Life Science Washer Disinfectors

Why use washer disinfectors within an animal facility?

A washer disinfector for life sciences is used to improve and support the animal technicians with the important job of animal husbandry ensuring awareness to all applicable home office guidelines and AALAC requirements at all times to promote the health and wellbeing of animals and staff. The primary function of the washer is to remove all organic and uric scale deposits from the caging, tanks and bottles to ensure no cross contamination occurs.
