Using ultrasound to clean medical instruments

16 septiembre 2015

A pioneering ultrasonic device can significantly improve the cleaning of medical instruments and reduce contamination and risk of infection, researchers have demonstrated. StarStream makes water more efficient for cleaning by creating tiny bubbles which automatically scrub surfaces. The device supplies a gentle stream of water through a nozzle that generates ultrasound and bubbles, which dramatically improve the cleaning power of water reducing the need for additives and heating.
