In May 2004, a team of 10 doctors, dentists and nurses spent two weeks in Uganda, providing free healthcare to the local population in the city of Kampala. In need of a compact autoclave for easy transport, organizers from the Korean Church of Queens in New York contacted SciCan for a STATIM.
Generator-powered STATIM “great”
“Thanks to your donation, we were able to help a lot of people in need,” wrote Soo J. Han, DMD, a member of the team. “The STATIM sterilizer worked great! It was almost hard to believe we were using such a machine in that kind of environment where there was no electricity or running water. We used a generator and a converter for power.”
