The SST system is a three-part container designed for the safe retrieval of contaminated instruments in compliance with OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogen Guidelines. The system includes a solid base tray, internal drain basket and splash-proof cover. In use, the SST collects soiled instruments, and then is transported to the decontamination site. There the drain basket with contents is removed and placed into the decontamination system without personnel directly handling the contaminated instruments. SST Systems are available in 12 autoclavable sizes. Accessories include closed transport carts, drain plugs, biohazard locks, and positive closure latches.
