The Texas A & M Veterinary Medical Center opened its doors to its new
equine and large animal hospital. They used the opportunity to consolidate
storage and improve hygiene in this 140,000 square foot facility by installing
Unicell®, a flexible materials storage and handling
Unicell provides the Texas A & M Medical Center with durable, water
resistant, supply storage and distribution systems for treating patients such
as: horses, cows, sheep and goats.
Sterility and ease of cleaning were major factors
in the decision to use Unicell. Working in a constantly wet environment, there
was concern about possible germs and infection contaminating the animals.
Unicell meets and exceeds these challenges with smooth, easy to clean, sterile
surfaces which withstand washing temperatures of up to 180 degrees F. (82
degrees C). The one-piece construction of each Unicell component eliminates
hidden grooves or slots which could potentially trap bacteria and germs. For
superior sanitation, Unicell units even withstand industrial cleaning chemicals.
Another major benefit of the Unicell system
is its flexible design. With areas ranging from exam rooms to treatment and
recovery stalls, a large animal benefits tremendously from a modular, mobile
storage and handling system. Unicell units can be mounted on rails, transported
by dolly, or fitted with casters to form mobile carts. Over 200 Unicell units
outfit this Texas-sized facility.
Taking advantage of Unicell's mobility options, the hospital uses under
counter storage cabinets, crash carts, medication carts, mobile work stations,
and instrument tables for surgery.
Hanging wall units in the animal wards provide a space-efficient storage
supply system. Patients can have customized units with interchangeable drawers,
shelves, and interior components, to meet their individual treatment needs.
The strength of structural foam
injection-molded plastic really stands up under the wear and tear of the busiest
days at the hospital. Yet, Unicell medication carts and supply storage units are
lightweight and easy to use for all types of treatment applications.
"The extra large capacity provides room for our bulkiest equipment and
supplies, without compromising strength," stated a Professor of Large Animal
Medicine. Value-Added Service
Behind every Unicell
installation is an exclusive Unicell representative committed to providing
custom facility planning, installation service, and overall customer assistance.
Since the Unicell system was installed at the veterinarian clinic, the Unicell
representative has returned to exchange components and assist with changing the
products' configurations. By combining a flexible design with superior customer
support, Unicell delivers an effective materials handling system that's designed
to accommodate change and made to last.
