Packaging contributes to infection control

Nosocomial and other hospitalacquired infections have been hitting the head-lines in recent times. Infections are a high risk in surgical or dental operations, whether these are major or minor procedures. All multi-use supplies and instruments need to be
carefully cleaned, maintained and sterilized after each use prior to the next operation. Disposable items and sets are gaining more volume on account of their economy and safety aspects.

The Steriking® family of products is carefully designed for the packaging needs of hospitals, dentists and laundries. They offer reliable performance and pack integrity in clinical conditions where patient safety is paramount. The wide range of types, shapes and sizes available facilitates optimal selection for every kind of application. The Steriking® brand stands for high quality. The products are obtainable through appointed exclusive distributors in over 70 countries – a family that is steadily growing.
