Learn about the multiple benefits that 3M Single-Patient Use Rolls offer you and your patients

Single-patient use 3M™ Medical Tapes are much more economical than traditional 10 yard rolls:

--Dedicating one roll per patient reduces the risk of cross-contamination*

*CDC guidelines increasingly suggest that some items, such as adhesive tapes, should not be shared between patients.
