Smaller gauge needles are becoming the trend for oocyte pick-up as they reduce pain, bleeding and trauma to the patient. But there are other aspects that should be taken into consideration to ensure a successful procedure without damage to the oocytes.

Kitazato’s thin wall design provides a wider inner diameter with the same outer diameter when compared to other brands, this allows oocyte retrieval to be performed with a smaller gauge needle.

Kitazato’s OPU Needles are also developed with a uniform inner diameter which guarantees a continuous aspiration flow, constant pressure and speed. The result is less stress for the oocyte by removing any abrupt change in pressure.

The high-quality steel and original triple cut blade of Kitazato needles decrease the risk of injuries to the uterine lining, minimize pain and improve patient recovery after the ovarian puncture.
