Polypectomy and Tissue Acquisition Devices

Gastroenterologists as well as colorectal surgeons conduct polypectomy procedures and are typically minimally invasive procedures used to remove polyps from inside the colon. Endoscopic tissue acquisition is commonly performed with polypectomy devices such as snares, retrieval nets, and polyp traps. STERIS offers an extensive and unique line of endoscopic tissue acquisition and polypectomy devices, including snares and ROTH NET™ Retrievers. From the dynamic COINTIP™ Snare supporting hot and cold cutting capabilities to our clinically proven EXACTO™ Cold Snare, we offer a product to accommodate various needs.

STERIS products and services are intended exclusively for Healthcare professionals only and are not available for purchase by consumers.
