Mopec Introduces Fully Submersible Oscillating Autopsy Saw

‘Mopec Autopsy Saw 5000 is lighter, quieter with an ergonomic shape’

OAK PARK, Mich. – Mopec brings a safer more efficient solution to autopsy technology with the introduction of the Mopec Autopsy Saw 5000 - a fully submersible oscillating autopsy saw with an innovative blade design.

Weighing less than three pounds, the Mopec Autopsy Saw 5000 is approximately one pound lighter than previous market options. Placement of the motor in the head and handle of the unit provides a balanced weight - resulting in a more precise cut with less operator fatigue.

Packaged with a total of four, non-corrosive, chrome plated steel blades in 64 mm and 76 mm circular and 51 mm and 64 mm segmented; the blade range supports all autopsy requirements. Designed for strength and effectiveness; course teeth enhance the cutting edge and reduce blockage. Oscillating at 13,200 cycles per minute, blade strength and durability allows for a five-year minimum life span with recommended annual maintenance. Changing blades is quick and easy with Mopec’s included unique blade clamp and blades can be rotated four times; surpassing the current industry standard of three.

“With user safety at the forefront of our considerations, the new Mopec Autopsy Saw 5000 features 40 volt DC hand operation, overload prevention, a simple one button start and stop switch, and chrome blades that reduce flexing and vibration,” said Mopec CEO Jane VanDusen. “Hermetically sealed, the Mopec 5000 is waterproof for full immersion cleaning and decontamination.”

Compact with lightweight construction, the new saw is easily portable, or can be securely built into any autopsy table. Specifically designed for autopsies, the Mopec 5000 is FDA listed and has CE certification.

For laboratories looking for the convenience of a bone vacuum, the saw works in conjunction with the optional Mopec Bone Vacuum 5000. Compact, portable and capable of extracting all harmful debris and matter, the vacuum rests on four large casters - all with brakes. With a bag capacity of 7-liters, the vacuum is IP44 water resistant and has 3-stage filtration, a HEPA filter, a cloth filter and paper filter bag.
