Safe biopsy handling

Sometimes the simple solution is the most difficult to spot. One of the most common problems in connection with biopsy handling is the risk of being exposed to formalin either through touch or inhalation. A risk that doctors, veterinarians, laboratory technicians and nurses are exposed to every day. With BiopSafe the problem is finally solved.

 

The secret is in the lid

With BiopSafe there are no difficult formalin bags and wall holders that often leads to formalin waste. The system consists of a small, easy to use container (vial) with formalin capsuled in the lid. When the biopsy is placed at the bottom of the container, you screw the lid on and gently apply pressure with your thumb, allowing the formalin to flow out and cover the biopsy. Everything is done inside the container and no formalin is released in either liquid or vapor form.

 

Ready in seconds

Besides from being safe, the method is also fast. BiopSafe- is always at hand and the process of placing the biopsy, adding the formalin and making it ready for transportation to the laboratory is done in a matter of seconds. BiopSafe saves valuable time and at the same time ensures that concentration is not broke unnecessarily during operations.

Formaldehyde, a carcinogen officially declared by the European Commission

On 5th June 2014, in the EU regulation 605/2014 concerning amendments of EU regulation 1272/2008 (CLP-V) the long discussed reclassificaon of formaldehyde has been published: as of 1st April 2015 the appendix VI to this regulation will be changed in so far that formaldehyde must be marked as carcinogenic 1B and mutagenic 2.

According to this regulation, however, the harmonised classificaon may be applied immediately. So the amendment of the classificaon has been performed and has to be put into effect within the allocated period of time in terms of the respecve substances and their mixtures.
