evo-core / Core Biopsy Device


Evo-core a battery powered automatic reusable biopsy device designed to take samples from soft tissue in order to diagnose. Evo-core biopsy device provides one-handed operation without requiring physical strength thanks to its distinctive mechanism. While disposable needles are moved by micro electric motor, device can be used many times after sterilized. In addition, needle biopsy operations could bring a risk of cancer cell cultivation to healthy tissue when needle removed from the body. To prevents this risk, Evo-core has a protective cover which is easily attachable to device during operation.
