The Universal™ surgical towel is commercially available for sampling and sale.  This nearly lint free OR towel holds 30% more fluid than a common cotton towel.  It is 17” X 26” in size which is large enough to cover mayo stands and is very drapable.  The Universal™ towel also provides improved hand-drying and ultra-fast absorption of all fluids.

Cath & IR Labs
For these labs, we created a white ESSENTIA  Standard™ Ultra Low Lint towel which is now available.  Also we have an X-ray detectable version in our Premium-Blue towel.  And soon the Universal™ towel will also be available as X-ray detectable
Sterile Packs
Many customers prefer to have their EssentiA towels available as a sterile pack for the shelf.  Please Contact us for more information on a sterile pack option for your facility.
Most healthcare facilities need to trial a device prior to acceptance.  We appreciate this necessity and therefore are able to offer EssentiA Trial Packages.  Please Contact us today to set up your trial which includes everything you need to easily evaluate the EssentiA towel.
