We sterilize our general surgical instruments, Storz endoscopes and those related to arthroscopic surgeries in our gas sterilizer. We have a fair number of plastic instruments we sterilize as well, such as drains. Those items would melt in a steam sterilizer.
We custom make various sizes of plastic tubing for our large patients so our Andersen unit is great for sterilizing them before use. The length of the chamber is critical as it holds all our larger instruments and scopes.”
