Not all lubricating gels are the same. With OptiLube, we’ve developed a lubricant gel to suit most clinical procedures. By listening to clinicians, the specialists in our UK laboratories have fine-tuned the formulation and perfected the viscosity to create a class IIa sterile lubricating jelly with a range of benefits:
Water soluble and pH balanced Adheres well to gloves and instruments Won’t damage rubber or metal equipment Available in a choice of formats to suit different procedures and clinician preferences
Acoustically correct for the broad range of ultrasound frequencies used today, Vue Ultrasound Gel is also water soluble and hypoallergenic. So it’s a convenient, versatile way to provide optimal transmission in ultrasonic diagnosis, ultrasonic therapy, ECG, EEG and EMG.
As specialists in gels for clinical applications, we’ve formulated Vue Ultrasound Gel to offer the ideal viscosity for a wide variety of procedures. Working with our network of clinical contacts, and responding to their expert feedback, we’ve developed this product to be as effective and easy to use as possible.
Why Vue Ultrasound Gel?
Offers superb ‘standoff’ for superficial scanning Hypoallergenic, water soluble and non-sticky, ensuring maximum patient comfort Doesn’t stain or damage skin, clothing or transducers Contains no salt Excellent viscosity Inhibits the growth of bacteria Available in a range of sizes to suit different situations

Ugo 2L Drainage Bags
Using our long experience in urology products, we’ve developed a complete range of 2L Drainage Bags to meet all patients’ needs, in any clinical environment. The bags have short, easy-to-remember names and numbers, to help clinicians and their patients order the correct ones quickly and easily. Non-sterile options come in tamper-resistant, protective resealable bags ideally suited for storage in the patient’s bedroom or bathroom.
Other features of Ugo 2L Drainage Bags include:
Soft, kink-resistant inlet tubing, secured to ensure leak-free continuous drainage Non-return valve to prevent urine going back up the drainage pipe Reinforced eyelets to ensure level hanging on the bag stand Needle-free sprung sample port, which locks the syringe for safe sample collection (Ugo 12 and Ugo 13) Transparent universal stepped connector for secure fitting into all indwelling catheters or leg bag silicone outlet tubes for overnight link drainage
Supplied with clear, comprehensive information and instructions, Ugo Leg Bags are safe, effective and simple to use. So patients in their own home, and carers in care homes with no nurse on hand, can use them with complete confidence.
We’ve even given the bags short, easy-to-remember names, to help clinicians and their patients order the correct ones quickly and easily.
For added comfort and peace of mind, we’ve also introduced kink-free soft silicone drainage tubing. This fits perfectly with our Ugo 2L Drainage Bags, ensuring patients can move around in bed without blocking or damaging the tubing.
Each bag is available with Lever Tap or T Tap drainage, and with or without fabric backing to suit your patients’ preferences and the clinical environment. With fabric-backed Ugo Leg Bags, you get a pair of Ugo Fix Leg Bag Straps in every box. For those without fabric, there’s a pair of Ugo Fix Leg Bag Straps in every pouch. You can also order boxes of 10 straps separately.
Other features of Ugo Leg Bags include:
