The shape of the tip makes the difference
All needles used for oocyte retrieval have the mission to collect the maximum amount of undamaged oocytes in a short time as possible. One important feature in accomplishing this mission is the tip of the needle and its design.
In order to penetrate the tissue with a little damage as possible, the needle tip needs to be sharp and precise. A comparison between needles showed that the shape of the needle tip made a big difference in penetration resistance.
- Maximised control and precision for improved performance
All needles, including the handle and side connections, are made of surgical grade stainless steel. The MediSteel™ PrecisionGrip™ is purpose designed to optimise aspirative orientation and control. The handle has a marking for bevel point indication.
- Ultra sharp design for low penetration resistance and exact precision
The V-Tip™ is designed to meet your needs by providing extraordinary sharpness, exact precision and the utmost safety. It has a bevel grinding of 15 degrees for low resistance penetration and distinctive backpoint grinding to prevent deviation.
- Ultra-sound wash and steam sterilisation for increased safety
To ensure smooth internal and external surfaces and a burr-free needle tip, all our needles undergo an extensive washing process and surface treatment.
- Double sterile pack to meet surgical standards
Each needle is individually packaged in a double sterile barrier to avoid contamination in the surgical theatre.
- Friction-free tubing for easier handling and confidence in use
To create a convenient, kink-free environment and to prevent any oocyte damage, the aspiration tubing and the flushing tubing are made of a friction-free Teflon.
- Supplied with blunt cannula
The tubing fitted on the needle allows aspiration of the follicular fluid into a sampling tube. The single lumen needle is supplied with a blunt cannula for flushing of the follicle if desired. The set includes the needle, tubing to the collection vial and tubing to the aspiration pump.
