The Basic Bone Biopsy System

The everyday ‘go to’ system, intended for straightforward, basic bone biopsy procedures or superficial bone lesions.

System Components

The trocar-tip stylet and tapered-tip cannula introducer features a depth-gauge stopper and centimeter markings. As with all the Merit Bone Biopsy Systems, the Westbrook? System contains the Preston? Bone Biopsy Needle, designed for either incremental sampling for blastic lesions or with optional syringe aspiration.

  • Trocar-tip stylet/tapered-tip cannula introducer
  • Clockwise trephine-tip biopsy needle
  • Ejector pin
Westbrook Basic Bone Biopsy System

The Westbrook? Bone Biopsy System is our standard, entry-level bone biopsy system. It is designed for accessing superficial lesions in soft or normal-density bone, where it is unnecessary to traverse bone before sampling. Its features include:

  • Direct access and comfortable handling
  • Fast and efficient penetration of normal-density bone
  • High-grade steel for outstanding durability
  • Preston? Bone Biopsy Needle for multiple, optimized lesion sampling

The Westbrook? System is available in 11G in two lengths.

Introduction Method

Using a direct approach, the introducer is advanced through soft tissue and anchored into bone.

If crossing dense cortex is required, a Preston? Hard Bone Introducer (supplied as a separate accessory) may be additionally used after placing the introducer needle.
