Hot biopsy forceps are used to excise small polyps (up to a size of 5 mm) in the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract using high frequency current. Olympus provides two different single-use hot biopsy forceps which offer comprehensive features: Double step blade ensures sharp cutting performance to retrieve clean specimens. Optimum sheath flexibility ensures smooth insertion into the endoscope channel and minimized damage to the channel interior. The EndoJaw's swing jaw mechanism facilitates the positioning of the forceps cups at biopsy sites and allows for tangential approaches.Brochure
