and "Sterilization" are two words often used interchangeably,
with detrimental results. Andersen's Tabletop and Multi-Load Sterilizers
are true sterilization systems using ethylene oxide (EO) gas. EO
sterilization is a gentle process, unlike using steam or harsh chemicals.
can be sterilized with ethylene oxide, even your most delicate equipment
(endoscopes, optics, computers, long lumens).
In the following
story, we see that the choice to disinfect, instead of sterilize
endoscopes used in colonoscopies led to possible infection among
patients. Instruments can be re-sterilized over and over again with
ethylene oxide, without any damage to the instrument itself. Call
Andersen today to talk to one of our representatives and find out
how you can protect your patients
