A STERIS spokesman said: “Point-of-use processing allows the more rapid turnaround of equipment, reducing the need for a large and expensive equipment inventory. The compact SYSTEM 1 EXPRESS offers extensive critical and semi-critical medical device reprocessing capabilities, including multi-channel flexible surgical endoscopes, and the neutral pH S40 Sterilant Concentrate helps to minimise potential corrosion of delicate equipment. Using two quick rinse cycles to reduce energy and water consumption, it provides rapid access to vital equipment, offering a practical, economical and environmentally-friendly solution to help maintain tight surgical schedules.”
