The unique characteristic of the Foerster Forceps is the octagonal handle. The unique handle is designed to provide more "feel" and control at the tip. This handle also provides a better grip while wearing gloves. The tips are very fine and serrated and provide a sure, steady grip of tissue without trauma. The Foerester forceps are excellent for fine dissection of mice and dissection under a microscope.
