  • Publication number: 20210236100
    Abstract: A biopsy forceps device includes a control member; a yoke coupled to the member; jaws coupled to the yoke; and a capsule. In an open configuration, the jaws are separated to receive target tissue. In a closed configuration, cutting edges of the jaws are moved toward one another to cut tissue. The capsule slidably receives the yoke and a portion of the jaws. The jaws are constrained to the closed configuration when withdrawn proximally to a first position within the capsule. When the jaws are moved to a second position, portions of the jaws are freed from the constraint capsule and spread apart. When the yoke and the jaws are moved distally and the jaws move to the open configuration, a tissue contacting structure of the yoke extends distally to engage tissue between the jaws to anchor the engaged tissue again lateral movement as the jaws contact the tissue.

  • Publication number: 20210007749
    Abstract: A device includes an elongated hollow member having an open distal end for receiving tissue therein and at least one exterior groove for loading at least one ligation band thereon. The device also includes a band deployment sleeve slidable over the exterior of the hollow member and configured to move from a radially expanded position to a radially contracted position in which, when the band deployment sleeve slides longitudinally over the hollow member, the distal portion engages the at least one ligation band. A closing sleeve slidable over the exterior of the band deployment sleeve is configured to constrain the distal portion from the radially expanded position into the radially contracted position. Retracting the closing sleeve proximally over the distal portion of the band deployment sleeve releases the distal portion from the radially contracted position into the radially expanded position.

  • Publication number: 20190254644
    Abstract: A biopsy forceps device includes a tension member and an end effector which includes jaws movable between an open configuration, in which the jaws are separated from one another to receive target tissue therebetween, and a closed configuration, in which cutting edges of the jaws are moved toward one another to cut a portion of the target tissue from surrounding tissue. The jaws defines a tissue receiving space therebetween to house the cut tissue. The jaws are pivotable relative to one another. The end effector further includes a tension member attachment coupled to the tension member; a distal end of which terminates at a sharp spike configured to penetrate the tissue. The attachment is movably coupled to the jaws so that distal movement of the attachment moves the jaws to the open configuration, while proximal movement thereof moves the jaws to the closed configuration.

  • Patent number: 7859664
    Abstract: The present invention provides a plurality of samples, each of which includes particles of a predetermined particle dimension, within narrow predetermined limits, dispersed in a carrier at a predetermined particle concentration. The predetermined particle dimension and the predetermined particle concentration are the same for each sample. However, advantageously, each sample has a different predetermined ratio of a value of an optical property of the particles to a value of the same optical property of the carrier. The present invention also provides a method for selecting a target sample from the plurality of samples to assess the measurement accuracy or the detection sensitivity of an optical particle analyzer as the predetermined ratio approaches 1.
