3. Error Recovery
Having to re-do the whole procedure just because no biopsy sample was obtained the first time is inefficient. one procedure usually takes about 20 mins - 1hour inclusive of preparation time, and if the procedure needs to be repeated, it would take twice as long. This is not only uncomfortable for the patient, it is also very time consuming on the doctors’ busy schedules.
Marrowtap allows doctors to remove the specimen with the forceps needle before the outer hollow needle is removed from the patient's body. In the event that no specimen is obtained, doctors can reinsert the forceps needle into the same spot, eliminating the need to repeat the whole procedure and puncturing another hole in the patient.
