Single Use, Liquid Spill, On Hard Surface

Cytotoxic spill packs provide a rapid, safe way to deal with spillages of cytotoxic drugs. Used mainly in the treatment of cancers, cytotoxic drugs are handled in outpatient areas, wards and pharmacies and regularly carried between these locations. Under current health and safety legislation it is essential for locations regularly handling these drugs to have appropriate procedures in place to deal with spillages.

GV Health cytotoxic spill packs use high absorbency granules to ensure spillages can be safely cleaned and disposed of. Our custom Cytali solution is designed to neutralise cytotoxic residue of spill site and surrounding area. The small pack makes it easy to keep ready for use in all areas and ensure accessibility where it may be needed. The one use pack format prevents fragmentation of components and ensures all items are present when opened.

* Anti-cancer medicines: Cytotoxic medications is taken to mean toxic compounds known to have carcinogenic, mutagenic and/or teratogenic potential. Our Cytotoxic / Chemotherapy drug spill & disposal products ensure safe clean up & removal.
