Indicated to collect tissue samples from the bronchi and/or upper and lower gastrointestinal tracts for the diagnosis of suspected pathology in the airway.
Tube within a tube design. The outer tube has a water soluble glycol plug in the distal end to protect the inner lumen brush from contamination as it travels through the endoscope channel. When the sample site is reached; the forward motion of the inner tube safely expels the plug; and deploys the brush. After sample collection; the brush is retracted into the outer tube; and removed from the scope channel.
Fits down 2.0mm endoscopic channel.
Sheathed catheter with plug for sample protection is 1.8mm x 180cm.
10mm bristled brush with outside diameter of 2mm and radiopaque distal end cap.
Handle with ring provides easy deployment and retraction of brush.
