is shipped in the 33mm position. If an adjustment to stroke length is desired, the instrument must first be cocked. To select the desired stroke length, lift the "ears" on both sides of the stroke length adjuster and move the adjuster to the appropriate position.
6The BioPince™ stylet is advanced to a position proximal to the lesion and the safety is released. The instrument is ready to "FIRE".
7Firmly press the RED firing trigger located at the proximal end of the instrument.
8The device is removed from the patient. Lifting the cocking lever and pushing it down, automatically expels the specimen. The instrument is now cocked for another specimen retrieval.
