Original Press Release:
Qosina Adds Revolutionary PenBlade® Safety Scalpels to Its Line
Qosina is excited to announce it has added the award-winning, single-use PenBlade® safety scalpels to its product line.
Qosina offers the PenBlade® in surgical blade sizes #10, #11P and #15. The rigid body is constructed of medical-grade ABS, and the blade is high-quality British stainless steel for improved sharpness and durability. The ergonomically designed PenBlade® is tapered for blade visibility. The pen-style activation is intuitive, using existing muscle memory (clicking an ink pen). The release button is positioned near the front of the scalpel, where it can be pressed without looking or repositioning the hand. When the blade is retracted, the end of the PenBlade® forms a suture-trimming groove, which encourages the user to finish a procedure in a safe position. This unique patented feature is not available on any other surgical scalpel.
Qosina will be showcasing the PenBlade®, in addition to thousands of stock components, at MD&M West, February 6-8, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA.
