STERIS wanted to create a more accessible, cost-effective sterilizer that would accommodate hospital environments that lack the need and/or space for a larger system. The design team was also challenged to create an adaptable, compact medical device sterilizer while remaining consistent with the design language, user interface, and sterilization method of the V-PRO® maX Sterilization System. The resulting STERIS V-PRO 60 Low Temperature Sterilization System is an innovative sterile processing department (SPD) solution that offers hospitals the productivity and flexibility they require to reprocess their medical devices. Transforming the standard of low-temperature sterilization, the V-PRO 60 Sterilizer is the only 60 liter sterilization system on the market that can be utilized as a cart-mounted or countertop medical device sterilizer. By offering twice the sterilization capacity as its competitors, the V-PRO 60 Sterilizer maximizes central supply and operating room productivity. The full-length top and side panels allow the service person to have complete access to all serviceable components while the front and back panels are used to mount components at the top. The device is extremely easy to use and is safe for the environment, patients and user. The productivity, material compatibility, and low cost of ownership.
