Kylon® Hooked-Fabric Biopsy Technology
Histologics LLC is proud to have developed Soft-ECC® endocervical curette, and the SoftBiopsy® exocervical gynecological biopsy device. Both devices employ a multipatented hooked fabric (Kylon®) that simultaneously biopsies with frictional raking/de-bonding of epithelium from stroma, and traps and stores the tissue for transport to the lab.
The Soft-ECC® and SoftBiopsy® were developed with the patient care experience in mind. The Soft-ECC® design is intended to fit into most endocervical canals and yield an abundant biopsy sample. The ECC procedure is usually performed to remove tissue from the endocervical canal for histological analysis during colposcopy or during the diagnostic work-up of abnormal peri-menopausal or menopausal bleeding. Unlike cytobrush sampling which is a cytologic screening modality, Soft-ECC curettage produces diagnostic histological samples.
