Forceps

Forceps are a hinged, handheld tool which is used to grab and hold objects. Forceps come in handy when the fingers are too large to grasp a small object. The term forceps is used in medical fields only. Forceps use the principle of lever. Medical-grade forceps are made from surgical stainless-steel or carbon steel and can easily withstand high temperatures when being sterilized in an autoclave. Other materials to manufacture forceps are chromium and vanadium.

There are two major categories of forceps –

  • Disposable – they are made from plastic or other materials and other lower-quality materials.
  • Non-disposable – they are made from high-quality materials and can withstand effects of chemicals, body fluids, cleaning agents and different methods of sterilization.
