    Cutting Above and Beyond Objection

    The CABO safety scalpel cartridge allows the surgeon to use his/her favorite scalpel handle. It is loaded with polymer-coated blade for the sharpest and smoothest cutting edge available, reducing drag and trauma, according to the Canadian manufacturer Southmedic.

    The cartridge system provides a safe and easy way to use and dispose of used blades. Opening and closing is simple with the locking/unlocking mechanism. The clear plastic sheath offers complete visibility and incorporates a convenient thumb rest. The sheath retracts fully to expose the entire blade. The CABO cartridge’s innovative features meet OSHA’s (U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration) guidelines for needle stick safety.
