Product Range in Focus

KLEEN Blade Management System

Complimenting the existing range of safety products the KLEEN Blade Management System allows for effortless safe attachment and removal of surgical blades from a standard handle.

The system which incorporates a quality Swann-Morton surgical blade is designed to operate with most No.3 and No.4 standard surgical handles already in circulation within the hospital system thus minimising disruption and cost during the conversion process.

Product Showcase

The range of Swann-Morton Retractable safety scalpels supporting and enhancing safe passing procedures and protocols has been extended with the addition of a safety stitch cutter.

Further to the implementation of EU Sharps Directive across the member states of extended Europe, Swann-Morton have responded to the end user demand.

Functioning in the same fashion as the existing range of Retractable safety scalpels the Stitch Cutter has a high visibility Yellow slider to compliment the Red body.

Stitch Cutters are often used within GP Practice, Care homes or during Domiciliary visits so it is essential that an exposed sharp is not left around after use as there may well be other parties such as children, residents or even a household pet within the immediate vicinity. With the Safety Stitch cutter the blade can be retracted away and locked in place to avoid any potential sharps injuries.
