Disposable surgical scalpels incorporate an ultra-sharp, high-grade stainless steel blade on a plastic handle. Each blade is supplied with a flexible cover for complete user protection. Scalpels are sealed individually in transparent thermoform trays to improve product visibility and are packaged in units of 10. Sterilized by gamma radiation. Disposable scapulas eliminate the risk of cross contamination due to improper sterilization, and prevent the incidence of sharps injury during removal of contaminated blades from re-usable handles.
