Less Lint than Cotton Gauze and TELFA pads

Watch as we compare the absorbency of the SWIPER to TELFA and gauze. Then observe shed particulates from 10 ml of fluid squeezed from each product.

*Data on file at Syntervention, Inc.

Lint fibers from cotton gauze and non-adherent pads can be transferred onto gloves, instruments, devices, into the air, and into patients.

The risk of complications like inflammation, granulomas, thrombus formation, infections, and even death have been linked to lint and fiber contamination; risks that increase readmission rates and associated costs. (Learn more)

SWIPER is durable and non-shredding.
One swipe cleans and hydrates with no lint left behind.

Highly Absorbent
and Efficient
  • Absorbs 20X its weight in saline solution
  • Transfers evenly to medical device surface due to its open pore structure and conformability
Effortless Handling
  • Designed for easy, repetitive manipulation
  • Conformable yet maintains shape when wet
  • Fits comfortably into any hand size
Cost Effective
  • Two (2) Swipers are the typical amount of product used during a single procedure
  • Manage less inventory to save on shipping costs, storage space, and medical waste disposal costs
