Of these devices, five are in active development, while the remaining six are in an inactive stage of development. There are three products in the early stages of development, and the remaining two are in the late stages of development.

Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) Needles are narrower than their Core Needles counterparts, usually 20 gauge to 25 gauge forms, however some clinicians and researchers may consider slightly smaller gauge forms as FNA Needles as well. FNA Needles are used for a variety of disease indications. Common types of FNA Needles include Chiba, Franseen, Wescott, among others. Ultrasound-Guided FNA Needles and Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided FNA Needles are covered under this subsegment. One unit refers to one FNA Needle.

Innovations in the medical devices sector are linked to the development of new approaches, processes, or technologies for treating, diagnosing, and managing disease in response to demand from healthcare for better patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.

Based on an analysis of GlobalData’s Medical Intelligence Center pipeline product database, these actively developed Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) Needles pipeline devices are all expected to be approved within the next ten years.

Currently, private organizations, public entities and institutions are working on the development of Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) Needles devices. Overall, most of these Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) Needles pipeline devices are being developed by private entities.

Key players involved in the active development of Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) Needles include Columbia University, Duke University, Duke University, Limaca Medical, Medical Ultrasonics Laboratory, NeoDynamics, OnePass Medical, TransMed7, University of Michigan and University of Missouri.
