Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility allows us to control all aspects, from design and formulation right through to the manufacture. Technical expertise is on-hand to ensure you receive a safe, high quality product every time.
SpherasorbTM
A unique medical grade soda lime designed speci cally
for clinical use, Spherasorb has a long history of use within anaesthesia and meets all the requirements of the United States and British Pharmacopoeias. Spherasorb’s chemical formulation has been developed speci cally to address the potential problems of use within the medical environment, while maintaining the highest possible CO2 capacity.
Features and Bene ts:
• Only 1.5% Sodium Hydroxide. Less than standard
• soda lime
Zeolite to reduce the risk of drying out. No other absorbents
• contain a zeolite
Spherasorb is made of 3-4mm spheres processed to minimise potential dusting. Its uniform shape allows consistent bed packing, resulting in a more even  ow of gases through the absorber and therefore, a very ef cient absorption of CO2
Independent tests have shown that Spherasorb’s unique formulation signi cantly reduces the risk of drying out and reaction with volatile anaesthetic agents. Spherasorb exceeds the requirements of the United States Pharmacopia (USP).
LoFloSorbTM
A unique medical grade CO2 absorbent that contains no Alkali Hydroxide, LoFloSorb has a long history of use within anaesthesia and meets all the requirements of the United States and British Pharmacopoeias. LoFloSorb eliminates the risk associated with reactions with volatile anaesthetics.
Features and Bene ts:
• LoFloSorb contains no Potassium Hydroxide and no
Sodium Hydroxide, therefore no aggressive chemicals that • can react with volatile anaesthetics
LoFloSorb is made of 3-4mm spheres processed to minimise potential dusting. Its uniform shape allows consistent bed packing, resulting in a more even  ow of
• gases through the absorber
LoFloSorb offers a very stable green to violet colour change. This eliminates the potential for exhausted product being mistaken for fresh
Due to the absence of any Alkali Hydroxide, LoFloSorb does not last as long as standard soda limes or Spherasorb. LoFloSorb meets all the requirements of the United States Pharacopia (USP).
Compound A is a breakdown product of Sevo urane with
dry absorbents. Independent tests have demonstrated that LoFloSorb eliminates the risk of reaction with Sevo urane and other volatile anaesthetics.
IntersorbTM Plus
Suitable for use within anaesthetic breathing systems Intersorb Plus is a conventional soda lime CO2 absorbent comprised of short porous 3mm diameter strands. Available in two indicator colour changes, pink to white and white to violet, exhaustion of Intersorb Plus is clearly indicated by the colour change.
Intersorb Plus exceeds the requirements of the United States Pharmacopia (USP).
