Finally, a kerrison designed for infection control

At Vikon, we believe that if an instrument cannot be taken apart and thoroughly cleaned, then there is no way it can ever be truly sterilized.

Traditional (or non-take-apart) kerrisons cannot be taken apart for cleaning and disinfecting without destroying this instrument. This means that they harbor bacteria and bioburden case after case, which increases the risk of a surgical site infection.

The Vikon kerrison is a captured top rail kerrison. It can be fully opened, making it easier to clean, disinfect, and sterilize, making our kerrison the only truly cleanable kerrison.

Vikon Quick Release kerrisons feature an ejector bar and grooveless rails, both of which prevent bone and tissue from accumulating.

Non-take-apart kerrisons cannot be fully cleaned so bioburden accumulates and remains in the kerrison even after sterilization.
