Precept Surgical Gowns are designed to provide superior performance under a wide range of conditions. Chosen for both comfort and protective qualities, materials used include UltraGard SMS and Dupont Softesse® medical fabric. These latex-free surgical gowns feature adjustable hook and loop neck closures, top-side arm seams and generous sizing.
Gowns made with DuPont Suprel® fabric provide both comfort and protection. This innovative fabric, born from a composite technology, combines a high level of protection with a silky smooth texture that glides easily without catching or grabbing, providing greater freedom of movement. Gowns made from DuPont Suprel are available from Medline Industries, Inc.
SmartGown surgical gowns deliver the highest level of protection as well as a responsive membrane to help keep users cool and comfortable throughout the longest procedures. The gowns incorporate an innovative breathable, impervious fabric that not only allows water vapor to escape, but responds to increasing temperatures by increasing the amount of water vapor it allows to escape.
PolyWear Personal Protective Disposable Gowns are made of a linear low polyethylene film and feature an full-length open back design incorporating a tear-away feature for quick and easy removal. A contoured thumb loop secures gown sleeves under the employee’s protective glove. One-piece construction with a single heat-sealed seam behind its sleeves reduces the potential for “pass-through” of fluids and other contaminants.
Designed by surgeons to be super lightweight, yet strong, SL Mesh Super Lightweight features a proprietary weave that creates an interstitial pore size of 100 microns, which encourages fibroblasts to invade the mesh resulting in more mature collagen than standard meshes. Surgeons will appreciate the soft edges and the isotropic elasticity that allows SL Mesh to conform to natural tissue contours, increasing patient comfort and reducing pain.
Cook Surgisis Biodesign is an innovative technology for tissue repair that incorporates the best attributes of a biologic graft and a synthetic mesh. Designed to adapt to the body’s unique anatomy, the mesh allows the body to naturally restore itself after surgery or treatment. Cook Surgisis derives from small intestinal submucosa and provides long-term strength, resistance to infection and natural tissue regeneration.
MEGADYNE has applied their innovative design and technology to Laparoscopic surgery. The result is the E-Z Clean® Resposable Laparoscopic Electrodes featuring Disposable E-Z Clean MegaTIPs® and Reusable Indicator Shafts®. These instruments provide excellent dissection and coagulation for a variety of laparoscopic applications, rendering surgical procedures cleaner, faster and safer.
The AUTOCON® II 400 electrosurgical unit (ESU) is equipped for both bipolar and monopolar output, allowing surgeons to perform transurethral resection in either mode. The specially modulated C-Cut modes result in less bleeding and provide reproducible coagulation current and high cutting efficiency, reducing the need for subsequent coagulation.
Ideal for ear, nose and throat procedures, MEGADYNE’s disposable suction coagulators feature large, ergonomic handles to maximize comfort, efficiency, safety and ease of use. The suction coagulators are available in French sizes 8, 10 and 12 to better enable the surgeon to correctly match the coagulator to the size of the patient’s anatomy and surgical procedure being performed.
The TempaChek-DL Thermologger is an affordable data logger that is capable of independently capturing, logging and recording the complete temperature profile of an Automated Instrument Washer, including thermal disinfection. This data logger can be used to monitor a single cycle, recording the temperature every second, or can be used all day, providing a complete record of the Washer’s performance throughout the day.
The Nova StatSensor Creatinine handheld creatinine monitoring system enables simple, rapid and accurate assessment of renal function by finger prick capillary blood sampling at the point of care. Incorporating the patented Multi-Well™ test strip technology the system allows creatinine to be measured with a simple 30 second test in the emergency department, radiology, oncology, or other point-of-care areas where renal function must be assessed.

Miltex offers two instrument lubrication and cleaning solutions for the care of surgical instruments. Their Instrument Lubricant (3-705) is a concentrated non-silicone lubricant and rust inhibitor. A water emulsible soaking agent works to extend the life of surgical instruments. Used daily the solutions can help to keep moving parts operating smoothly.
EVICEL Fibrin Sealant is the first fibrin sealant to be indicated as an adjunct to hemostasis for use in patients undergoing surgery, when control of bleeding by standard surgical techniques is ineffective or impractical. EVICEL is the only all-human plasma-derived fibrin sealant commercially available in the United States.
