Bioseal’s ESSENTIA® Surgical Towels are sterile, soft and smooth, single use, latex free and has an 99% less lint and highly absorbent compared to traditional cotton towels and other non-woven towels. These also help reduce potential OR contamination and surgical site infections.
These towels can also be used in various needs such as mayo and OR back table stands which would sit flat with no over lapping edges.
what the experts say
“… it would be prudent for perioperative nurses to consider methods to reduce the levels of airborne particulates that may serve as vectors to increase the transport of microbes in the OR environment.”
“Airborne Particulates in the OR Environment” – AORN Journal by C. Edmiston – June 1999
shows how the particulate is easily removed in this demonstration below.

“Lint particles are disseminated into the environment where bacteria can attach to them. This bacteria carrying lint may settle in surgical sites and wounds with the resultant increase in postoperative patient complications.”
Lint Generation & Fluid Capacity Comparison
Compared to traditional cotton towels and other nonwoven towels, the ESSENTIA® ultra low
lint towel generates extremely low levels of particulate while still being highly absorbent.
