Punches, Biopsy, Skin

Definition : Biopsy punches designed to excise a segment of tissue (frequently in the form of a thin disc several millimeters in diameter) from the skin intended for laboratory examination and/or test (i.e., biopsy) with minimal sample or surrounding tissue damage. These punches are typically handheld, manual instruments with a hollow sharpened tube at the distal end and a handle. Skin biopsy punches are available in a variety of sizes and diameters, and as reusable or disposable instruments; they are useful for performing biopsies of the full thickness of the skin.
