The Spirotome is the main product to acquire high-quality soft tissues for engineering and liquid phase analysis. The ready-to-use kit contains a trocar, receiving needle with helix, cutting cannula, and release element. The kit is offered sterile, single-use.
In general, the mounted trocar and cutting cannula is positioned in front of the target. The trocar is replaced by the receiving needle with the helix and is turned clock-wise to enter the target up to the distance needed with a maximum penetration of 20 mm. Then the sample is cut from the surroundings by turning the cutting cannula clockwise over the helix until the distal ends meet. The receiving needle can now be retracted. The sample is removed by the release element. After that, the cutting cannula can be removed or used as a starting point for the next biopsy.
