A revolutionary core needle biopsy device

The Sertera biopsy device is the newest member of the Hologic ultrasound-guided breast biopsy family and is available in multiple gauge sizes. It is lightweight and designed to be completely armed and fired with one hand, making the Sertera biopsy device the perfect choice for core needle biopsies.
