Find the right pen for you

The BST DetectaPen has a long standing reputation as being the premier choice of factory writing equipment. Engineer, Brian S Teasdale, first invented the plastic detectable pen in 1994 and we’ve spent the last 27 years improving every aspect. This has resulted in what we believe to be the world’s safest pen for use in food processing areas.

The pen has been designed and shaped in such a way that makes it easy to hold and use; therefore, it is less likely to be dropped. Greater safety and hygiene is also achieved through sweeping advances in material technology - our xdetect® plastic has a truly unique formulation that offers metal detectability, x-ray visibility, shatter resistance, and antibacterial protection in 9 vibrant colours for visual detection and colour co-ordination.

At BST we also offer the highest quality service to match the shine of our products. The BST DetectaPen can be colour pad printed with your company name, logo, or contact details for promotional purposes. We also have the capability to mould your company name on the side of your BST DetectaPen subject to minimum volumes.
