Trucut biopsy needle is made up of sharp needle which lies inside a hollow rounded sheath, on hollow sheath there are  a number of double markings which are present at a distance of every 5cms. To take biopsy follow the following steps

1. Wear double gloves, apply lignocaine jelly to finger, hold the needle along side of index finger, insert it the way as we do in PR examination, and reach prostrate gland.

2. Now advance the central core of the needle inside prostrate

3. Now push the outer core forward, do not do opposite of it, do not try to retract back the central needle, always push the outer core forward.

4. Now withdraw the entire needle.
