Endometrial sampling is an important first-line procedure for diagnosing the cause of Abnormal Uterine Bleeding (AUB). In-office sampling with a disposable curette is the least invasive method for getting an endometrial sample, and using the EndoCurette® sampling suction curette, with its multiple elongated curetting ports on the tip, provides a much more robust sample for histological assessment.
The EndoCurette® is a sterile, single use suction curette which features a proprietary multiport curetting tip.
