CIVCO’s Ultra-Pro II Needle Guide Reduces Risk of Cross-Contamination

June 8, 2009 – CIVCO Medical Solutions announces needle guidance compatibility with GE Healthcare’s new 3Sp and 5Sp transducers. CIVCO’s Ultra-Pro II needle guidance system utilizes a two-part system consisting of a custom reusable biopsy bracket and a disposable snap-on needle guide. The single-use design of the needle guide reduces the risk of cross-contamination. Together, these tools offer physicians reduced technique variability, a shorter learning curve and reduced procedure time. The Ultra-Pro II needle guidance system is designed to increase the productivity of ultrasound-guided procedures including tissue biopsy, fluid aspirations, catheter placement and regional anesthesia. In addition, multi-angle brackets offer professionals several needle paths to reach the targeted anatomy during puncture procedures.

The Ultra-Pro II needle guide snaps securely onto the multi-angle bracket incorporating more flexibility and advanced features to increase productivity during ultrasound-guided procedures. The needle guide directs instruments according to on-screen software guidelines and holds the needle as it is advanced, providing a smooth insertion, while allowing you to see what you puncture. The Ultra-Pro II also features a larger tab for simple quick-release function, allowing easy detachment of the needle from transducer. Easy-to-read gauge sizes on the inserts make it simple to identify and alter gauge sizes in a darkened ultrasound suite. The guide also features a larger funnel for instrument insertion and will accept a full range of sizes including: 8.5FR, 14-23GA (19GA not available).
