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 system.
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
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
"The extra large capacity provides room for our bulkiest
equipment and supplies, without compromising strength," stated a Professor of Large Animal Medicine.
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
