Coaxial needle

Safe & effective needle placement for hard-to-reach targets

Gangi-SoftGuard® combines the well-known technique of a coaxial biopsy needle with an all new spring loaded blunt tip stylet providing more control during soft tissue biopsy.

The spring loaded blunt tip stylet:

  • Enables penetration without removal of the blunt needle
  • Provides visual and tactile feedback

Blunt tip:

  • Coaxial blunt tip stylet helps reduce the risk of damage to vasculature or other organs

Coaxial biopsy needle:

  • Provides the ability to cut through tissue
  • Centimeter markings on needle for easy depth evaluation
  • Echogenic marking on cannula allow for precise ultrasound placement

Available in selected markets only. Not available in the USA.
