Applications

Here are some common research applications for our surgical instrument line. Here you will find instruments used for each area of research.

  1. Electrosurgery
    Electrosurgery and electrocautery (also called thermal cautery) are not synonymous. Electrosurgery passes current through the patient and is not suitable for some applications. Our electrosurgical unit allows for cutting, blended cutting, coagulating, fulgurating and bipolar applications. On the other hand, electrocautery passes the current through a metal wire electrode, causing it to heat. This current does not pass through the living tissue. Our thermal cautery unit is suitable for treating numerous minor surgical conditions and is ideal for applications such as dermatological, ENT, and plastic surgery cases, or any procedure that requires accurate hemostasis.
  2. Neuroscience
    Looking for surgical instruments for your neuroscience laboratory? WPI offers quality surgical instruments for lab use at affordable prices.
  3. Non-Reflective Instruments for Microscopy
    Our black instruments are coated with titanium nitride (TiN), an extremely hard ceramic material.The TiN coating hardens and protects the cutting edge. Ceramic coated anti-reflective instruments are perfect for microscopy and microsurgical applications.  Coating surgical instruments with a black ceramic offers several distinct advantages.  Non-reflective Corrosion resistant Low friction Wear and tear resistant Biocompatible The coating adds a thin layer to the metal instrument that actually makes the instrument harder, offering surgeons greater precision and perfection. This anti-glare surface minimizes any reflection off the surface of your instruments. The incredibly smooth coating improving the instruments' resistance to corrosion and minimizing friction. The reduced wear and tear means coated instruments last considerably longer. The ceramic coating is virtually impenetrable, because the raw material is bonded to the instrument both physically and chemically. The black coated instruments are much more resilient to the pressure of daily use and chemical processing. Coated instruments last considerably longer.
  4. Pathology
    Here you find quality dissection instruments for all your precision work in gross anatomy and pathology labs. A range of scissors, forceps, blades and left hand instruments are available.
  5. Single Or Limited Use Microsurgical Instruments
    These are an idea choice for students or for one-time use. All our bulk instruments are all made of surgical grade stainless steel.
  6. Veterinary Sciences
    Here are a variety of instruments and equipment frequently required by veterinarians.
