The ideal solution

As with many aspects of running a busy veterinary practice, the ideal solution is to find the balance between achieving the required level of washing/sterilization, as well as maximising throughput and productivity, at a reasonable capital cost. So, the best solution for most practices is to use the latest generation of washer disinfector in combination with a ‘B’ class vacuum autoclave in line with the EN 13060 standard for the sterilization of pouched, hollow and porous instruments. You may also choose a non-vacuum cycle autoclave (type ‘N’), but these are only suitable for sterilizing non-wrapped, solid items. The Anima autoclave features both vacuum and non vacuum cycles for maximum flexibility in use. Contact us for more information or guidance.
