Doctors with Heads and Hearts: Wonca 2016

Wonca (World Organization of Family Doctors) is a European conference for the general practitioner, which this year is in Copenhagen’s Bella center, June 15-18, 2016.

 The chosen theme for the conference is: Family Doctors with Heads and Hearts. As a provider of decontamination and sterilization equipment we can relate to this with a strong belief that even with a technical process such decontamination and sterilization it is not only the head that is involved, the heart is sometimes what makes the difference between good and excellent.

Tuttnauer will display its line of tabletop autoclaves for clinics. We will showcase the 2340EA-D autoclave, which is the perfect autoclave for a general practitioner. For clinics that have more complicated treatments, we will offer the Elara Class B autoclave, that is equipped with a powerful vacuum pump. In addition to the autoclaves we will show an ultrasonic cleaner to emphasize that proper cleaning is of major importance as a preceding step to sterilization. Last we will introduce a sealing machine to promote the wrapping of instruments before sterilization  in order to be able to keep them sterile when stored for a longer period of time.

We invite all visitors of Wonca 2016 to stop by Tuttnauer’s booth and learn about our full spectrum of decontamination and sterilization products specially tailored to the practitioner clinic. You will meet our friendly and professional staff who will be happy to answer any questions you might have about proper sterilization for clinic practitioners. 

We’re leaving you with a taste for more with the beautiful video produced for the conference:

Hope to see you at Wonca 2016 smiley
