The single-use GelMax® water-soluble sachet absorbs and gels biological fluids and a wide variety of chemical products routinely used in the laboratory. The GelMax water-soluble sachet is very useful in reducing the disposal costs of liquid infectious biomedical waste.Upon contact with liquids, its water-soluble film dissolves and the super-absorbent powder disperses to gel them, thus limiting the risk of spilling and splashing.
The small size of the pouch allows it to be used in small containers - ostomy pouches removed from the patient, suction jars. Its use is recommended in departments such as :
- Intensive Care Unit
- Intensive Care
- Digestive Surgery
- Geriatric units
- Hospitalization at home
- Care at home
