"I am writing to express my appreciation of the minimally invasive biopsy devices your company provides. I have been a fan of the Spirabrush since it first came out, preferring it over the traditional punch biopsy for most patient scenarios as it is much gentler and atraumatic. Patients are visibly relieved when they see the brush device, instead of a frightening biopsy tool. It also lessens the time to perform the exam because 5 minutes aren’t wasted trying to control bleeding.
Most importantly, it provides abundant tissue of the entire TZone, which improves accuracy of diagnosis. The recent breakthrough with the Soft biopsy fabric devices add even more options to tailor sampling for specific cervical morphology and SCJ location. The soft ECC is a superior endocervical sampler, with the smaller size very helpful in sampling nullips. I recently picked up an invasive cancer in a young woman with the soft ECC tool.
I love all the options we now have to make colposcopy a gentler, less traumatic exam while providing optimal tissue for accurate diagnosis!"
