Bipolar forceps are electrosurgical forceps that are used to grasp or coagulate tissue during surgery. These forceps are connected to the electrosurgical generator through a bipolar cable. Unlike regular forceps, coagulation is produced in these forceps by the electrosurgical generator unit. Coagulation helps control blood loss during surgery and seal tissues easily. The electrical current in the forceps can be easily controlled by a surgeon using a switch. Robbins Instruments offer standard and non-stick bipolar forceps. Bipolar forceps should only be used by trained and licensed individuals.

Safety Measures to Follow While Using Bipolar Forceps
The following tips will help ensure long life of bipolar forceps:
- All our bipolar forceps are supplied non-sterile. Thus, they should be cleaned and sterilized before the first and every subsequent use.
- It is important to examine forceps for any cracks, or malfunctions before the procedure. Check around blades, stops, point ends, and snaps before using. Damaged forceps should be avoided. No repairs should be attempted on your own.
- Avoid using corrosive or abrasive cleaners to clean bipolar forceps.
- Use only a soft brush and purified water for cleaning.
- Bipolar forceps must be stored in a dry and moisture free area. The tips should be covered in a cloth, tube, or tip guard to avoid contamination.
