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.
  • Aspirate and flush in same procedure
    With the Double Lumen Follicle Aspiration Set the oocyte may be aspirated while the follicle is flushed in one and the same procedure. The tubing fitted on the needle allows aspiration of the follicular fluid into a tube, via the inner lumen. The luer connection at the side of the needle hub allows flushing of sterile medium through the outer lumen up to the follicle, which can then be aspirated again. The set includes the needle, tubings to the sampling tube, side connection and aspiration pump tubing.
