How is the closing pressure of clips and clamps measured?

Roboz offer a variety of vascular clips and clamps with a large closing force range. This force is designated by the amount of weight in grams the clips exert at a defined point on clip's jaws, or conversely, the weight in grams needed to open the jaws to a particular width. For example, the RS-5420 micro clip has a closing force of 70g. That means it applies 70g of force at 1/3 the jaw length, or 70g of force need to be applied to open it to a width of 1mm. Below is a chart with these measurements:

RS-5420 - RS-5435 Micro Clips (70g) closing force at 1/3 jaw length and 1.0 mm opening
RS-5452 - RS-5459 Schwartz Clips (795g) closing force at 1/2 jaw length and 1.5 mm opening
RS-6470 - RS-6492 Micro Vascular Clips (30-60g) closing force at 1/3 jaw length and .5 mm opening
RS-7438/RS-7439 Dietrich Clamps (90g) closing force at tip of jaw and 1mm opening

Bulldog Clamps

Summary: Bulldog clamps are useful in surgeries that require precise blood stoppage.

The Bulldog clamp is a useful instrument for stopping blood flow to a particular organ of interest. One of the most common applications where a bulldog clamp can be used is during coronary surgery where blood flow must be stopped. In general the bulldog clamp, with its many angled varieties and surgical applications, is an essential tool during surgery where blood flow to an organ must be stopped or controlled.

Micro Clips and Clip Applying / Removing Forceps

Summary: Ideal for clamping of small animal vessels.

These micro clips provide a very easy and secure method of stopping blood flow while performing procedures on vessels. Using the Roboz applying forceps, such as RS-5440 and RS-5410, surgical clips can easily be position on the vessels. The locking forceps allows for easy, precise, and secure grasping of the micro surgical clips. Simply grasp the clip with the forceps to open the jaw, slid it over the vessels and release. To remove surgical clips, simply perform the procedure in reverse. This procedure does not compromise the vessels integrity.
