NeedleSmart is market leading, patented needle destruction technology engineered in the UK. NeedleSmart devices heat hypodermic needles to over 1,300°C before compressing them into a ball. It takes just a fraction of a second to convert a sharp needle into a sterile sphere of metal. Heating the needle to an excess of 1300°C means all potential harmful pathogens, virus and bacteria adhering to the needle are killed. In addition, by employing the NeedleSmart Pro’s unique data generation capability, you can update electronic patient record information in real-time and manage your sharps inventory through an automatic re-ordering process. Compressing the needle also significantly reduces the needle footprint leading to a minimum of 50% increase in needle count per sharps bin.
