Cost-efficient sterilization with Getinge’s new steam sterilizer Solsus 66
Getinge Solsus 66 is a versatile, intuitive and easy to use steam sterilizer. Built on robust technology, this sustainable and energy efficient sterilizer answers to the needs of hospitals looking for balance in capacity and cost-efficiency in the Central Sterile Supply Department (CSSD).
Sterilization plays a critical role in hospitals and a successful CSSD requires efficient sterilizers with quality components. Medtech supplier Getinge, with a long history of expertise within sterile reprocessing, now presents the new steam sterilizer Solsus 66.
“Especially now, when fighting with the COVID-19 pandemic, health care organizations are facing strong operational and financial challenges. Sterilization units have to reprocess surgical instruments in a flawless manner in order to manage an increasing backlog of surgeries. Solsus 66 was designed with these challenges in mind,” says Stéphane Le Roy, President Surgical Workflows at Getinge. “This sterilizer is a great concentrate of technological know-how by Getinge, with a real engineering focus on cost efficiency.”
Solsus 66 can be used for general purpose steam sterilization of surgical instruments, textiles, and hospital utensils with a temperature range of 121°C to 134°C.
“Our new sterilizer complies with all relevant standards, and a pass-through design reduces the risk of cross-contamination between clean and soiled zones. The hygienic design is reliable and well-tested, built on Getinge’s many years of experience in the CSSD,” tells Karolina Olofsson, Product Manager Steam Sterilization at Getinge.
“The construction of Solsus 66 is space-saving with a vertically sliding door, making it easy to install and has quick access for service. However, it still offers large chamber volumes from 449 up to 899 liters, enabling a high throughput. It also comes with a high-resolution touchscreen that offers a clear overview from different angles in the control area.”
It is part of Getinge’s environmental objectives to produce sterilizers with a low energy consumption and to reduce the impact on the climate. Solsus 66 is an example of how smart technology solutions are used to keep energy consumption low. Solsus 66’s optional ECO system goes one step further by reducing water requirements to the vacuum pump and separating waste-water from recyclable cooling water.
