Our History

The Problem

In 2001 we were established as a direct response to concerns over cleaning practices

Local hospitals identified that fine lumen suction tubes used in surgery posed a high risk of patient to patient cross infection due to being too difficult to clean

The Solution

In collaboration with clinicians Matthew Tulley, our founder, developed a range of single use suction tubes with the same look, feel and functionality as reusable instruments

The suction tubes were well received and our customer base grew rapidly


Supporting better operations through quality innovations

Developing Our Range

As more hospitals chose to switch to single use, we were approached by other surgical departments to provide UK manufactured single use alternatives to difficult-to-clean multi-use instruments

Innovative solutions were developed for Gynaecology, Laparoscopy, General Surgery and Vascular Surgery. Many of these instruments provide improved ergonomics and functionality, as well as consistent quality and a safe alternative to reusables instruments

Each product is developed to ensure cost and efficiency savings

With many sterilisation services being off-site or outsourced by hospitals, our range is beneficial as it always available and accessible

We are always interested in expanding our product portfolio with high quality innovative devices. Are you looking for a UK and/or Republic of Ireland distributor for your medical device? Please contact Jon Blastland our Sales Director
