A special surface treatment on the tip of the Pipelle® Mark II helps collect endometrial cells for smear cytology.
The body and the plunger of the device, identical to the original Pipelle®, are used for the histology specimen.
The sampling technique is identical to that used with the original Pipelle®.
To retrieve the collected samples:
1- Cut the rough tip and place it into a vial containing a solution for liquid-based cytology,
2- Push the plunger to expel the tissue specimen in a vial for histology
