How quickly did you see a return on investment for your Andersen Sterilizer?

(In the 20 years Dr. Hunstad has been an Andersen customer, he has used both the Anprolene system and the EOGas 4 heated-cycle system.)

Anprolene: “They recoup their value within a couple of weeks.” [Watch]

EOGas 4: “We probably recouped the benefit from that within a couple of months.” [Watch]

– Dr. Hunstad

What do you sterilize in your Andersen system?

When very delicate instruments are run through repeated steam sterilization cycles, they deteriorate. They tend to fail. They get worn. Rust occurs because of the water environment and it’s really a problem.” [Watch]

“Steam autoclaving really deteriorates the quality of (delicate instruments), whereas gas autoclaving is fantastic because it preserves the sharpness and integrity of these instruments.” [Watch]

– Dr. Hunstad

“Items we can’t put into an autoclave – fiberoptic equipment, fiberoptic cords, plastic cords, disposable fiberoptic equipment, and plastic equipment we try to use more than once. We use it for gauze, for all metal equipment as well but, in particular, plastic equipment and fiberoptic equipment – it works very, very well.” [Watch]

“It holds five times what we can in a typical Midmark autoclave.” [Watch]
