Autoclaves and sterilizers 

   

It goes without saying, vets must ensure proper sterilization of their medical tools at all times. This is absolutely essential for safe, contamination-free work, but also has the added benefit of extending the life of commonly used instruments, which can otherwise be worn down by organic fluids and harsh chemicals, solvents and cleaners. Autoclave steam sterilization helps ensure that vet tools are satisfactorily disinfected and sterilized, for optimal pet-patient outcomes. Autoclaves come in various sizes. If you are running a high-volume clinic, you may opt to purchase a larger unit to increase efficiency, instead of keeping your autoclave on all day. You may also want to look into buying an automatic or digital autoclave, which enables faster turn-around than its manual version.
