Medical Supplies: Just What the Doctor Ordered

Medical supplies these days aren’t all about Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), even if it may seem like that when you watch the news. Sonic Supply offers a variety of medical equipment and supplies (yes, including PPE!) for doctor’s offices, veterinary offices, labs, clinics and other care centers.

For the Exam Room

When many people think about going to their doctor’s appointment, the first images that come to mind are stethoscopes for listening to the heart and other organs, and sphygmomanometers for measuring blood pressure. Sonic offers both, as well as a blood pressure monitoring kit for students that includes a teaching stethoscope and an aneroid sphygmomanometer.

For testing patellar and other reflexes, we offer a reflex hammer.

While not technically PPE, non-contact infrared thermometers have become important tools during the COVID-19 pandemic. Unlike traditional thermometers that can spread bacteria and viruses, non-contact thermometers measure temperature from a safe distance. They can be used to identify infection and reduce risk in medical offices and clinics, when reopening businesses and in the home for a fast and easy way to check temperatures.

For Medical Labs

Blood work and other medical tests often use centrifuges. Centrifuges accommodate several different types of sample holders, including microtubes and conical tubes.  The centrifuge tubes are then spun and the centrifugal force separates the red blood cells, plasma and platelets. It is crucial to do this and if not, the chemical compositions of the samples risk being altered.

Options include compact bench-top models and high-speed micro-centrifuges. Some, like the DLab D3024R, even offer a refrigeration capability.

PPE & Safety Apparel

Whether used in a doctor’s office, clinic, lab or other research setting, safety is always a primary concern. Sonic can outfit medical professionals, lab workers, first responders and essential workers with safety apparel and PPE to protect against hazardous materials and airborne particles.

Safety Apparel Aprons

Apparel like aprons, lab coats and protective goggles are essentials for many medical facilities.

Gloves and disposable masks are certainly important right now, whether in the medical profession or not. Many patient-facing medical and dental personal currently wear face shields when in proximity to patients.

Supplies For Medical Students

Dissection – something often familiar to high school students – requires instruments such as forceps, scalpels, blades, scissors and teasing needles.
