‘Further highlights include the CombiHook, an innovative colposcopy device developed alongside a selection of leading colposcopists, that enhances existing procedures specifically in cervical manipulation, where stabilisation helps to secure the clinician’s vision during the procedure.’

Since launching at Medica 2013, the DTR’s renewably sourced Rotating Cervical Biopsy Punch has been well received by clinicians worldwide, the firm adds.

‘A recent independent Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) study supports evidence that the instrument is 2.8 times less harmful to the environment than a standard Tischler.

‘The handle is made from DuPont’s Sorona plastic with 20-37% renewable material, utilising a renewably sourced propanediol (PDO) made from technical starch – a truly green innovation!’

Supporting the motto “Visibility, quality and safety in your supply chain”, the firm has integrated machine readable GS1-standard barcode labels across its instrument range, ‘… for improved product traceability with an increasing number of healthcare providers worldwide adopting an eProcurement strategy,’ DTR points out.
