English term or phrase: tissue collector, mesh (dental)
Does anybody know of a good way to translate "tissue collector"? It's a kind of tube with a mesh at the end which is connected to a suction line and sucks up and retains bone particles during drilling, which can then be used for transplantation. I'm tempted to use "Kollektor" but it sounds a bit too physical.

Also what would the correct translation for "mesh :2mm" be in connection with the mesh at the back of the collector, is this simply "Siebweite" or do dentists use a different expression?

Thanks for any help in advance

Explanation:
I found one website (a German medical supply house) for Gewebekollektor: http://www.allegiance.de/medi_4.htm

For the mesh size, you might want to use Siebmaschenweite, or, as you had suggested, Siebweite. See below:
...wurde jede Probe an Bord mittels eines kleinen Siebes mit der gleichen Maschenweite (Siebweite: 6,5 mm) aufgetrennt, wie sie von den Abnehmern der Garnelen an ...
