Dissecting forceps, or dissection forceps, are used in laboratory and clinical environments for grasping and holding. Products are available in a range of lengths, shapes (straight, curved blunt, rat tooth flat, fine-pointed), and jaw types and include hemostat forceps for clamping. Products may be constructed from steel, nylon, or other materials.
What are forceps used for?
There are different styles of forceps to suit many applications where grasping or handling tissues and specimens is required, such as surgery, post mortem, veterinary and dental labs as well as dissection of tissue samples and also general lab use including manipulating smaller objects such as cover slips (cover glasses, cover slides) onto microscope slides.. They can also be used in manufacturing processes where accuracy and precision tasks are carried out.
- Spring forceps include Storkbill and Featherweight designs. Used for a variety of applications such as surgery, post mortem, dissecting etc., and a variety of life science applications.
- Thumb forceps can be straight or curved and have fine points. They are used when quality and precision are required. Extra fine tip thumb forceps are used for micro dissection tasks.
- Entomology forceps are used for a variety of applications, while rat tooth designs are ideal for major and minor surgery applications.
- Locking hemostatic, scissor handle forceps are also referred to as clamps and are used to securely hold tissue and control blood flow.
- Complete dissection sets (kits) are also available and will include other tools such as scalpels, scissors and dissecting needles. These are ideal for lab use and teaching environments.
