SIRANE Medical & Healthcare has welcomed a new sales team member as the company looks to capitalise on an expanded product range and an increasing level of inquiries.
James Hemmings will already be well known to many people in the medical and healthcare sector, having worked in sales for many years, selling into numerous sectors.
Sirane Medical & Healthcare division’s range of products has seen a number of recent additions – including absorbent mortuary products, incontinence sheets & liners, SafetyGel super absorbent products, nylon autoclaving pouches and medical waste bags.
These new additions complement the existing range of products including diagnostic specimen transportation packaging, disposables including tourniquet drapes, non-slip theatre mats and saliva absorbers, and absorbent spillage protection with BenchGuard.
Jonathan Mason, business development manager, said: “Sirane’s Medical & Healthcare product range is expanding, and we’re receiving many varied inquiries, and so we are particularly pleased to welcome James to the team, he will be kept very busy!
“As a company we have a number of specialisms, including absorbency and working with nylon materials, and the new products in the range reflect the work we do. James will be selling existing products, as well as working with companies to identify new ones.
“We have introduced a range of mortuary/funeral absorbents, for example, in which we can offer pads, mortuary liners, coffin liner, casket liners and absorbent wadding. However, we can also integrate odour-control and anti-bacterial properties, so we’re able to use the company’s expertise to offer products that are not currently on the market.”
Sirane’s specialism in absorbency is also the key to the range of incontinence sheets/ liners, which like the mortuary products, are available in a range of shapes/sizes/absorbency levels, as well as being the foundation of most of the medical division’s original and long-established products such as absorbent theatre mats and saliva absorbers.
Jonathan Mason added: “Our work with nylon has seen us add nylon medical/dental autoclaving/sterilisation pouches and bags – nylon offers superior abrasion and tear resistance – and nylon bags for the safe disposal of medical waste.
“And of course we still have our existing range, which we continue to develop, including a suite of diagnostic specimen transportation solutions under the Safe-Hold™ banner.”
Sirane’s range of Safe-Hold™ products are designed to ensure full compliance with legislation surrounding specimen transportation – removing the risks associated with packaging failure.
Safe-Hold™ offers a range of absorbent solutions – including pads, pouches and 95 kPa bags – which will enable the user to meet guidelines such as Packing Instruction 650. Sirane can offer fully tested and approved 95 kPa bags in sizes up to and including A4.
Safe-hold™ absorbent pads and pouches are available in a wide range of sizes with absorbency levels calculated to meet all requirements. They are available with a leak-proof adhesive closure, puncture resistance, printed tracking information and other features.
Sirane is a highly innovative product development-to-manufacture company based in Telford, Shropshire. It has four divisions: food packaging; medical and healthcare; industrial and horticultural. The company can supply anywhere across the world. We also have a network of agents and distributors who between them cover all major continents.
Jonathan Mason added: “Sirane is a product development company, and we are always happy to hear from companies who want us to work with them on developing the exact product they need, and we thrive on a challenge – so please get in touch.”
SIRANE’S medical and healthcare products will be exhibited across the Atlantic for the first time next week – with final preparations underway for Pharma Expo in Las Vegas.
We’ll be taking a range of medical and healthcare products, including absorbent products, specimen transportation products, surface protection and some advanced solutions.
Pharma Expo is co-hosted at Pack Expo, one of North America’s largest trade shows. Pack Expo is being held in Las Vegas, Nevada, from September 28-30. Pharma Expo would be a sizeable show in its own right – 2014 saw 262 exhibitors over 60,000 sq ft.
Adam Green, president, Sirane North America, said: “Sirane’s expertise in areas such as absorbency and material science means that we have some very exciting and innovative products to introduce to the North American market for the first time.
“Pharma Expo and Pack Expo is a terrific show, and a great place for us to show off our medical and healthcare range for the first time in the US. With the expo now so close, we’re starting to get excited. Products such as BenchGuard Advanced and Sira-Care DiffX, as well as some of our other absorbent products, should provoke some real interest.”
BenchGuard® Advanced offers the ultimate bench protection for laboratories, hospitals, surgeries and other clinical environments where high absorbency and sterile surface protection is required. It has a highly absorbent surface and an effective liquid barrier layer to ensure that spillages are contained and protect the work top.
Jonathan Mason, Sirane’s business development manager, said: “BenchGuard® Advanced is an absorbent, impermeable faced cellulosic fabric suitable for protection of laboratory benches and similar surfaces from spillage. It should prove very popular in the US.”
BenchGuard® Advanced is strong and tear resistant even when wet and its flat smooth surface can be written on with pencil or ink. Used BenchGuard® Advanced can be readily disposed of after use and its clean composition means that it is suitable for incineration.
BenchGuard® Advanced is available in pre-cut sheets of various sizes and also in reel/roll format. It is also available with adhesive strips, preventing movement on the work bench.
Meanwhile, hospital and healthcare providers looking to save money can do so by using a powerful new disinfection system which both cleans and disinfects at the same time.
Sira-Care DiffX eliminates all surface contamination 100% and has the potential to not only revolutionise global infection control but also contribute significant financial saving. It is already used by an ever-growing number of NHS hospitals in the UK.
“When used as part of a cleaning regime it both cleans and disinfects at the same time, so there is a clear time saving,” said Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, “but it can also save money by keeping wards clean, disinfected and infection free, reducing lost bed days, the cost of decontamination, cost of antibiotics and treatments, staff sickness and agency staff.
“As it is non-corrosive it also maximises equipment use – again, leading to financial savings.”
An exciting addition to Sirane’s already popular Sira-Care range, the company is already working on providing the product in new formats to complement the existing range – the first of which is hoped will be producing a pack of Sira-Care DiffX handy wipes.
Sira-Care DiffX truly represents a new generation of infection control. It is non-chlorine-based, non-corrosive, cleans and disinfects at the same time, and eliminates all surface contamination – including MRSA and viruses, C Diff spores, Norovirus, TB and Mycrobacteria.
Other products which will be on show at Pharma Expo include disposable absorbent non-slip theatre mats (OR mats), specimen transportation solutions including bags, pads and multi-bay pouches, 95 kPa bags, and active pouches for disabling potentially harmful drugs.
Sirane also manufactures absorbent products for use in dental surgery, including saliva absorbers – sold under the Tongue n Cheek brand - and extraction packs.
The company’s medical and healthcare division also manufactures many more absorbent products, including coffin and mortuary liners, absorbent wadding and incontinence liners.
