Re: Ergonomic Tweezers

   Surgipath offers good ergonomic forceps They are bigger in size than most I have used in histology, but they are designed well. They are made of a light weight metal and have holes up the sides. They require very little pressure to open and close. The shapes fits well in my hands. I use them for embedding and microtomy.

Hello everyone,

If anyone has had success with a particular type of ergonomic tweezer for someone with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) could they please share the vendor information?  We have a need for some in our histology labs.

Thank you,
