Biopsy Punches & Curettes for Dermatological Skin Removal
Biopsy punches and curettes are instruments that are used daily in dermatology for removing skin. As a rule, these are most often single-use instruments, as disposable biopsy punches and curettes considerably reduce the risk of cross contamination and infectious transmission.
Biopsy Punches for Taking Skin Samples
The biopsy punch, also known as a skin punch, is used for precise, gentle skin sampling when performing a skin biopsy. The sharply grinded edge provides exact tissue extraction and leaves a wound with uniform edges, which is much easier to treat. Furthermore, tissue trauma is quite low when using biopsy punches. Biopsy punches are available in various sizes and forms. The elliptical punches are particularly popular, as the elliptically shaped biopsy wound is much easier to suture. Disposable biopsy punches are simply disposed of after use and do not require any additional processing.
Curettes for Removing Tissue Alterations
Removing skin surface lesions is often done using a so-called curette. These sharp, grinded and ring-shaped instruments (hence the name 'ring curette') provide precise, yet gentle removal of altered tissue without damaging the healthy surrounding skin. Curettes are available in various sizes and with differing diameters.
