Aseptic Technique in Rodent Surgery: Other Materials

Key points to note

  • All other materials needed for the surgical procedure that will come into contact with the surgical site must be sterile and must be used within their stated expiry dates.
  • It is often convenient to purchase items such as scalpel blades and sutures in sterile packs, which are opened when required.
  • Delicate materials, for example, catheters, that could not withstand autoclaving can be purchased pre-sterilised or sterilised using other methods, such as ethylene oxide.
