Eakin Surgical Ltd

About Us

Eakin Surgical, formerly known as Single Use Surgical, was founded in 2001 as a direct response to the cleaning practices of surgical instruments. Local hospitals identified that fine lumen suction tubes used in surgery posed a high risk of patient-to-patient cross-infection due to being too difficult to clean.

In response, the company developed one of the most comprehensive ranges of single use suction tubes in collaboration with clinicians. Each instrument has been designed to capture the same look, feel and functionality of their reusable equivalent, while at the same time ensuring cost and efficiency savings.

Headquartered in Cardiff, today the company’s mission is to enable safer operations and improved patient outcomes through the provision of high-quality surgical solutions.

Today, Eakin Surgical are part of Eakin Healthcare Group, established since 1974 with an extensive heritage and experience in the UK manufacturing and supply of medical products to the healthcare industry. Their vision is to put safety first, while providing sustainable outcome-led solutions that can be used in operating rooms worldwide to address modern healthcare challenges.

As part of the national response to COVID-19, the company recently partnered with global supplier Survitec to package and sterilise 1.92 million items of PPE to protect healthcare workers. As a manufacturer of single-use instruments, Eakin Surgical’s aims have been to help clinicians protect patients by providing assurances of instrument performance and sterility. With the associated environmental impact of single-use devices, eco awareness and sustainability remain part of the company’s core values.

Over the past five years Eakin Surgical have significantly reduced their carbon footprint through their supply chain. The company have invested in green energy, recyclable packaging, and reduced product waste from their manufacturing process to 0.03%.

All products manufactured by Eakin Surgical are certified to ISO 13485, Directive 93/42/EEC and FDA approved.
