The Latest Advance in Ultrasound-Guided Ovum Pickup
The Heifer Handle 3 is a custom-designed ultrasound accessory device designed to place the most advanced OPU procedures within reach of even small clinics.
Specially engineered for early heifers, the Heifer Handle 3 is engineered for convenient, one-handed operation and guidance. As the most compact OPU transducer in the large animal veterinary field, the Heifer Handle 3 uses a light rod with threaded short needles (WTA) for a fail proof setup, allowing your practice to harvest oocytes from younger, smaller donors.
In addition, the Heifer Handle 3 is permanently sealed, so it’s easier to clean, as well as easier to use.
With 128 elements and a frequency band of 5.0-7.5MHz, the OPU transducer allows accurate visualisation with very high resolution. The OPU transducer is a microconvex transducer with a 25mm field of view and a 150° angle across which the crystals are spread. This allows a wide view angle and easy visualisation of the whole ovary in a single image.
