ASI Rhino-Pro® Curette from Arlington Scientific

The ASI Rhino-Pro® Curette is a sterile, disposable nasal mucosal collection device designed to collect the optimum specimen with little or no discomfort to the patient. ASI Rhino-Pro® provides consistent and uniform mucosal samples with up to 1,000 times more cells than any other method. Cells do not adhere to the device, and no degranulation or distortion is seen after staining. Samples obtained can help determine cellular immunologic response.
