W&H’s Kate Scheer enthuses about the new Assistina TWIN reprocessing unit. In her own words...
There can be no doubt that the ability to deliver efficient, quality patient care and maintain consistently high standards rests on the innovative equipment and tools that are available in modern practice. That is why from inception, W&H has always directed its attention to developing and producing instruments, devices, equipment and technology that will enhance clinicians’ skills and improve patient outcomes.
The latest masterpiece from W&H builds on the tried and tested performance of all its creations and over a century of experience in providing dentists with a solution like nothing ever seen before. It’s called the Assistina TWIN, and is the first reprocessing device to be equipped with two process chambers that can be used alternately. Born out of a combination of the latest technology and W&H’s pioneering vision, this next generation handpiece care and maintenance unit is the answer to a question that most dentists may not even have thought of – it’s the future of handpiece decontamination compliance and preservation.
Unlike other devices on the market, the Assistina TWIN offers a sophisticated dual-chamber system in which you can connect your handpiece while another is being serviced in the adjacent closed chamber. When one is done, you simply need to slide the cover to the other side, and then with a click of a button the process will begin again; handpiece maintenance has never been so easy.
More importantly, however, looking after your handpieces, turbines, air motors and air-driven scalers has never been as efficient as it is with the Assistina TWIN. The continuous workflow that the dual-chamber provides is undoubtedly the driving force behind the unit’s remarkable productivity, but it certainly doesn't hurt that the Assistina TWIN boasts a record cycle time of just 10 seconds.
Indeed, it’s because of this winning combination that it is possible to process up to an enormous 360 handpieces per hour. Together, with the intuitive, easy-to-use design and complete flexibility thanks to a wide range of handpiece adapters, the Assistina TWIN grants complete peace of mind – no waiting time, no hassle, just exceptional results quickly and conveniently.
So what’s the catch? With the Assistina TWIN there are no drawbacks, as it’s also incredibly cost effective to run. One refill contains sufficient oil and solution to maintain approximately 2,800 instruments, and it oils all components efficiently in ten seconds flat to make rotational lubrication a thing of the past. It works by first nebulising the oil before blasting it through the instrument at high pressure so that the fine mist reaches even the most remote parts of the gears without any need for the gearing components to be set in motion first. This is all possible without having to measure the exact amount of oil needed for each instrument, as the Assistina TWIN’s state-of-the-art process monitoring system does this for you.
Of course, none of this matters if you don't have access to reliable technical support, which is why W&H offers nothing short of faultless care and first-rate expertise with total commitment to providing the highest level of technical service. Components can fail, but with access to W&H’s in-house Technical Service Department and team of field-based engineers, unwanted downtime never has to be a concern.
Add W&H’s unwavering reliability, unmatched expertise and refreshing approach to ecological sustainability and you get a solution that, when matched with innovation, can help clinicians take dentistry to the next level. So whether you are looking to enhance treatment outcomes, improve standards or streamline your workflow, the Assistina TWIN is an essential addition to your arsenal.
