Manufacturing single-use instruments, including Dental, ENT, Women's Health, Podiatry and General Surgery, plus cotton-based medical absorbents, and veterinary medicinal products, we're proudly protecting patient and healthcare professionals safety through safe, effective surgical solutions.
Excellence in medical absorbents can be traced back to the 1850's when Robinson Healthcare was the first company in the world to mechanise the production of absorbent lint and in 1885, they took out the world's first patent for a sanitary towel. Since then, we've continued to exceed safety standards and produce the highest quality products.
Our products are developed to meet the latest standards and benefit from modern, high quality manufacturing. The result is highly effective, high performance absorbents designed primarily as secondary wound dressings - but suitable for many other purposes.
Where applicable, Robinson Healthcare cotton wool products conform to the British Pharmacopoeia monograph. The British Pharmacopoeia (BP) is the official collection of standards for UK medicinal products and pharmaceutical substances, including surgical dressings.
Meeting standards stated in the BP monograph for absorbent cotton requires the use of high quality raw materials and careful attention to manufacturing techniques.
The raw material we use undergoes microbiological testing to ensure that they comply with the company's strigent requirements for low microbial count. It is also passed through a multi-phase magnetic removal process to ensure no metal contamination.
All our finished products regularly go through the stringent microbiological testing, and passes through a final stage electronic metal detection for ferrous and non-ferrous materials for added safety. We continuously test our products in our onsite laboratory to ensure compliance with the appropriate BP and European Pharmacopoeia (EP) monographs.
