validation services provided by Andersen Scientific.
Products was founded in 1958. It began its medical business in Oyster
Bay, New York in 1963 with the manufacture of a new design for a
stomach tube. The need to sterilize these tubes led to the development
of our Anprolene line of Ethylene Oxide sterilizers. Today the product
line includes gastric sump tubes, wound drains and pumps, thoracic
pumps, and three types of gas sterilizers (Anprolene, EOGas and
Sterijet), with their associated chemical and biological sterilization
monitors. In addition to the efforts of its own direct sales force
in the U.S., the company sells to affiliated Andersen British, French,
and California corporations, and distributors in many foreign countries.
Over 50 years leading the gas

of over 6,000 healthcare-related facilities around the world,
such as hospitals, day surgery centers, veterinary clinics, research

Within the United States, we sell gas sterilizers and gas sterilization equipment (EtO sterilization) directly to end-users and through
a select group of distributors. Andersen conducts business with
distributors in every continent and subcontinent. From mobile
field hospitals in developing countries to the most sophisticated
tertiary care institutions on the globe -- Andersen is there.
Constant evolution of gas sterilizers and surgical tubing
company was founded by Dr. Harold W. Andersen,
a surgeon from New York and our current Chairman. Dr. Andersen
invented a better apparatus for gastric drainage in the course
of his clinical work at Bellevue Hospital in New York City. His
colleagues began asking for the new devices, which led to the
formation of Andersen Products, or Anpro®. Over the years,
the company has maintained its focus on providing cutting-edge
technology for niche healthcare applications. To maintain our
leadership position in the industry, we have assembled a scientific
advisory board comprised of distinguished specialists in Human
and Veterinarian Medicine, Surgery, Sterilization and Validation,
