Flexible biopsy catheter coming soon to da Vinci Surgical Robots

 

Intuitive Surgical has worked on releasing a flexible biopsy catheter designed to take tissue samples from deep within the lungs. The company announced about a year ago that it is working with Shanghai Fosun Pharmaceutical Group, a Chinese firm, on the technology, and there were hints that more products are to be expected from the partnership.

In a newly published Youtube video from Intuitive, that is profiled below, it looks like the company is set to soon make the technology available on its robotic devices.
