Cook Medical has introduced the Otrieva Tapered Ovum Aspiration Needle for reproductive endocrinologists and embryologists to collect follicle.
The needle features a tapering process that results in a consistent bevel which collects ovum and leads to less pain and bleeding during aspiration.
The Otrieva needle has an inner diameter to minimize trauma to the egg during collection, but features a smooth taper that creates a small needle and allows physicians the control of a rigid needle.
The needle also includes Cook’s EchoTip technology that increases visibility under ultrasound.
Cook Women’s Health business unit leader Christina Anne said they are very proud to introduce this technology to the in vitro fertilization (IVF) world.
