Endopipet
For superior accuracy and a more reliable sample.
A unique, sterile, disposable curette for sampling the uterine endometrium. 
Efficient. Convenient. Reliable.

Application

    Utilized for sampling of endometrial tissue, the unique design of the IOB Endopipet allows for superior accuracy and a more reliable sample than traditional endometrial sample devices. This convenient, easy-to-use device utilizes a semi-rigid 3mm cannula and syringe locking mechanism to give a superior biopsy sample every time.

IOB Endopipet is designed to obtain clearly differentiated endometrial tissue without anesthesia,
in an outpatient setting or as an office procedure. 
This device is designed to improve the efficiency, conve- nience and reliability of the endometrial tissue collection and to reduce the physical discomfort of the patient. It provides liberal histologic specimens, surgical ease and is procedurally cost-effective for routine use. 
IOB Endopipet is recommended for both pre- and post- menopausal women for diagnostic purposes.

Features
  • Convenient for routine gynecological use and suit- able for cytologic and histologic diagnosis 
  • Facilitates both endometrial scraping and aspiration 
  • Avoids endometrial sample contamination 
  • Semi-rigid 3mm curette minimizes possibility of per- foration 
  • Curette conveniently bent with sharp slot on side as- sures better sampling from all areas of the endome- trial cavity 
  • Backflow of collected sample is prevented by lock- spring mechanism on syringe 
Directions for Use
1.Prepare vaginal area and cervix for a sterile intrauterine procedure.
2.With a vaginal speculum in place, carefully sound uterine cavity. To straighten cervical canal for sound to be insert- ed, tenaculum is always needed. 
3.Gently insert curette. If cervical canal is very dry, apply a small amount of sterile water-soluble gel to tip of curette. 
4.Attach syringe to base of curette. 
5.Withdraw piston to create vacuum in curette. 
6.Use long strokes to obtain sample from all four quad- rants of the endometrium. If the syringe fills with tissue and needs additional vacuum, disconnect syringe leaving curette in place. Unlock spring mechanism and empty contents in fixative. Re-attach syringe to curette and continue. 
7.When curettage is completed, withdraw curette from uterus and expel tissue into container. 
8.Draw fixative into curette and syringe and flush into container to wash out any tissue that may be lodged in curette. 
9.Allow patient to remain recumbent for about 10 minutes. 
Precautions
  • Curettage should be performed with care to avoid perforation of the uterus. 
  • Any cervical manipulation may cause a reaction. Patient should be watched for unusual weakness or nausea. 
  • Uterine cramping may occur. If con- tinued cramping occurs, patient should contact her physician. 
Contraindications
Curettage should not be performed on:
- Patients with or recently recovered from pelvic inflammatory disease.
- Patients where pregnancy is suspected.
