About Single-Use Peha®-Instruments
Peha®-instruments from Hartmann are a safe and economical alternative to reusable instruments. These Hartmann single-use instruments are made of matted, brushed steel. The brushed finish prevents reflections; thus, providing increased safety.
Using a procedure specially developed by Hartmann, the disposable instruments are cleaned prior sterilisation. As a result, disposable instruments boast reliable levels of purity and sterility. Peha®-instruments not only prevent the risk of cross-contamination, but they also fully meet the standards for feel and handling that comes with high-quality medical instruments. To avoid mixing up single-use Peha®-instruments with conventional reusable instruments, these single-use instruments are marked with a single-use label for medical products, as well as with the Peha® Colour Lock® security label. Because Peha®-instruments do not have to be reprocessed, they effectively save on time and cost; not only making them worthwhile for smaller practices, but also for hospitals and physician's kits. Each disposable instrument is individually sterile-packed and has a sterile shelf life of 5 years. Peha®-instruments are alway on hand and ready to use. The Peha®-instrument series offers a wide variety of instrument types in different models–from anatomical forceps to specialised surgical instruments. The single-use instruments in the Peha®-instrument series cover all the major types of medical instruments.
Disposable Peha®-instruments can be disposed of in the household waste after being placed in a transparent, puncture-proof container. In the case of incineration, the recycled material can be used to manufacture new products.
Single-use Peha®-instruments are always in perfect functional and sanitary condition, thereby offering the highest possible degree of user comfort and safety.
