CARE & CLEANING OF STAINLESS STEEL INTRODUCTION
Stainless steel is steel alloyed with chromium to make it highly resistant to stain, rust and corrosion. Note: This does NOT mean that stainless steel will never rust or corrode. Science has not yet developed a steel which is completely stainless or corrosion PROOF. The type of stainless steel and finish selected by SSCI for the Total Animal Pens is the best available for the intended use.
At the request of several vets we have compiled a brief guide for cleaning patient circuits. This guide is a simple reference to give you more insight into the cleaning procedures of the circuits. Is the patient circuit wet or damp after surgery? Do you want to avoid cross-contamination of patients? Did you perform a bronchial and/or a bronchoalveolar lavage of an animal? Have several animals used the same circuit without being washed? The time has come to clean the tubes.
Kohler Illumination, developed by August Kohler, is the method used to adjust microscopic illumination to achieve optimum magnification, resolution and contrast. This method is also known as Double Diaphragm Illumination because it employs both a field and an aperture iris diaphragm to set up the illumination. (Your microscope must have both of these diaphragms to do this procedure)
