Integra LifeSciences received FDA clearance and is now poised to release its Jarit line of take-apart laparoscopic instruments. They are reusable and designed for easy cleaning and sterilization, which should help with quick turnarounds and help hospitals save money in the OR.
This product line addresses the growing concerns of both hospitals and regulatory bodies about the need for instruments that can be more easily cleaned and sterilized. “These new laparoscopic patterns are an important addition to our instrument portfolio. Long, narrow cannulas and intricately fitting components are a challenge to clean, yet are necessary for minimally invasive surgery. Our new take-apart design balances ease of cleaning with surgeon preference, both of which are important goals in achieving optimal patient care,” said Dan Reuvers, President, Integra Surgical.
