The Miltex® Biopsy Punch with Plunger is a disposable coring tool designed to core, punch and retrieve samples from thin or soft substrate source materials such as tissue, gels, paper, cloth, leaves, paint chips and films. These punches are an alternative for the Harris Uni-Core™ punches.
The Miltex® Biopsy Punch with Plunger consists of a ribbed plastic embossed handle with a razor sharp seamless stainless steel cutting tip. Each Miltex Biopsy Punch is individually packaged sterile with a shelf life of 5 years. Each punch has an internal plunger designed for safe and efficient removal of the specimen from the tip. These punches are available in 5 core size diameters: 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0mm. All punches are colour coded by size. Maximum depth: 7mm.
This is a disposable sampling tool, ideal for tissue processing or forensic applications. For some applications where contamination is not an issue, the Miltex Biopsy Punch is reusable after cleaning.
Cleaning Tip: Clean cutting tip between each sample extraction by coring blank filter paper; rinse with ethanol or spray with compressed air to remove dried artifacts.
