Schwabmünchen, Germany: – Ritter Medical, leading manufacturer of liquid handling and robotic consumables products, has posted an online video demonstration of its versatile sterilization container system.

The polySteribox® containers are available in a range of sizes and shapes and are constructed from technically advanced plastics.

Secure and hygienic

The video shows how the boxes are designed to be securely locked, sealed and labeled; hygienically handled and with a stackable shape for optimum fitment into sterilization cabinets.

The video, posted on the Ritter website, is available as mp4 (Apple QuickTime) or wmv (Windows Media Viewer) download files.

Advanced design and construction

“This is a video we made some time ago for direct presentation that not many people have been able to watch”, said Ritter’s Key Account Manager Andreas Rauch.

“By posting it online, we are allowing the whole world to see just how well designed and constructed these boxes really are”, he added.

Clinical products

The polySteribox® is just one of the Ritter Medical advanced plastics range featured in the company’s updated Clinical Products brochure, which is also downloadable online from the Ritter site.

The 25,000 square meter Ritter manufacturing plant at Schwabmünchen, near Augsburg in southern Bavaria, is one of the most technically advanced plastics facilities in the world, producing some four million items annually. These include liquid handling dispensers and tips, robotic consumable trays and racks.

The containers are also compatible with STERRAD® gas-plasma sterilization.

The combination of high-resistant plastic and sealable form provide effective built-in barriers against germ and bacteria contamination following sterilization.
