Sharps Disposal


The safest and easiest way for your in-office sharps disposal

Sharps Disposal made easy. Everything you need to collect, treat and dispose of sharps waste is included, with no hidden fees and no contracts to sign. Simply fill your Isolyser/SMS container with sharps (needles, blades, endo files, empty carpules and any other potential sharps). When it’s full, add the ‘catalyst’ packs to the container, causing the liquid to heat and convert into solid plastic polymer. This treats and encapsulates the sharps; rendering them, non-biohazardous, unrecognizable, unusable, and safe for disposal in the regular trash. It’s that easy!

How It Works

Isolyser/SMS Sharps Disposal Step 1: Fill


Fill the container with needles, endo files, broken carpules, scalpel blades, etc.

Isolyser/SMS Sharps Disposal Step 2: Activate


Once full, add proprietary A & B catalyst packets to the patented, odor-free liquid plastic monomer inside each container. Let solidify. After curing, the liquid monomer solidifies into a polymeric matrix. The contents are treated and encapsulated; rendered non-biohazardous, unrecognizable, and unusable.

Isolyser/SMS Sharps Disposal Step 3: Trash


Following solidification, dispose of containers in your regular trash. Sharps Disposal Made Easy!

Compliance Guaranteed

With Isolyser/SMS, your sharps disposal compliance is guaranteed.

Preventing Infection

Isolyser/SMS is the only sharps disposal product that ensures potentially infectious sharps never leave your office. Our in-office treatment system is the original “Alternative Treatment Technology,” designed specifically for smaller quantity generators such as dental, medical and veterinary offices.

Exceeding the Highest Treatment Efficacy Standard

To confirm its effectiveness, we contracted the services of Dr. Ira Salkin, one of the world’s leading consultants in the field of medical waste treatment technologies and the author of the STAATT III (State and Territorial Association on Alternate Treatment Technologies) Executive Summary.

The STAATT III Executive Summary is the benchmark for determining the efficacy of medical waste treatment technologies. STAATT III is considered the ‘gold standard’.

Dr. Ira Salkin performed efficacy testing and determined Isolyser/SMS exceeds the most stringent treatment standards contained in STAATT III.

"The comprehensive efficacy test results, performed in 2011, clearly demonstrated that the Isolyser/SMS Sharps Management System prevented the growth of potential pathogens such that the medical waste, i.e. sharps, no longer posed a danger to human health and the environment, per STAATT guidance, making Isolyser/SMS safe for regular trash disposal, as allowed by state regulations."

    Using Isolyser/SMS for sharps disposal is easy. Place needles, syringes, blades, endo files, broken carpules and other sharps in the Isolyser/SMS container, which is pre-filled with our patented liquid monomer. When full, add the two catalyst packets. This will activate the monomer, generate heat and solidify the sharps into a solid polymeric matrix.  Once solidified, the sharps are treated and encapsulated; rendered non-biohazardous, unrecognizable, unusable, and safe for disposal in the regular trash.

  • Why is Isolyser/SMS better than hiring a waste disposal pick-up company?

    Traditional waste disposal pick-up companies use antiquated systems, including large dedicated trucks that generate a tremendous amount of pollution to collecting sharps waste. Couple that with the pollution associated with treating relatively small amounts of regulated waste and ultimately driving it to a disposal site and its easy to see there are many wasteful and expensive efficiencies in this process. The average sharps container is driven 100 miles BEFORE its treated and then another 50 miles to a disposal site. By comparison Isolyser/SMS is disposed of using transportation vehicles already visiting your office. Isolyser/SMS containers are driven about 50 miles before disposal, about 100 fewer miles per sharps container.
