"My patient had a history of post menopausal bleeding and had an abnormal Pap. The Pipelle came back with insufficient tissue. A D&C Hysteroscopy was done in the O.R., but that also came back with insufficient tissue. Lastly, I tried the Tao Brush and got a successful diagnosis off of cytology."

Cervical Histology

Gynecor’s Cervical Biopsy kit provides 4 vials of our proprietary NuFix fixative for collection of cervical and/or endocervical specimens. Gynecor also offers the SpiraBrush CX and SoftBiopsy collection devices which can be purchased through Client Services. Both are minimally invasive devices shown to be better tolerated by patients. For more information on these devices, please request information from one of our Territory Business Managers, or visit

Specimens collected by traditional punch forceps can also be submitted; the choice is up to the clinician.

Endocervical specimen may also be submitted in the following ways:

ECB (Endocervical brushing) Collection - Histology and Cytology

  • Gynecor’s ECB is a more gentle method using a brush to gently take a specimen sample from the endocervical canal and is overall more comfortable for the patient1
  • Studies show an ECB may be more effective than an ECC.1
  • Gynecor’s propriety NuFix allows for cytology, as well as histology, to be run for a more diagnostic result. The brush heads must be returned in the vial.
  • Endocervical specimen sent in the NuFix vial allows for HPV testing

ECC (Endocervical Curettage)

  • For endocervical specimen collected by traditional curette, histology only is performed.
