Biopsy forceps are surgical instruments used by surgeons or health care providers for grasping or holding objects and to collect samples, especially tissues for testing and diagnosis of diseases. The sample obtained from the patient’s body using biopsy forceps is then analyzed for disease condition, which enables health care providers to decide the course of treatment. Biopsy forceps are also used by surgeons during a surgical procedure to delicately handle tissues and vital organs and for performing a safe surgery. Biopsy forceps offered by market players are available in different shapes and sizes such as straight, angled, short, and long. The type of procedure to be performed, including tissue sampling or surgical procedures such as gynecological procedures, determines the type of biopsy forceps to be employed.
