Pathease Gross Dissection Knives - Made by Pathologists for Pathologists

Pathologist Karin Shemschat - creator of Pathease dissection knives and instruments - Sollex blogPathease is a Swedish brand of disposable pathology dissecting knives. The idea and design belong to experienced pathologist Karin Shemschat (Leg.Läk. specialist in pathology, cytology and forensic medicine). The knife blades were developed by the Swedish company Sollex, which has over 95 years of extensive experience in the production of blades and knives for various applications. The handles were developed by JIJ-Plast AB, which is also a highly successful plastic product manufacturing and engineering company in Sweden.

The primary users of Pathease gross dissection knives are medical professionals, particularly those in the fields of pathology, forensic medicine, and anatomical sciences as: pathologists, forensic scientists, medical examiners, anatomists, pathology technicians, medical students.

ALE 40% - Pathologist knives Pathease 80 and 150 mm - Pathology & Autopsy - SollexAs Karin Shemschat told us, using dissection knives in autopsies usually involves a number of difficulties and dangers. She wanted to create a pathology knife that would solve these difficulties for her colleagues. Some modern dissection knives have interchangeable blades, and replacing or reassembling the blade may require removing screws to hold the blade in place. This sometimes requires additional tools, gloves removal, and an increased risk of accidental cutting. In addition, proper tightening of screws or locking mechanisms is very important to ensure the stability of the knife during operation and to prevent accidents and injuries during the autopsy process.

The use of disposable pathology knives like Pathease 80 and 150 reduces the risk of cross-contamination between different cases or specimens. After each autopsy, the used knife can be safely disposed of.

Longer trimming knives Pathease 150 /1301 (15cm) are useful for making larger incisions, while shorter  Pathease 80 / 1302 (8cm) are more suitable for detailed work during autopsy. The autopsy knives turned out to be very sharp and with a built-in ruler, making them not knives but even autopsy dissection tools.
