Surgeons and laboratory technicians use biopsy punches and curettes to remove tissue samples. These punches are for use in research laboratories.
NOTE: WPI surgical instruments are for laboratory research applications. They are not certified for use on humans.
Electrophysiology—Patch recording (various regions of the specimen can be punched prior to separation).
Biomedical Pharmacology—Collect samples from the brain neurotransmitters for analyzing the metabolic changes in response to active substances, or skin samples to analyze the response of anti aging medications.
Anatomy—Sample brain regions for analysis of neurotransmitter concentrations of mRNA levels.
Forensic Sampling—WPI punches can easily cut, retrieve, store and eject material like skin, gel, films, paint chips and paper. (Better samples are collected using one of our self-healing cutting mats 504620 or 504621.)
Microfluidics—Punch flow inlets in microfluidics chambers molded of PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane).
