Custom Needle Points

Modern Grinding's advanced machining makes it possible for us to manufacture almost any custom medical needle point. We have manufactured needle points in the style of the following needles:

  • Tuohy Needle Point

    - A Tuohy needle is a hollow hypodermic needle, very slightly curved at the end, suitable for inserting epidural catheters. Due to it's shape it allows the catheter to exit laterally at a 45 degree angle.
  • Franseen Needle Point

    - Crown-point tip for samples in fibrous lesions.
  • Whitacre Needle Point

    - The Whitacre needle is designed to spread the dural fibers and help reduce the occurrence of post dural puncture headache.
  • Quicke Needle Point

    - The key arrangement of a quicke stylet and cannula hubs facilitates proper needle bevel orientation
  • Dos Santos Needle Point

    - For lumbar aortography and left ventriculography. Thinwall cannula with short bevel, closed point and a see through hole 4mm from the point.
  • Mengini Needle Point

    - The Menghini needle is 6 cm long with an oblique tip slightly convex towards the outside.
