RE: [Histonet] scalpel blades for grossing


We are keeping the fat ones also, both for the 22's and the 60's.  
The other day the Fisher rep. came in to show me some new "safety" blades and in the process of the demo he manage to cut MY finger.  In all my years of histology using "non-safety" blades I had never cut myself with a scalpel.  Go figure.

Subject: [Histonet] scalpel blades for grossing

I am interested to know what types of safety scalpel blades for pathology
grossing that list members are using. Which ones on the market are the best
to use? Our pathologists currently use a #22 non-sterile blade with a #six
handle.  The handle is rather "fat" and they like that.  The safety ones
that I have info on all seem to have very flat handles and the docs don't
like them. Thanks!
