There are a lot of useful infection control devices out there. I just reviewed the MULTIsteril automated ultrasonic washer by Tecno-Gaz. It is NOT a sterilizer like the name might imply but it IS an automatic ultrasonic that fills, adds detergent, degases the solution, then ultrasonically cleans, rinses and dries items. Kind of like an even smaller Hydrim C51WDby SciCan, but with a few distinct differences.Both prepare instruments for sterilization with automated wash, rinse and dry processes. The Hydrim uses high impingement jets of flowing alkaline detergent, whereas the MULTIsteril uses an ultrasonic bath.
In comparison, the Hydrim C51WD is a more thorough process and better value overall.
It is nice to have another automatic option to fill the gap for body artists between manual cleaning, ultrasonic and Hydrim automated washers. They are both in the same price range, and the http://piercers.com/pro/ic and in the US at http://statim.us/
Another option for cleaning is the Hygea line from ULTRAWAVE. Not fully automated, but a significant step up from the common benchtop ultrasonic.
