Swabs and sponges can account for over 50% of reported Never Events* relating to retained foreign objects post-procedure. Designed to stand out, an ingenious solution for enhancing intra-operative detection is now available in the form of Fluro-Tec® XRD Swabs & Sponges.
Exclusively brought to the NHS by Rocialle Healthcare, this new and innovative product range uniquely incorporates fluorescent, non-absorbent, UV threads which are easily detectable even when soaked in blood. In fact, independent studies have shown Fluro-Tec® to be nine and a half times more visible to the naked eye than standard swabs and sponges.**
Along with no loose threads, high absorbency and a reliable x5 count, the benefits of Fluro-Tec® include:
- Absorbs up to 8 times its own weight in fluids
- No loose threads
- Low linting
- Reliable x5 count
- Unique fluorescent threads are visible under UV light and detectable by the naked eye, even when soaked in blood
Available to order now, you can also make significant cost savings by switching from traditional XRD swabs and sponges.
