The Expect Slimline (SL) Needle is an EUS-FNA needle that is indicated for four diagnostic and therapeutic indications, providing physicians with clinical options to manage their patients.
The Expect Slimline (SL) Needle is designed to sample targeted submucosal and extramural gastrointestinal lesions through the accessory channel of a curvilinear echoendoscope. It can also be used for the delivery of injectable materials (fluids) or fiducials into tissue or for passage of accessory devices.
Sharp needle grind :For precise targeting and sampling
Cobalt-Chromium construction*: Provides benefits over some stainless steel alloys including greater needle hardness and excellent tensile properties to deliver:1**
Echogenic pattern extends onto needle tip:
Stylet cap with integrated clip
Custom sheath sizes
Control ZONE™ and Lubricomp Polymer
