In-house university research case study
Researchers at a leading university needed to sterilize pollen on a microbial level for a study on bee feeding habits. The sterilization method had to be gentle and effective. The team had been bogged down with a time-intensive process in-house and it didn’t want to risk contamination or delays by sending pollen out to be sterilized.
The university research team purchased an Anprolene AN74i. Anprolene is our most affordable option and the room temperature cycles are gentle enough…well…to sterilize pollen!
The sterilizer has made their process more “efficient and effective” so the doctors and their team can concentrate on what they do best. Note: Many facilities will install an inexpensive Anprolene unit in each lab to eliminate the possibility of cross-contamination.
Why ethylene oxide (EO/EtO) sterilization?
Ethylene oxide is the gold standard in sterilization. It offers hospital-level sterility assurance (10⁻⁶) along with
unparalleled gentleness and material compatibility.
