Abstract

In order to facilitate the handling of sharp instruments, the metal rack shown in the illustrations was designed and found practical. The

Rack to hold sharp instruments. instruments once placed in the rack need not be touched until the operator or his assistant removes them at the time of operation. Repeated handling of the sharp instruments during the process of sterilization may thus be avoided.

Better protection is afforded when a large number of instruments are placed in the same tray. Sufficient clearance is allowed so that the knives when removed by a forward sliding motion do not come in contact with the edge of the basin.

Various sized cataract knives, keratomes, discission needles and capsulotomes will fit this rack.
