  1. The ornamental design for a charging station for a battery operated biopsy device, as shown and described.

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a charging station for a battery operated biopsy device showing my new design, having a charger dock oriented at an acute angle relative to a base;

FIG. 2 is a perspective view thereof with the charger dock oriented at a right angle relative to the base;

FIG. 3 is a side view thereof with the charger dock oriented at an acute angle relative to the base;

FIG. 4 is a front view thereof with the charger dock oriented at an acute angle relative to the base;

FIG. 5 is a rear view thereof with the charger dock oriented at an acute angle relative to the base;

FIG. 6 is a top view thereof with the charger dock oriented at an acute angle relative to the base;

FIG. 7 is an opposite side view thereof with the charger dock oriented at a right angle relative to the base;

FIG. 8 is an exploded perspective view thereof showing the charger dock separated from the base;

FIG. 9 is a perspective bottom-opposite side view of the charger dock thereof, shown separate from the base for ease of illustration.

FIG. 10 is a perspective side view showing the charger dock thereof;

FIG. 11 is a side view of the charger dock thereof; and,

FIG. 12 is a top view of the charger dock thereof.

The broken lines shown in the drawings are included for the purpose of illustrating unclaimed portions of the charging station for a battery operated biopsy device, and form no part of the claimed design.
