Prevent Possible Cross-infection from Biopsy Forceps Usage

Biopsy forceps are essential tools for endoscopic examination and pathology sampling. The tip of the forceps is primarily composed of two cup-shaped pincers that can be opened and closed. The shape of the pincers varies, and so does their function. They can be classified as crocodile mouth, needle-bearing, single-open, double-open, tip-curved, ellipse-shaped, or window-bearing.

The unique features of disposable biopsy forceps

  • Rigid clamp head with a special steel wire connecting rod structure for excellent mechanical function.

  • A clear upper and lower fulcrum with a moderate travel distance for a comfortable grip and easy sample collection.

  • The blade is sharp with appropriate size for a high positive detection rate and full sampling.

  • The clamp head can pass through a 210-degree curved channel, and the clamp head can open and close normally around the tube by circling it twice.

  • The outer surface is coated with an ultra-smooth plastic coating to effectively reduce damage to the endoscopic channel.

  • Low-priced and suitable for extensive promotion and use. Products Introduction: During gastroscopy biopsy collection, biopsy forceps enter the digestive tract to retrieve mucosal tissue and come into direct contact with blood. If they are not thoroughly disinfected, there is a potential risk of cross-infection, increasing the likelihood of patients contracting infectious diseases such as Hepatitis B.

Avoid cross-infection with disposable biopsy forceps

In recent years, the equipment and personnel for endoscopic examination and treatment have been increasingly popular, and hospital infections have received increasing attention. Therefore, disinfection and sterilization of the endoscope and its accessories are increasingly essential. Effective disinfection and sterilization of accessories are necessary to prevent cross-infection in hospitals. The pincers of biopsy forceps are mainly made of stainless steel, and the cutting edge of the biopsy forceps is sharper than that of disposable biopsy forceps. Although the cutting edge of the disposable biopsy forceps is sharp, its wear resistance is relatively poor. The re-used biopsy forceps blades underwent special surface treatment to become more durable.

The clamp body of biopsy forceps is composed of a stainless steel threaded pipe, and the internal structure of the biopsy forceps contains a steel wire that controls the opening and closing of the clamp head. The ring on the operating handle of the biopsy forceps is designed to fit the thumb, and the wide groove is where the index finger and middle finger are placed. The force is delivered to the clamp head by pulling the steel wire under the control of these three fingers when the forceps are opened or closed.

The use of biopsy forceps instruments mainly depends on selecting the appropriate diameter and length of sampling forceps according to the endoscope used. Under the supervision of the endoscope, the sampling forceps enter through the endoscope's channel opening and are accurately positioned. By pushing forward the plastic handle's sliding loop (to open the clamp), the sampling is taken by pressing the sampling tissue against it, and then, by pulling the sliding loop back (to close the clamp), the sample collection is completed. The soft tube is pulled backward to remove the sampling forceps. When encountering slippery tissues, biopsy forceps with needles are recommended. Biopsy forceps are endoscopic attachments that operate directly on mucosal tissues of the body and must meet sterilization standards. To avoid incomplete disinfection or cross-infection of the biopsy forceps, it is recommended to use disposable biopsy forceps.
