This sharp disposal kit reduces the risk of cross infection and cross contamination when dealing with potentially hazardous task of handling and disposing of sharps which may be contaminated with biological agents such as viruses, bacteria, fungi etc.
Sharps such as contaminated needles and syringes, knives, blades and broken glass can puncture the skin and act as a vehicle for the transmission of harmful micro-organisms.
The kit contains sharps handling forceps with a interlocking system that provides extra security when picking up needles, reducing the risk of the needle slipping. Also designed with a grooved tip, enabling the user to directly pick up not only the body of a syringe but also a loose needle.
The only sharps handling kit to include a 1 application sharps disposal container so there is no need to store dirty needles until the container is full; as you may do with a larger bin. It is also safer and easier to send a needle off for testing should a needle stick injury occur.
Stitchstop gloves provide an extremely high level of protection for clean up situations where risk of infection is heightened .
