Vet Tech Tips – Short Video Series
In this video series an experienced veterinary technician gives tips on how to get the most from your sterilizer. Each video is 2 minutes or less and focuses on topics designed to make your job easier.
12 Hour Exposure Cycle
Designed to achieve FDA-required 10-6 sterility assurance level for terminal sterilization of most medical devices.
17.6g EO Ampoule
Terminal sterility with 90% less EO than any other system on the market. Hermetically sealed glass EO ampoule protects from accidental activation.
Active Aeration in the Same Chamber
Andersen’s purge probe flushes the liner bag with a constant flow of fresh air at the end of the cycle – no need to transfer items to a separate area. Two hours of aeration standard. EO-absorbent items may require additional aeration. Active aeration continues indefinitely until products are removed.
Make Your System Zero Emissions
Andersen abators are a simple, cartridge-based system that employ a dry catalyst resin. The resin converts ethylene oxide to biodegradable organic compounds. Replaceable abator cartridge has a 200 cycle capacity. Spent cartridges are non-hazardous.
Smart Cabinet Design
A interior ventilation port in the back of the chamber actively draws fresh air from the room throughout the entire cycle. Ensuring air flow in one direction and minimizing potential operator exposure.
Requires only a 120v or 240v outlet and a 1″ dedicated exhaust line.
Anprolene’s 100% EO system sterilizes at room temperature without external vacuum lines or steam generator. Protects your most delicate instruments, electronics, drills, fiber optics, hand pieces and cameras. As well as those plastic, fabric, cellulose or rubber items that you can’t sterilize with other methods. Most any item with the exception of food, drugs or liquids can be sterilized with Anprolene.
Free Operator Training
It’s like having a sterilization expert on staff! Free operator training for the life of your sterilizer and free 24/7 support.

I have been a client for 21 years. Currently we use the gas sterilizer daily. We sterilize EVERY endo-tracheal tube, feeding tubes, suction tubes, staplers and some suture material. Technically, any surgical item which cannot be steam sterilized is processed easily by our instrument technicians. It is very nice to be able to sterilize items which are expensive, yet reusable. I would recommend this product without reservation.”
Owner & Founder
As a practice owner, Anprolene was the simplest economic decision I ever had to make. Anprolene has helped our new and growing hospital save so much money by extending the life of our instruments and giving us the ability to sterilize specific items that might otherwise be ruined with high temperature or chemical sterilization.”

This is the second time I’ve used an Andersen sterilizer. I bought one 12 years ago as I was doing laparoscopic surgery. I’ve recently opened my second practice and I’ve just installed one.”
We’ve always used Andersen. I’ve had nothing but perfect customer service from them for my entire career. We call, they help us out with whatever we need – any minor problems, questions, concerns – they’re always there for us. Excellent customer service keeps me coming back.”

I love the Anprolene Sterilizer I have!
My students are always amazed at the expansive list of items recommended to be sterilized by EtO. I strive to help them understand how the system can benefit their practice and actually save them money.
Thank you so much for the user-friendly equipment, great training and unmatched technical support. I don’t know what I would do without it.”

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.
Our Anprolene line is quite simply the most affordable on the market – both in terms of cost to purchase and per cycle.
Space-saving designs fit conveniently on a countertop or table. Plus, a large chamber for sterilizing more at one time.
Terminal sterility with zero damage. No high heat, steam, deep vacuum, oxidation or corrosion.
Easy to use
The simple interface makes using our sterilizers a breeze. Set it and forget it. Plus free training for life.
