HAMAMATSU, Japan--()--In August 2023, Hamamatsu University Hospital, Hamamatsu Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. and ASP Japan, G.K. jointly conducted a demonstration experiment to operate STERRAD™ (sterilization equipment) using electric power from EVs (electric vehicles) at Hamamatsu University Hospital.

In the event of a disaster where lifelines are cut off, the STERRAD™ can be operated using only electricity, without water or gas, and can immediately begin sterilization operations as soon as power is available. The demonstration tests confirmed that STERRAD™ can operate normally on EV power, and is expected to further contribute to the recovery of the medical system in the event of a disaster or power outage.

At ASP Japan G.K., our customers' success inspires our innovation.
