Sharpen your instruments. Save your money.
From wear, drops and dings, surgical instruments can be prohibitively expensive to replace. That's where Corte Instruments comes in. Skilled technician Daron provides precision surgical instrument sharpening and repair to the medical research community.
The repair process is done by hand with custom files and stones. Honing machines are rarely used on any instrument shorter than 12cm (4.7"). Minimizing this impact ensures the least amount of metal is removed to refurbish an edge or tip, so the instrument retains a "like new" look and function.
Sharpen your instruments, save money. Having your forceps, scissors, or rongeurs refurbished costs 66-90% less than replacing them. A 2002 survey of the first 100 orders done by Corte Instruments showed that the average lab saved nearly $1000 in new instrument costs. Click 'services' for the general price list.
Typical turn around is 4-7 days. Instruments sent to Corte Instruments can be repaired and shipped the following business day. If you need expedited turn around, call or email AFTER the box is delivered and I can bump it up in line.
Check the repair schedule to see if there is a potential conflict with a quick turn around because of being out of the office.
