CoreDish for Prostate Biopsies
Few recommendations concerning how the biopsies should be handled have been published. Performing a large number of biopsies means an increase in the number of containers handled and consequently a technical overload of the transmission network, which occurs without any financial counterpart. A new approach had to be developed in order to increase productivity.
Simport is proud to offer a multi-compartment container for prostate biopsies. The CoreDish is in the shape of a dish measuring only 15 mm high x 95 mm diameter and is half prefilled with 10% Neutral Buffered Formalin. The screw on lid incorporates an O-ring in order to make it leakproof and protect its contents. The CoreDish conforms to OSHA directives. An area for patient information is provided on the label. Each compartment is clearly identified to allow proper placement and visualization of the prostate biopsy being inserted. Out of eight compartments, six are labeled: Base, Lateral Base, Medial, Lateral Medial, Apex, Lateral Apex.
Thanks to the CoreDish it is no more necessary to use a multitude of individual containers, thereby reducing risks of confusion.
