Tissue sampling is becoming a more common diagnosis method in the clinical field because of its diagnosis accuracy; however, some current methods involve at least two medical instruments for cutting and sampling, which makes procedures time consuming, invasive, and expensive. Our group has designed a millimeter scale medical device, which can cut and suction tissue samples simultaneously at rotation speeds ranging from 5,000 to 40,000 RPM. This project focuses on the structural analysis of the existing device by analytical and experimental methods to draw conclusions that could help in future designs.
