Brushes, Cytology, Colon, Endoscopic
Definition : Cytology brushes designed to scrape and collect cells from the lower gastrointestinal tract, usually from the colon, through the working channel of a flexible colonoscope. These brushes usually consist of a cluster of bristles attached to a wire, possibly surrounded by a plastic sleeve, that runs back to a handle for external brush manipulation. The characteristics of endoscopic colon brushes, including diameter and length, should match one or more models of colonoscopes; these brushes may be intended for reuse or, more frequently, for single use.
