CareFusion today announced its new Snowden-Pencer® laparoscopic take-apart instrument line, a portfolio of surgical instruments that can be easily disassembled to aid in cleaning and sterilization.
“Our new take-apart laparoscopic instruments can help support safer cleaning protocols for reusable medical equipment, at a potential cost savings compared to disposable instruments,” said Jim Leitl, vice president and general manager of the Medical Specialties business of CareFusion. “This addition to our market-leading surgical portfolio introduces unique product features not previously seen in the market that will help improve the usability, versatility and comfort of this category of laparoscopic instruments.”
The new line of take-apart instruments features three components designed to be intuitively assembled and disassembled, increasing the ability to visually inspect the instrument during cleaning. The instrument also features both audible and visual cues to help ensure it has been properly and securely assembled.
