MacPherson Medical Inc. has launched a novel multi-purpose surgical instrument tray that is designed to eliminate unnecessary prep time in the operating room. Made of Radel® polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) resin from Solvay Specialty Polymers, the Stat-Mat® Minor surgical tray reduces instrument set-up time from as much as 10 minutes to only 10 seconds, plus it protects instruments from damage and ensures fast and accurate instrument count.
Radel PPSU is a key element in the functional, user-friendly design. The material is easily formed into complex shapes and offers significant manufacturing efficiencies versus metal. The surgical tray is designed with an instrument roll and special pockets and holders so instruments stay in place and avoid damage. This eliminates jumbled piles of instruments and ensures fast and accurate instrument counts. Stat-Mat® organizes a complete general minor kit, customizable for multiple procedures.
Lightweight Radel PPSU enables the surgical tray to stay under 25 pounds (11 kg), averaging about 14 pounds (6 kg) with full instrumentation. The material also offers excellent chemical resistance and withstands repeated disinfection and autoclaving – over 1,000 cycles – while maintaining its toughness and impact resistance.
