In order to highlight the importance of the proper care of its superior surgical instruments, Roboz is offering a free instrument care kit for orders above $300. The kit includes an instrument pouch for protection and storage, a tip protector to safeguard delicate instrument tips during storage like the ones of the popular Dumont #5 forceps, concentrated instrument cleaner as well as an enzymatic cleaner, and a special lubricant for hinges, which also provides a protective layer before sterilization. The value of the care kit is approximately $90, representing a 30% discount overall on orders of $300.
Quite simply, conscientious care of precision surgical instruments prolongs their lives and maintains them in peak condition, preventing staining, water spotting, or more serious damage.
Pouches prevent instruments from being stacked together, which can cause damage to edges and finish, and tip covers protect delicate points .
Roboz’s pH –neutral cleaners provide a safe and effective way to cleanse delicate instruments such as spring-type micro scissors or micro forceps that are difficult to clean with traditional abrasive cleaners. Their Enzymatic Instrument Cleaner breaks down organic materials such as blood, mucous, and sputum quickly and effectively, and is devoid of hydroxides, phosphates, or chlorides that can cause scale formation. Both cleaners are safe to use in ultrasonic cleaners.
Frequent lubrication is vital in extending the life of surgical instruments. The use of a specialized lubricant, generally called "milk" because of the emulsion’s white coloring, prevents spotting from mineral deposits left behind by cleaning in water. Corrosion, which attacks the pores of the metal and is often caused by improper cleaning, is effectively eliminated by lubrication. Lubricated regularly, a thin hard coating develops on stainless steel instruments which helps prevent damage from corrosion, and makes the instrument more resistant to stains and rust. Lubrication also reduces friction in the joints of such instruments as spring scissors and dissecting scissors, significantly reducing wear and maintaining the instrument’s smooth, delicate action.
