FEATURED PRODUCT

ACHIEVE MORE WITH EUS

Three interchangeable needles — the FNA, FNB, and FNF — allow for predictable biliary access, fine needle aspiration, fine needle biopsy, fiducial placement and improved procedural workflow in one procedure. 1-8

  • The six distal cutting edges of the SharkCore™ FNB needle are specifically designed to obtain cohesive units of tissue with intact cell architecture.9-11
  • The Beacon™ FNA needle, an interchangeable component of the Beacon™ EUS delivery system, is designed to improve tissue yield.1,12-13
  • The Beacon™  FNF  needle, pre-loaded with two solid gold markers, helps simplify the procedure, and reduces overall procedure time.14

PRESERVE THEIR FUTURE

Successful management of non-resectable liver tumors is about more than what you remove — it’s about what you leave behind, too.

The Emprint™ ablation system supports your journey from careful planning to predictable success when treating small to medium sized liver malignancies alone or with surgery. It enables a minimally invasive procedure with:

  • Few side-effects15
  • Fast recovery time16

This technology demonstrates controllable and
predictable ablation zones and single digit local recurrence
rates clinically.15,17-19
