Buying Single Use Instruments Many customers buy Surgical Single Use Instruments and you should be aware that although the quality is good, these are not made from the same Stainless Steel that is used for Reusable Instruments. In Hospitals they are used for a single patient because of the risk of cross contamination and infection measures. They are inexpensive and good value for money. They should not be compared to the European Reusable Instruments that cost hundreds of dollars. For personal use they can be used several times over but will eventually wear out if autoclaved repeatedly. Please refer to the clinical section regarding"Single Use Instruments".
