OEM Products

Always safe, sterile, and pristine. Always.

Reusable surgical devices become dull and deformed, drift out of calibration, and have high lifecycle costs. Contaminated instrumentation is a leading cause for infection.  Mainstream provides innovative single-use medical devices that replace surgical instruments that are ineffective as reusable devices.

      Autoclave Self-Destruct® Feature

      Mainstream’s patent-pending Autoclave Self-Destruct® mechanism prevents re-sterilization for reuse in single-use devices. If inappropriately autoclaved, a device featuring Autoclave Self-Destruct® will become mechanically unusable and provide a visual indication that the device was autoclaved contrary to Mainstream’s Instructions for Use. This innovative technology can be applied to many devices.
