  • Development from a heat-treated, stainless steel alloy that delivers optimal strength and ductility to resist bending and breaking.
  • Blunt point geometry that allows for easy soft-tissue penetration with no more additional bleeding or patient trauma than with a conventional taper needle.
  • A ribbed and flattened body that affords stability in the needle holder, for improved protection against slipping.
