Cross infection is now a major concern throughout all aspects of medical care.
With the growing problems surrounding resilient virus strains and prions, guidance by the Association of Anesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland (AAGBI) indicates that single use devices are to be preferred (see Infection Control in Anaesthesia 2nd Edition, 2008)
Single use airway products are now a vital part of combating infections in anaesthesia.
Over the past few years, Timesco have pioneered the development of single use laryngoscope blades that provide unrivalled clinical performance. Our Europa and Callisto single use metal blades are recognised as the No.1 systems throughout the U.K. and are used as the blades of choice in most major U.K. hospitals.
Despite their limited life, all our single use products are made to provide the highest level of clinical performance, without compromising patient care, and yet they are economical enough to be disposed of after use.
We don’t compromise on quality, why should you?

Timesco’s green fitting Callisto LED handles have exceptional specifications to reduce cross infection at a cost low enough to justify single use. Available preloaded with button cells or for use with dry cell batteries. The preloaded version (DS.3940.480.10) is supplied with alkaline button cells for convenience. Easily removable for quick and safe battery disposal after use. The expiry date for the batteries is clearly marked on the handle. The dry cell version (DS.3940.470.10), requires 2 C size dry cell batteries, not supplied with the handle.
