For more than a quarter century Red Bag Solutions has provided innovative technology, equipment and services for on-site processing of medical and bio-hazardous waste. The company has manufactured and sold its patented Steam Sterilization and Maceration (SSM) systems throughout the world. In November 2011, RBS launched its patent-pending Ozone Sterilization and Maceration (OSM) system for specific applications. Like SSM technology, OSM processed waste is sterile, safe and unrecognizable. It can be recycled or disposed of with ordinary municipal trash. Red Bag Solutions' customers include hospitals and healthcare facilities, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, and diagnostic laboratories and research facilities. We realize that every facility's requirements are unique, and we work hard to make sure that those specific requirements are met.
Red Bag Solutions' patented Steam Sterilization and Maceration (SSM) technology is the basis of our unique bioharzardous waste processing system. It is designed for safe, efficient and cost effective processing of:
- Biological agents and infectious materials
- Needles, syringes and disposable surgical instruments
- Contaminated plastics
- Sharps containers/needle boxes
- Confidential media and proprietary materials
- Blood products and body fluids
- Pathogens: bacterial, viral, fungi or proteinaceous infectious agents
- Contaminated animal carcasses (less than 40 pounds) and animal bedding
- Some pharmaceuticals
SSM processed waste is sterilized, safe and no longer recognizable as medical waste. Therefore, it can be recycled or disposed of as ordinary municipal trash. Unlike medical waste incinerators and autoclaves, SSM processing is free of objectionable odors and does not release any negative air emissions. It is more environmentally friendly and less costly than any other on-site medical waste management alternative.
