Safety with Savings….
The World’s First Strong Alkali Free Absorbent… A Patient Safety First
AMSORB® PLUS is a new generation carbon dioxide absorbent, free from strong alkali metal hydroxides. It absorbs carbon dioxide (CO2) from cellular respiration during anaesthesia and unlike other absorbents it is not capable of degrading vaporous anaesthetic agent.
AMSORB® PLUS is specifically designed for low and minimal flow anaesthesia and is supported by an extensive bibliography of peer-reviewed journals.

Advantages of using AMSORB® PLUS
Free from Strong Alkali
AMSORB® PLUS does not contain sodium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide or barium hydroxide
Unreactive with Modern Anaesthetic Drugs
AMSORB® PLUS does not degrade volatile anaesthetic agents
Eliminates Production of Toxic By-products
AMSORB® PLUS does not generate carbon monoxide under any clinical conditions
AMSORB® PLUS does not generate Compound A, or any similar compounds, when used with sevoflurane
AMSORB® PLUS does not generate formaldehyde when used with sevoflurane
Irreversible Colour Change
AMSORB® PLUS does not contain strong alkali and, therefore, preserves its colour change once exhausted; unlike conventional carbon dioxide absorbents which, once exhausted, revert to their original colour
