The superior control in incision that comes from a consistently sharper and more durable cutting edge is the hallmark that has set Swann-Morton® blades apart from any other, and made them indispensable to clinicians the world over.
Features of Swann-Morton Blades
A blade that’s not only initially sharper – but remains sharp – is the result of over 50 years' commitment to product innovation. The molecular structure of the carbon steel (used in the majority of our blades), delivers the consistently sharper edge that practitioners have come to expect when they open a Swann-Morton® seal.
To allow greater control of the blade during incision, a microscopically serrated ‘open edge’ is on one side of the blade. This open edge gives you greater fingertip feel in assessing both the depth and pressure of the required incision.
EXCEPTIONAL DURABILITY AND QUALITY
A cutting edge that maintains its sharpness for longer also offers cost and operational benefits in theatre. Stringent quality control procedures ensure that every blade is subject to 100% inspection, and have made BSN Medical the first surgical blade manufacturer to achieve BS5750 (ISO09001) accreditation.
It’s this combination of durability and uniformity of quality that has made Swann-Morton® the name that surgeons, theatre staff, general practitioners, and clinicians everywhere depend on.
Every box contains a vapour phase inhibitor, which is a thin layer of paper that absorbs any moisture that may become trapped within the box, eliminating the possibility of rust formation on the blade. The blade is therefore presented in an optimum state for you to work with.
Care must be taken when cleaning to avoid damage to the handle fitment, which could result in the blade not fitting correctly.
