ALPHA ORganizerTMLaparoscopic Hand Instrument Organizer
The ALPHA ORganizerTM is a unique organizational tool, designed by surgeons for surgeons,
to make the selection of laparoscopic hand instruments inside the sterile field easier and faster. During endoscopic procedures, the lighting in the operating room is typically low and all of the hand instruments are similar, but their tips are different. Under these circumstances, even an experienced scrub tech often finds it difficult to provide the correct instrument. The ALPHA ORganizer features a front nameplate with names and images that clearly mark the precise location for up to eight hand instruments for easy recognition of the surgeon and/or procedure for which the organizer has been designed. The ALPHA ORganizer puts the right tool, in the right hands, in record time.

Lightweight, autoclavable and durable, the ALPHA ORganizer is also easy to assemble for convenient cleaning and setup, and its top can serve as an additional tray.
The ALPHA ORganizer is a component of the ALPHA O.R.™ by Olympus, a totally customized operating room offering the highest level of patient care through seamless, build-on-demand (BOD) integration of surgical and communication devices. By providing real time-saving and cost-saving benefits such as quicker O.R. set-up and by enabling superior imaging for quicker visualization, treatment and reporting, ALPHA O.R. reduces stress for surgeons, nurses and support staff.
In September 2004, the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons (SLS) recognized the Olympus ALPHA ORganizer as one of the Innovations of the Year at the SLS 13th International Congress and Endo Expo.
