Pipelle de Cornier® Mark II (The patented reference)
Now Available through NHS Supply Chain
The original and still the best for Endometrial sampling for cytology and histology and the only device that provides samples for both histology and cytology in one single procedure.
A special roughened surface treatment on the tip of the Pipelle® Mark II helps collect endometrial cells for smear cytology.
The body and the plunger of the device, identical to the original Pipelle®, are used for the histology specimen.
The sampling technique is identical to that used with the original Pipelle®.
To retrieve the collected samples:
1. Cut the rough tip and place it into a vial containing a solution for liquid-based cytology,
2. Push the plunger to expel the tissue specimen in a vial for histology
Pipelle de Cornier® (The gold standard. The genuine device)
As the first disposable device for outpatient endometrial aspiration in cancer screening, the Pipelle® has become the reference in endometrium cancer screening.
Sampling with the Pipelle® is extremely well tolerated by patients, and causes little to no bleeding. It bends easily to follow the curves of the cervix and the uterus, and to remain in contact with the uterine wall.
Over 200 publications worldwide attest to its reliability, effectiveness and safety.
Pipelle® H (Histological sampling during hysteroscopy)
Developed in collaboration with Dr. Adam Magos at the Royal Free Hospital of London. Based on the original Pipelle® device, the Pipelle® H optimizes endometrium sampling when performing a diagnostic hysteroscopy.
Owing to its length (50 cm), the Pipelle® H produces enough suction to collect a large volume of endometrial tissue, despite the presence of the distension medium, and without having to repeat the procedure several times.
Once the hysteroscopic examination of the uterine cavity is finished, the Pipelle® H is fed through the hysteroscope’s diagnostic sheath, instead of the optic, up to the uterine fundus. A biopsy is then taken in the usual fashion.
