Medical Air Technology (MAT) recently supplied one of its unique lay-up cabinets to Nu/field Health Chichester Hospital as part of its ongoing relationship with the Nu/field Group. The lay-up cabinet was installed in the Sterile Pack Store (SPS) that serves the hospital's new operating theatres so the space could also be used as a prep room: an SPS does not in itself offer enough air changes to allow for the safe laying-up of instruments prior to surgical procedures, but the addition of MAT's lay-up cabinet. designed specifically for this purpose, has created an area where instruments can be easily and safely laid-up, ready for use.
Requiring only 1,4m of free wall space and minimal installation time. the lay-up cabinet is the perfect solution when space is limited, but infection control essential. It also helps operating theatres to run more efficiently by supporting the hospital's infection control regimen and reducing downtime due to contamination issues. The newest and most advanced version of the cabinet. as installed at Nu/field Health Chichester, is available in three sizes, and features an electronic control panel. adjustable fan speed, integral LED lighting and a high quality powder-coated finish, designed to complement any theatre prep room.
