The SpeedBird platform is TransMed7's application of Zero5 technology to handheld, ultrasound guided soft tissue biopsy for the field of breast health.

SpeedBird – The new Gold Standard in forward coring SIMC biopsy devices

SpeedBird 38 - fully automated SIMC biopsy device

Forward Coring

The world’s only forward sample coring, ultrasound guided, vacuum-assisted, full fluid management device platform.

Minimally Traumatic

The simple nature of the penetration profile combined with constant rotation allows the device to gently move tissue aside during approach to the target lesion. This results in far less bleeding and trauma compared to sharp-blade penetration.

Single Insertion - Multiple Collection - "SIMC"

The cutting beak design paired with the smooth, hollow, inner lumen of the hypo tubes allows the operator to repeatedly capture and serially transport samples.

Ease of Use

"Point and Core" targeting along with effortless penetration makes accurate retrieval of samples easy for operators both new and experienced. High ultrasound visibility allows the Physician to stay on target at all times.

Consistent, Reproducible, High Quality Samples

Speedbird retrieves undistorted, full-core samples of any length regardless of tissue density. High-quality tissue samples are not only critical for diagnosis, such samples best enable the many options available for newer precision medical treatments, including genomic based therapies. Single Insertion - Multiple Collection (SIMC) for better patient care and reduced procedure time.

Cost Effective

Using the simplest possible cutting element lowers the cost of the most expensive component of biopsy devices. This allows the SpeedBird platform to aggressively compete in every market, world-wide.
