Secure gelling of liquids in small containers
Ref: 9578410, box of 100
- Absorbs and gels biological fluids even in small containers
- Secures the collection, transport and disposal of biological fluids
- Contributes to the fight against nosocomial infections
The single-use GelMax® water-soluble pouch absorbs a wide variety of chemical products routinely used in the laboratory. The GelMax water-soluble pouch is very useful in reducing the disposal costs of liquid infectious biomedical waste.
Its water-soluble film dissolves in contact with the liquid and powder inside, in contact with fluids and materials, acts from the first contact with fluids to gel the contents, and thus limit the risk of splashes and spills.
The small size of the pouch enables it to be used in small
containers – ostomy pouches removed from the patient, suction bottles – as well as the medical testing laboratory.
