Envomed team helps HUSLAB unlock Envomed 80 performance advantages during Helsinki visit


The Envomed team travelled to Helsinki last week, to help the HUSLAB team unlock all of the performance advantages offered by the Envomed 80 sustainable on-site medical waste treatment solution installed at the HUS Helsinki University Hospital.

The visit was focused around bespoke-designed product training – not only on the functionality and maintenance of the Envomed machine, but also on the Performance Verification processes that allows HUSLAB to be confident the Envomed 80 is successfully sterilizing their waste to STAATT level IV each and every time.

“The sessions with the HUSLAB team were incredibly productive, offering important insights into how to drive optimal performance from their Envomed 80 on-site medical waste treatment machine.” David Segev, CEO, Envomed

Our sessions with the HUSLAB team were incredibly productive, offering important insights into how to drive optimal performance from their Envomed 80 on-site medical waste treatment machine.

It is always exciting to demonstrate the most powerful features of the Envomed 80, including its ability to treat high-content, liquid phase infectious waste and of course the performance verification process.

We look forward to seeing the HUSLAB team achieving fantastic, sustainable savings – both in terms of cost, and environmental footprint – through the optimal performance of their Envomed 80”.
