Surgislip® is a concentrated instrument lubricant for use in washers or for soaking instruments in.
Clinically tested to be thoroughly steam penetrable, steam sterilisable and Ethylene Oxide sterilisable.
Surgislip® is a non-sticky, non-toxic, silicone-free and water-soluble mineral oil lubricant that can withstand the high temperatures of autoclaving without becoming gummy.
Forming a protective barrier on surgical instruments, Surgislip® prevents rusting, staining, and spotting while restoring articulation to sticky box-locks and joints.
Surgislip should be used routinely on all surgical instruments. Recommended usage is once per week. In areas where there is a high mineral content in the water, it may be necessary to use more frequently. DO NOT USE A MORE CONCENTRATED SOLUTION to accommodate this problem.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Mix one part Surgislip with ten parts warm water. Place diluted solution in a non-porous bowl/container (preferably stainless steel). Immerse thoroughly cleaned instruments into Surgislip solution. Remove instruments and let drain dry. DO NOT RINSE OR WIPE. For exceptionally stiff instruments, actively open and shut forceps, clamps or scissors in solution for 30 seconds and then proceed as directed Drained instruments are ready for preparation and terminal sterilisation. Always cover Surgislip solution when not in use. Solution may require gentle agitation prior to use.
