CAN-med Healthcare has been selected the Canadian distributor of leading Sterilwave technology


CAN-med Healthcare, a Canadian value-added distributor of medical/surgical, health imaging, dental and mobility products, has been named by Bertin Technologies, a developer and supplier of highly technological equipment, as the exclusive reseller of the Sterilwave 440 waste management system.

The Sterilwave is a revolutionary machine which sterilizes bio-hazardous waste in an environmentally safe and conscious manner. The result is ordinary solid waste that no longer poses a threat to humans or the environment. This fully automated system provides a greatly reduced risk of exposure to bio-hazardous material for hospital staff as it requires no intermediate handling. The breakdown of materials is environmentally friendly with no liquid effluent or hazardous emission.

This product was designed for placement in hospitals and clinics where bio-hazardous waste requires treatment. It reduces costs within the medical facility by eliminating the need for special transport of dangerous materials. The by-product of this process is harmless solid waste which can be disposed of by traditional methods. The Sterilwave reduces waste volume and weight for easy and cost effective removal.

“We are excited to bring this innovative product and all of its environmental benefits to the Canadian healthcare market” said Jim Ritcey, National Director of Sales & Marketing, Medical/Surgical Division, CAN-med Healthcare. “We believe this technology will change the landscape of bio-hazardous waste management within hospitals and increase safety, efficiency and environmental awareness.”

“The partnership between Bertin and CAN-med Healthcare is a perfect fit,” said Boguslaw Lorecki, Manager, Bertin Technologies. “Both companies are pushing the boundaries of innovative healthcare products offered. We believe CAN-med Healthcare, with their strong distribution channel, will ensure Sterilwave is a success in Canada and open the door for a new type of biomedical waste management.”
