Soft K-Rette for Veterinary

Soft K-Rette® is the simple single-use, sterile and gentle approach to perform wound debridement or a wound biopsy.

The Soft K-Rette®-V single-use disposable device is designed to be used once to debride and sample a visually apparent wound crevice at a single wound site. The Soft K-Rette®-V head is a tapered-tip paddle shaped device with a diamond shaped Kylon® fabric pad on one surface, that is easily directed to the wound surface crevice contour and maintained on a specific target area. Kylon® is a specialized fabric with individually arranged hooks that gently, frictionally abrade and collect the specimen within the rows of hooks and fabric. The diamond shaped head of the Soft K-Rette®-V is uniform and of optimal size for application to a fine wound target, or to brush a slightly larger area for debridement, or sample wound-base tissue if needed for analysis.
