Cytotoxic waste management

Keep healthcare staff safe with our compliant and secure cytotoxic waste management solutions

Cytotoxic waste is defined as waste generated from the use of cytotoxic drugs. This may include but are not limited to:

  • Waste from cytotoxic treatment
  • Sealed disposed sharps containers
  • Disposable theatre wraps and gowns
  • Gloves and surgical mask

Cytotoxic drugs contain specific chemicals that are dangerous to cells, even after being used. This waste stream must be handled with care and caution to minimise exposure risk to patients and healthcare staff.

Meet the CY64

The CY64 Cytotoxic bin from the Clinismart range presents a revolutionary new way of isolating and securing trace cytotoxic waste disposal in an oncology setting. These bins are operated by foot pedals, minimising infection transmission risks. The cytotoxic waste bins also have temporary front locks to prevent tampering and are complemented with accessories designed to minimise odour expulsion and enable point-of-use accessibility in patient rooms and infusion bays.

The CY64 is designed with the same security and ease of use found in other Clinismart bins. It is reusable, minimises infection transmission and contamination of other waste streams. The leak-proof body and lid securely seals fluids and odours, making the CY64 perfect for containing the waste from cytotoxic treatment including vomit bags, dressings, laboratory research waste, sharps in sealed containers and more.
