Procedure Kit/Trays, Biopsy, Aspiration
Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (either custom or standard) needed for collecting liquid and cells from a cavity by suction through a fine needle attached to a syringe intended for in-vitro analysis (i.e., performing an aspiration biopsy). Items in these kits usually include antiseptic swabs, anesthetics, a scalpel, a syringe with needle, Luer lock syringes, frosted slides, and needles; the kits may also include towels, a drapes, adhesive strip, bandages, specimen tubes, and gauze pads. Aspiration kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Biopsy aspiration procedure kits and trays are intended for use during the removal of living tissue for microscopic (in-vitro) laboratory examination to diagnose a variety of diseases; dedicated kits for bone marrow biopsy are available. Biopsy aspiration kits intended for use with ultrasound guidance are also available.
