...using UV sanitizers and kitchen pressure cookers in attempt to sterilize their instruments. These small businesses need FDA listed autoclaves, but they can't afford them.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) July 17, 2013
Today, Revolutionary Science, the manufacturer of the Saniclave 200 announced its plan to increase the Saniclave autoclave product line with more American Made, FDA approved low cost autoclaves. Since typical FDA approved table top autoclaves are found to be expensive (most small units ranging from $5,000 to $10,000), many small businesses and clinics have difficulty affording or replacing them. The Saniclave 200 was designed to combat this problem with its promotional price point of $999.
Isaac Erickson of Revolutionary Science states, “Autoclave manufacturers, like Gettinge and SciCan make wonderful small autoclaves, but their prices are high. They can be too expensive for many small clinics, tattoo shops and nail salons to afford.” During the interview, Mr Erickson also explained that second hand autoclaves can be problematic, due to the fact that old autoclaves, although inexpensive, are rarely compliant with modern federal and local regulations. “The answer to this dilemma, is that the market needs more affordable, new autoclaves. What is unique about our autoclaves is that we not only build them here in America, but they also comply with all of the regulations set forth by the FDA and IEC,”
“We see that releasing other affordable autoclave models is imperative. There are tattoo shops and nail salons out there that are using UV sanitizers and kitchen pressure cookers in attempt to sterilize their instruments. These small businesses need FDA listed autoclaves, but they can't afford them,” states Eric Kaari, a key member of Revolutionary Science's research and development team.
With increased focus and attention to steam sterilization technology, Revolutionary Science also plans to increase production of their Saniclave 200. New Saniclave models that range in size and price will soon be available.
Revolutionary Science is pleased with the sudden popularity of the recently released 10 liter Saniclave 200. In an interview with Revolutionary Science's staff, they expressed excitement about new FDA approved autoclaves that should be hitting the market within the next few months.
