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 and is now used extensively within UK Hospitals to assist with sharps injury reduction amongst staff.

Supplied sterile it allows the device to be included on the instrument tray within the OT and to be used at the site of the invasive procedure. The transparent nature of the material allows for 100% accountability of the blades that have been 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.

Product Showcase

The Swann-Morton Retractable safety scalpel supports and enhances safe passing procedures and protocols already practiced within the Operating Room and Theatres.
