What Is Sharps Waste?

Sharps waste is a form of biomedical waste composed of used sharp objects, including any device or item use to puncture or lacerate the skin. Common medical materials that classify as sharps waste include syringes, injection devices, blades and contaminated glass or plastics.

How Long Are the Tongs?

The tongs have an approximate length of 24cm (which is roughly equivalent to 9.5").
