Occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens from needlesticks and other sharps injuries is a serious problem, resulting in approximately 385,000 needlesticks and other sharps-related injuries to hospital-based healthcare personnel each year.

Presenting the NeedleShark:

 

Shreds hazardous used sharps and syringes into harmless particles in less than 1.5 seconds. Without touching a button.


The NeedleShark is...

 

Safe

Zero risk of accidental needlestick injuries during handling and disposal of shredded sharps.

Integrated HEPA filter prevents pathogens from becoming airborne.

Hands-free operation further reduces the risk of injury during disposal.

 

Economical

Forget the hassle of expensive biohazardous medical waste disposal services. In some cases, sterile shredded sharps can be disposed of in the garbage along with normal waste.

Save on worker's comp claims and treatment expenses for needle-related injuries. Now you can cut costs AND maintain a safe environment for patients and staff.

 

Environmentally-Friendly

 Disinfect the shredded sharps with ApplyGuard, an all-natural germicide, for a total "cradle to grave" disposal solution.

The NeedleShark reduces the total volume of sharps by 85%, dramatically reducing the amount of waste sent to the landfill.

Secure

Shredded sharps are deposited into a locked container, preventing tampering until disinfected and removed by authorized personnel.

 

Legally Smart

The Resource Conservation Act of 1976 makes generators of hazardous waste responsible for that waste from "cradle to grave." Medical facilities are responsible for injuries caused by used sharps even after they are removed from the premises by a third party.

The NeedleShark sends used sharps to an early grave - reducing your liability exposure and giving you peace of mind.
