Product facts and notices


  • The FAS has got a very sharp, lanceaolate sharpened needle-tip, facilitating a precise puncturing or cutting.
  • The echoic needle-tip is produced with a new technique by use of a laser; that means the needle-tip is free of grinding-dust. The tip provides a steady and excellent visibility within the picture of the ultrasound.
  • If requested we produce ultrasound markings following an innovative beam technology (embossed).
  • Different dimensions of the needle concerning length, outer and inner diameter allow it to individually adept them to diagnostical and therapeutical goals.
  • Translucent tubings having the same inner diameter as the needle ensure a reliable and unobstructed flow of the oocytes.
  • A marking on the grip shows the physician the position of the opening of the sharpened tip of the single-lumen needle during puncturing.
  • If requested we enclose sterile ultrasound-covers for transducers. These FAS are labelled with an additional “-U” after the order number.
