Splice-Cast appoint new UK distributors for unique unbreakable speculum

Splice-Cast manufactures top-quality, competitively priced “Products For The People Who Care” in the UK. Due to the increasing popularity of the unbreakable Ultraspec speculum in primary and secondary healthcare markets, Splice-Cast has widened the availability of the product range by appointing several new distributors in key regions throughout the UK.

The Ultraspec speculum has been designed and developed in the UK with extensive input from UK clinical professionals. This market-leading product combines the three essential criteria for a quality speculum required by practice nurses: it is comfortable, flexible and unbreakable.

The product stands out from the crowd in that patient comfort is not compromised by strength. Splice-Cast’s innovative manufacturing techniques and the use of advanced polymers which flex with the body mean that discomfort is reduced to a minimum. The Ultraspec speculum is unbreakable in normal use, alleviating the risk of shattering and injury to the patient. The product features a registered-design, smooth-spinning locking nut to allow easy opening at variable speeds and is available in a comprehensive range of sizes.

The widespread use of Ultraspec by practice nurses proves that the Ultraspec speculum ‘ticks all the boxes’, with one nurse commenting after trying the product that “Ultraspec made cervical cytology easier as the patient appeared less tense.”

With 100s of 1000s of Ultraspec specula sold in the UK and abroad already, and zero reported breakages, it looks set to become a firm favourite among discerning clinical staff.
