Confused about channel instruments?
Which Tool for the Job?
If you can find the make and model of your endoscope that will be a big help. Then you'll be able to find out which product code to order. Not sure what scope you have? Watch this.
Preparing to Order
You need to know the size of your biopsy channel and the length of your patient tube. For example, a VET-8028 endoscope is 1.5m long and has a 2.8mm channel. It requires a channel instrument not greater than 2.3mm by at least 1800mm - so that there is enough length to reach through the scope and into the patient.
- If you have a 1mm channel, you can use 1mm channel instruments.
- If you have a 2mm channel, you need to use 1.8mm instruments.
- If you have a 2.8mm you can use 2.3mm instruments or thinner.
