Biopsies are a vital medical test to ensure a patient is properly diagnosed. These common medical tests involve the extraction of sample cells or tissues for examination in order for a medical professional to determine the presence or extent in which a disease is present.
Endoscopic biopsies in particular are performed by inserting a fiberoptic endoscope through a natural body orifice or a small incision to view the organ in question for abnormal or suspicious areas and to obtain a small amount of tissue for study.
Doctors can insert the endoscope into the gastrointestinal tract, bladder, abdominal cavity, joint cavity, mid-portion of the chest, or trachea and bronchial system and can use their findings to determine the proper diagnosis before starting their patients on a treatment plan to help begin the healing process.
At MFI Medical we know just how important biopsies can be in making sure a patient makes a full recovery. That’s why we offer a full line of endoscopic biopsy supplies like biopsy forceps and gastrointestinal cytology brushes to ensure physicians can perform these procedures to the best of their ability.
When it comes to endoscopic biopsies, forceps can be used to enter the gastrointestinal tract via a flexible endoscope to obtain tissue samples in order to understand disease pathology.
Gastrointestinal Cytology Brushes
Gastrointestinal cytology brushes are used specifically to collect cell samples from the bronchi and upper and lower gastrointestinal tracts.
Available in either an oval cup or an alligator cup configuration, ConMed Precisor EXL Jumbo Disposable Forceps with needle are specially designed to cut rather than tear tissue. They have a large jaw sample capacity, with optimal cutting force as the jaws close, and help maintain channel integrity. The short jaw cup length makes for enhanced pushability. Precisor EXL forceps sport a three ring handle design that provides optimal control and tactile feel making them extremely easy to use.
ConMed OptiBite Disposable Biopsy Forceps are disposable and sterile biopsy forceps. The thumb ring handle provides better clinician handling. The low friction and reinforced sheath provides optimal pushability while also protecting against kinking. Color coded caps on the forceps distinguish jaw with and without needles.

These disposable forceps feature CAM design technology which allows for large jaw sample capacity and precision cutting action.
