Product Description

  • HABER VARISCORE - FOR ACCURATE SCORING OF DONOR TISSUE
  • Allows for easy adjustment of the scoring depth in the range of 0 - 1.5 mm
  • Scoring depth can be adjusted either by lifting the blades with a 22 G hypodermic needle inserted through the Adjustment Path (see small slit in the photo under "VARISCORE SPACERS"), or by sliding the needle along the bottom edge of the spacers (see photo above)
  • Width of strip can be set in the range of 1 mm - 20 mm. See "VARISCORE™ EXTENDER" for details
  • Allows for easy angle adjustment of blades and spacers in the range of 0 - 45° to match the dominant angle of the hair shafts
  • Angle of blades and spacers can be adjusted with a 22 G hypodermic needle inserted through the Adjustment Path and at the maximum 1.5 mm blade projection
  • Designed by Mediquip Surgical - US Patent No. 6,887,250
  • Includes:
      - Variscore™ Knife Handle
      - A 1.0 mm top spacer
      - An extra tightening knob
  • NOTE: The scoring spacers will fit into the Variblade™ knife handle. The new handle (i.e, the Variscore™ / Variblade™ Knife Handle) has an additional pocket on the back of the handle (1.5 mm above the earlier pocket), which accept / support the tip of the 22G needle during angle adjustment. This pocket will simplify angle adjustment; although it is a single minor improvement, and it is not recommended to purchase the new handle if you already have the Variblade™ Knife Handle.
  • Stainless steel. Made in USA.

“The use of tissue spreaders requires the use of scoring incisions in order to avoid inadvertent transection of crucial portions of the hair follicle. Scoring incisions can be made freehand with a single or double bladed scalpel, however maintaining a consistent and desired scoring depth can be a challenge. The use of a depth limiting device facilitates the scoring process. The use of a double bladed scalpel is ideal for scoring incisions, as the exact strip width can be maintained. Existing depth limiting devices or attachments can only be used on handles designed to harvest strips up to 1 cm in width.


The Variscore, a new design of a double bladed handle solves these problems by permitting adjustments of three critical parameters. New long spacers with a flat, not rounded top allows adjustment of the scoring depth from 0 to 1.5 mm. Additionally, the blade angle can be easily adjusted from 0 to 45 to conform to the angle of emergence of the hair follicle. Finally, the strip width can be accurately set from 1 mm to 2 cm.


This handle is also ideal for those that prefer not to use the spreader technique, but desire a consistent strip width. After scoring to set your width, simply proceed with your preferred strip harvest technique."
