Sharpsguard Extra Cyto 8.5L Sharps Container (Case of 15)

As hospitals and other medical environments can often generate a lot of clinical and potentially harmful waste, it is important to ensure that correct storage and disposal systems are in place. The Sharpsguard Extra Cyto 8.5L Sharps Container (Case of 15) conforms to BS EN ISO 23907:2012, enabling the safe storage of sharps for incineration, particularly in areas of high public access.

Please note that this container is designed to hold sharps contaminated by cytotoxic and cytostatic waste, and should be disposed of separately to other healthcare waste.

Safer Design

The Sharpsguard Extra Cyto 8.5L Sharps Container has been designed to provide a safer method of storing sharps for incineration in areas where there is high public access. It features a rotating chamber that helps prevent the retrieval of contents, which will be particularly important in areas where children may be around.

The chamber also provides an indication when the container is full to prevent overfilling. The temporary closure position on the lid provides extra security, and the robust handle enables safer and easier transportation for disposal.

Ideal for Versatile Use

As the Extra Cyto 8.5L Sharps Container is larger in size to enable greater capacity, it can be used in a wide range of situations. It is ideal for hospitals and wards where the frequent disposal of sharps is required, and will also be useful for public access areas with high traffic to help ensure that contents are not tampered with or put the public at risk.

Standards Conformity

The Sharps Container conforms to BS EN ISO 23907:2012 ‘Sharps injury protection – Requirements and test methods – Sharps containers’. This means that it meets the specifications required by the standard for the disposal of sharps.

Conforming to the standard will help provide assurance that the Sharpsguard Extra Cyto 8.5L Container is safe and reliable for storing sharps for incineration in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
