Compacta Steril Test Report, Poland August 2019
The aim of the study was to assess the effectiveness of the CompactaSteril ultra clean air system. According to the assumption, the examined device should significantly reduce the risk of contamination of the treatment and operational field. The correctness of this assumption was tested on a small animal’s model under simulated conditions in the treatment room.
