The Graft Cleaning Station is a new device from Cole Instruments. The design is an autoclavable stainless steel wire mesh and stainless steel bowl. FUE grafts often have much-congealed blood on them. This blood makes the grafts sticky and more difficult to place. The grafts may be placed on the wire mesh and then sprayed with sterile saline to cleanse the grafts of all blood and thereby make the grafts easier to implant. The Graft Cleaning Station may then be easily cleaned and autoclaved for the next procedure. We will create a disposable mesh for countries where autoclaving is not possible. Cleaning the grafts with the Graft Cleaning Station will speed up the graft placement portion of any procedure.
The Graft Cleaning Shower is a perfect companion to the Graft Cleaning Station. The Graft Cleaning Shower is made by Cole Instruments. Cleaning grafts with a hand pump and sterile saline can produce hand fatigue. The Graft Shower is powered by a pump and gently sprays a mist over the grafts to rapidly and gently cleanse the grafts of all blood products. The Graft Shower effortlessly cleans the grafts and prepares the grafts for implantation. Ridding grafts of blood by-products make the grafts less sticky and much easier to place.
