Research and development labs, clean rooms and biomedical facilities have stringent rules to protect the integrity of the work done there — sterilization is key. Slice has introduced a tool that protects workers while protecting the work.
The Slice 10574 Disposable Scalpel features our finger-friendly blade. This gamma-sterilized, individually wrapped tool combines the desirable properties of advanced ceramics with a blade that is safe to the touch. Slice blades are free of oil or other coatings, chemically inert, non-sparking, non-conductive, and never rust. In addition, the 10574 scalpels are non-magnetic and metal free, making them an ideal tool for MRI rooms.
“When workers are handling chemicals and bio-hazardous materials, the importance of preventing lacerations grows exponentially. Something as small as a paper cut is the perfect spot for pathogens to enter the bloodstream,” said TJ Scimone, Slice founder and CEO. “Slice ceramic scalpels reduce that risk significantly with our patent-pending blade grind, which cuts effectively, but is much safer to touch than standard scalpels.”
For labs that don’t require pre-sterilized tools, the 10568 Ceramic Scalpel offers an alternative. This tool is autoclave safe and uses a variety of replaceable craft blades — all finger friendly — for specialty tasks.
