Blade Removers

The Swann-Morton Blade Remover allows for safe and easy removal of all sizes of scalpel blade from both No.3 and No.4 handles.

Supplied sterile it allows the device to be included on the instrument tray within the theatre and to be used at the site of the invasive procedure. The transparent nature of the material allows for 100% accountability of the blades used during the surgical procedure, each one safely encapsulated within an individual remover which may then be disposed of in an appropriate sharps bin or container.

If accidently dropped on the theatre floor the blade remover can be safely picked up with a gloved hand unlike if you dropped the unprotected dirty blade itself where sticky tape or a magnet may have to be used to retrieve it.

Product Showcase

Qlicksmart SnapIT is a simply safer way to open glass ampoules and avoid painful and dangerous sharps injuries.

This easy-to-use multi-use ampoule opener helps to avoid unacceptable sharps injuries rates seen when ampoules are opened by hand. Opening ampoules is a particularly high-risk event with 26% of needlestick and sharps injuries (NSIs) being caused by opening an ampoule or by broken ampoules.

You simply insert the ampoule lid into the multi use SnapIT making sure you have the correct size. If there is a dot on the ampoule then align this with the dot on the SnapIT. Snap "away" from your body to open the ampoule. You can then eject the glass ampoule lid directly into a sharps container.

There are both personal and trolley versions available in the range.
