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.

validation costs


Our team will partner with you to design a sterile-packed kit with our single-use accessories that is fully customized to your implants and surgical techniques so you can deliver a cost-efficient single-use kit to your surgical center that is always safesterile, and pristine.

Autoclave Self Destruct®

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 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.
