Community Contributions: High-Tech Steam Autoclave Donated by CSS to The University of Wisconsin’s School of Veterinary Medicine
Consolidated Sterilizer Systems is proud to announce a recent company donation to the University of Wisconsin’s School of Veterinary Medicine. Our SR-24D-ADVPRO steam autoclave was gifted this spring and successfully delivered and installed in early summer.
About The UW School of Veterinary Medicine:
Founded in 1983 on the University’s main campus, Wisconsin’s veterinary program aims to “enhance the health and welfare of both animals and people and contribute to the economic well-being of the state of Wisconsin.” The school is outfitted with a full-service teaching hospital (UW Veterinary Care) and exceptional classroom space where education, research, and clinical practice and service take place.
Each year, 80 students are trained across the school’s four departments in pursuit of a four-year DVM degree, with some extending their education with graduate research training or dual degree options. Today, this program is known as one of the most respected in the United States, consistently producing high-caliber veterinarians and innovative animal science research.
About the CSS Steam Autoclave Donation:
Prior to this gift, the University of Wisconsin already housed a variety of CSS-manufactured autoclaves in their campus hospital, School of Medicine and Public Health, and Nursing School. However, due to recent funding restraints the University could not afford a new steam autoclave for its School of Veterinary Medicine. Through our local sales representative, Jamie Steiner of DAI Scientific, the University requested assistance from Consolidated Sterilizer Systems.
Recognizing the University’s funding challenges and the limitations it placed on faculty and students alike, CSS President and CEO Arthur Trapotsis supported the gifting of an autoclave to the University.
In collaboration with the University, Trapotsis and Steiner identified CSS’ Model-SR-24D-ADVPRO as the proper unit to serve the institution’s Surgical Science Department. The autoclave was supplied with a loading cart, transfer carriage, and color touchscreen controller. It will be used to run various loads such as liquids, wrapped goods, and glassware.
According to Kyle Buchmann, managing senior director of development at the University of Wisconsin Foundation, “this tool will help our students learn proper methods in our training hospital and we are very thankful to have a partner in Consolidated Sterilizer Systems as we all work to educate the next generation of veterinarians.”
With this gift, CSS hopes to inspire and empower the bright minds of the students and faculty it will be serving. “I am so pleased that Consolidated Sterilizer Systems can contribute to this institution’s mission and future successes,” said Trapotsis.
