    The SOMATEX® semi-automatic Biopsy Handy was specifically developed for single and multiple sampling of tissue specimens from soft tissue and organs. Its minimal weight enables precise, target/specific use with convenient one-handed operation. The retrieved tissue material is used for histological examination.

    Cannula and metal stylet:
    The Biopsy Handy consists of a very sharp metal stylet with a 20 mm biopsy chamber and an equally sharp-grounded outer cannula. During the biopsy and after triggering of the system, the soft tissue material is severed by an extremely rapid forward movement of the outer cannula.

    The cannula is extremely sharp due to its faceted grinding and is therefore particularly atraumatic for patients during tissue puncture. The echogenic needlepoint ensures optimum visibility with ultrasound. Additional cm markings on the cannula shaft allow for precise depth orientation during the procedure.

    The ABS (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer) plastic handle makes the semi-automatic biopsy system particularly lightweight and enables comfortable operation with one hand.

    Multiple tissue sampling:
    Optionally, a coaxial puncture sheath is available for the Biopsy Handy, which enables multiple tissue sampling with the same instrument.

    The Biopsy Handy is also available as a MRI-compatible system.
