Eliminating the need to transport biohazardous fluids in liquid form, Absorb! solidifies and encapsulates up to 40 times its own weight of blood, fluids, and other liquid medical waste.  Absorb! is essential in minimizing health care worker risk of exposure to infectious medical waste.  
Screw Cap Solidifiers


By quickly and completely solidifying liquid medical waste at its point of generation, this “engineering control” breaks the first link in the chain of potential infection.


Absorb! is now protecting thousands of healthcare workers nationally and is available through major healthcare distributors, including Owens & Minor, Cardinal and McKesson-PSS, or directly through Northfield.



Spout Cap Solidifers


For easy access to the smaller ports on suction canister lids, Absorb! spout cap bottles allow health care workers to completely solidify the contents of virtually any size suction canister with minimal risk of spills or aerosoled particulate exposure.  Using the same proprietary polymer blend contained in the screw cap Absorb! bottles, our spout cap solidifiers provide the fastest, most thorough solidification in the industry.



Specialty Solidifers


Northfield has developed a number of medical solidifers for custom applications. For instance, our AbsorbWB product is used in certain hospital recovery rooms for the solidification of drainage blood. This proprietary blend of superabsorbent polymers works more effectively than any competitive products in the rapid solidification of human blood.  Contact Northfield directly if you wish to discuss a specialized product or a custom solution for your solidifier needs.

“We only use Absorb! solidifiers in our OR turnover process. We've tested them all, and Absorb! solidifes the fastest, and it just simply works as it should every time."

Roberta Jones, RN and Purchasing Manager
