Astell publishes case study on veterinary autoclave choice
23 Sep 2016
Leading UK autoclave manufacturer, Astell, have published a case study explaining how the Vets Now company were able to find their perfect autoclave from the extensive Astell range.
Vets Now provide out-of- hours and emergency cover for a growing membership of small animal veterinary practices. They also have Emergency & Specialty Hospital facilities, in Glasgow and Swindon, for all pets that require specialist veterinary attention outside the remit of primary veterinary care.
The nature of Vets Now’s business, with its almost constant demand for sterile, surgical instruments, means strict criteria have to be met when it comes to choosing an autoclave.
It has to be efficient and highly reliable, of course, with a short cycle time that leaves surgical instruments touch dry for the Vets. What’s more, space constraints means a small footprint, with maximum internal capacity.
Vets now chose Astell’s compact 125 litre capacity, square section, jacketed autoclave with its space saving upward sliding door and vacuum facilities. Vacuum pumping improves sterilisation by removing air pockets, whole promoting cooling and drying.
