  • Publication number: 20080064983
    Abstract: A method and device take samples of tissue from a tissue sample using a tissue punch device. The tissue punch tool has a cutter punch with a cutting end and a force receiving end. A mechanical drive mechanism advances the cutter punch. The cutting end of the punch cutter is positioned into an initial position that is above a tissue from a specifically identified mammal or animal to be sampled. The tissue to be sampled is punched with the tissue punch tool to support a punched tissue sample temporarily within the tool. The supported punched tissue sample is deposited into a single capsule within a clip of multiple capsules that has capsule identification information on the capsules and the clip. The capsule is closed to retain the tissue therein. The capsule identification information and identification information from the specifically identified mammal are combined into a single file and retaining that file in a database.
