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 CNN
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
