Disposable Biopsy Forceps VS Reusable Biopsy Forceps

Biopsy forceps can be divided into disposable biopsy forceps and reusable biopsy forceps. So what exactly are the differences between these two?


1. The Different Prices of Disposable Biopsy Forceps and Reusable Biopsy Forceps


Normally, the price of reusable biopsy forceps is higher than the disposable biopsy forceps.


2. Sharpness of the Blades of Disposable Biopsy Forceps and Reusable Biopsy Forceps


Normally, the reusable biopsy forceps are sharper than the disposable ones in terms of the initial uses. However, after repeated uses, the blade of the reusable biopsy forceps is easy to get blunt. As a consequence, it will not only result in more wound bleeding,  but the quick removal of the sample will also not get guaranteed. Thus, the use of reusable biopsy forceps can actually increase the difficulty of the operation and the pain of the patients, and it requires secondary disinfection before every use, otherwise there will be the possibility of cross-infection. In contrast, disposable biopsy forceps do not have the trouble of blunt incisions. Moreover, this kind of biopsy forceps also cause less wound bleeding and there is no need to sterilize it before use because there is no possibility of cross-contamination.


3. The Materials of Disposable Biopsy Forceps and Reusable Biopsy Forceps

Disposable biopsy forceps are made of sterile materials, which are non-toxic and have no side effects on the human body. They are not only easy to operate but also very convenient. Their spring hoses have smooth outer walls and strong passability, and they are not easy to damage the access hole of the endoscopic forceps. In particular, when the lesion is sampling, the blade of the biopsy forceps is very sharp and will not cause huge wounds to the patient. One person, one clamp, one use. Strictly in line with medical norms, disposable biopsy forceps can effectively avoid cross-infection between patients.
