Advanced ultrasonic cleaning systems are a pivotal piece of equipment by providing the first stage in the decontamination process of instruments within the Healthcare sector as they improve overall infection control and productivity by providing a more efficient and safer method to manual cleaning.

Our advanced ultrasonic cleaning for surgical equipment, medical implements and dental cleaning industries physically removes blood-based proteins, bacteria and other contaminants from medical instruments.

Using an Alphasonics ultrasonic cleaning system to clean your medical equipment ensures that the joints and crevices are reached and all prion proteins are removed.
