BxChip Increases Both Tissue Yield & Prostate Cancer Detection

The BxChip is an engineered tissue-mimetic array that safely holds up to 6 needle-core biopsies in a single cassette throughout tissue processing.
It is designed to keep needle core biopsies straight.

Vertical variation differences between a BxChip block and a traditional block

• Histologic tissue surface area (mm2) increased by an average of 14.5% on the glass slide
• Biopsy core length increased by an average of 31.8%.
• Most notably, the overall cancer detection rate increased by 9.3% (49.5% to 58.8%)!
