Home > Specialties > Spatulas


Definition : Instruments designed to remove cells or tissues from a surface or cavity, spread materials on a surface, or mix materials. Spatulas typically consist of a metallic (e.g., stainless steel) or plastic handheld instrument, with a straight or curved thin, flat, blunt distal working tip. Some spatula handles have working tips on both ends. Dedicated spatulas are available to mix dental and orthopedic cements and other compounds, for superficial removal of cells for cytology, and to manipulate and/or dissect tissues during surgical procedures.
