Raising the Standard

The Arrow® OnControl® Powered Bone Access System represents the first major advance in bone and marrow sampling procedures in over 40 years. Find out how this category-defining system from Teleflex is raising the standard in biopsies and aspirations for cancer centers and interventional radiologists with proven results.


"We didn't realize how easy bone biopsies could be."

The Arrow® OnControl® Powered Bone Marrow Biopsy System and Powered Bone Lesion Biopsy System should not be used by clinicians unfamiliar with the complications, limitations, indications, and contraindications of bone marrow aspiration and biopsy.
