Swann-Morton Retractable Safety Scalpels
In response to EU Council Directive 2010/32/EU and subsequent local legislation Swann-Morton offer an extended range of Retractable Safety Scalpels including the larger sized 20, 21, 22, 23, 24 and 25A as well as a safty stitch cutter.
Supporting existing safe passing protocols and procedures the scalpel has a reinforced temporary lock in the forward user position ensuring the blade will stay extended even if it encounters a hard surface or bone during use. When in the retracted position the slider mechanism contains a notch that holds the blade securely in the retracted position. A permanent lock position at the rear of the scalpel, requiring a conscious amount of force to engage the slider, ensures the contaminated blade remains retracted whilst disposing in an appropriate sharps container at the end of the procedure.
With a high visibility red handle the sliders are colour coded for ease of blade shape recognition.
Extensivey used outside of the OR in Accident and Emergency,on the wards and within primary care.
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 international compliant No.3 and No.4 scalpel handles already in circulation within the hospital system thus minimising disruption and cost during the conversion process.
The blade is supplied sterile inside a protective sliding sheath which covers the blade completely thus assisting with accident free handling. The sheath fully exposes the surgical blade when in use with an intuitive lock which prevents any forward movement of the sheath during the procedure. Easy to detach the BMS encapsulates the contaminated sharp which is still visible for the final count and to help ensure safe and responsible disposal.

Cygnetic by Swann-Morton
For use within rigorous Orthopedic and General surgical procedures 'Cygnetic' ® provides the surgeon with additional strength and stability through the patented combination of its specially designed blade and handle. Its functionality will assist the nurse with safe and easy blade attachment and removal whilst the simple disassembly for cleaning will be welcomed by the decontamination department.
Initially the range will include four instantly recognizable stainless steel blade shapes the CYG 10, CYG 11, CYG 15 and the CYG 20 available in boxes of 50, sterile and individually wrapped in foil packets which can be used in conjunction with the unique Cygnetic ® Stainless Steel handle.
The Swann-Morton Blade Remover allows for safe and easy removal of all sizes of scalpel blade from both No.3 and No.4 scalpel handles. Supplied sterile it allows the device to be included on the instrument tray within the OR and to be used at the site of the invasive procedure. The transparent nature of the material allows for 100% accountability of the blades 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. If accidently dropped on the theatre floor the blade remover can be safely picked up with a gloved hand unlike if you dropped the unprotected dirty blade itself where sticky tape or a magnet may have to be used to retrieve it.
