Best™ Needle Loading Fixture

Needle Loading Fixture

The Best™ Needle Loading Fixture is a stainless steel device used to assist the loading of needles with seeds and spacers – loose or in strands.

The fixture consists of two marked slots to insert the cartridges (one containing seeds and one containing spacers).  The seed or spacer can be selected by pushing the knurled knob on the front of the fixture to the corresponding position as determined by the dead stops.  The seeds or spacers are pushed into the viewing area, which consists of a lead acrylic shield, by moving the pusher to the left.  The selector on the left of the fixture consists of a stopper rod in one position and a nozzle (to put the needle for loading) in the other.  The seeds and spacers or strands are pushed into the needle through the nozzle at the end of the fixture.

The fixture can be sterilized in the Autoclave by using the same cycle as used for any other stainless steel instruments in the hospital.  Or use the normal cycle (121 degrees C at 15 psi for 15 to 30 minutes) or the flash cycle (133 degrees C at 30 psi for about 4 minutes).
