GRIDVIEW® enables breast biopsy procedures to be performed faster, easier, and more accurately than ever before! GridView keeps biopsy specimens in a closed container in a fixed orientation, reducing the time it takes to handle surgical breast biopsy specimens and multiple core biopsy specimens. GridView system is composed of a sealable, plastic container that contains a radiopaque, numbered grid for accurate orientation. Once sealed, the specimen is compressed onto the grid, keeping it stationary and ready for transport. Clamshell design compresses larger specimens for improved image contrast and contains specimen fluids. US PAT 5383472.
