When you think of a scalpel, you immediately think of a medical operating room where doctors and nurses stand beside the patient and the surgeon performs the all-important first operation. The scalpel leaves deep, clean wounds on the skin and tissue. These scalpels are intentionally sharp to perform their intended function.
Traditional scalpels often cause tears when changing blades. Such a tear could cost workers more. It can also cost your company a lot of money. Disposable surgical knifes, used with proper handling and disposal techniques, reduce the risk of accidental tearing because the blades never need to be replaced. If you are working in an environment where sterile tools must be used, used traditional scalpels and other instruments must be collected and sterilized by autoclaving for reuse. Use a disposable surgical blade, no need to sterilize after each use. This means you don't need to go through rigorous inspections to make sure all scalpels are resterilized, or invest in expensive autoclaves.
Biological sample processing laboratories, forensic and coroner's offices, R&D facilities and veterinary research laboratories are just a few of them. This scalpel is also used in non-medical settings: high school and university labs, film processing labs, and the electronics assembly industry. Many of these facilities cannot afford expensive autoclaves. In these applications, the finger-friendly blade of the disposable scalpel minimizes the risk of unnecessary cuts while providing a convenient, sterile and disposable tool.
A non-disposable scalpel only needs to be sharp enough to complete a cut or scrape. Unfortunately, most non-disposable scalpels are made with blades that are too sharp and dangerous. This puts users at risk of accidental tearing. When designing scalpels and other cutting tools, manufacturers focus on all aspects of safety. The handle needs a secure, comfortable grip. The 100% zirconia material is stronger than steel, allowing us to manufacture safety blades with finger-friendly edges, reducing the risk of workers getting cuts when tools slip. In addition, some disposable scalpels do not require changing blades, which further reduces the chance of tearing.
Disposable scalpel blades are made of chemically inert high-grade ceramics, which are pollution-free, safer and more convenient. Coupled with the proprietary double-angle grinding -- giving them a finger-friendly edge that's safe to touch -- the disposable scalpel blades are sharp enough for non-surgical cutting and scraping tasks.
