The Sarratt single-use, colorectal biopsy forceps offers the practitioner a purpose-designed alternative to traditional re-usable instruments while eliminating risk of cross-contamination.

  • sterile, disposable & sharp cut everytime
  • peel-off traceability labels
  • 4mm non-spiked steel cutting jaws
  • eliminates cross-contamination risk
  • 5-year shelf life

Sarratt single-use biopsy forceps are designed for routine use in outpatients, day surgery and main theatres. The forceps have sharp 4mm steel cutting jaws (unspiked), a rigid steel shaft 310mm long for use inside a conventional rectoscope/rigid sigmoidoscope, and an ergonomic handgrip with thumb-ring.

The forceps are supplied sterile, individually peel-pouched and include peel-off labels to for sample ID and tracking.

Concern has grown in recent years about the re-use of biopsy forceps inside the GI tract, driven by evidence of the inability of conventional cleaning and autoclaving to remove the protein prions implicated in the transmission of both long-recognised and new variants of CJD.

In addition, the jaws of continuously re-used biopsy forceps rapidly blunt, and the consequent reduced cutting ability may cause greater distress and bleeding to the patient than necessary.

The Stericom range of rigid disposable biopsy forceps is designed to address these concerns. These forceps may be used with any rigid rectoscopy equipment, but are designed specifically to complement the Sapimed scope-kit system.
