Product facts and notices


  • With flushing, a better harvesting of oocytes is ensured especially with mono- or oligo-follicular ovaries. The flushing-lumen especially developed in cooperation of GYNEMED and the manufacturer Gynetics satisfies these highest requirements.
  • 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.
  • Translucent tubings having the same inner diameter as the needle ensure a reliable and unobstructed flow of the oocytes.
  • The position of the flushing connector in relation to the longitudinal direction shows the physician the position of the opening of the sharpened tip of the needle during puncturing.


The medical product carries a CE certificate, is gamma irridated and tested for endotoxines. The device is intended for single use.
