Key Factors to Consider when Evaluating Providers of Medical Chillers

The Increased Utilization of Medical Chillers

The demand for medical chillers has grown significantly over the years. This growth is partially attributed to the expansion of the ambulatory surgery center (ASC) market over the past decade. Medical procedures that were once only undertaken in large hospitals are increasingly being performed in ASCs. As the medical equipment required for these procedures has expanded in scope, the need for medical chillers has risen. When evaluating medical chiller suppliers, procurement staff should seek providers that are experienced, licensed and committed to providing a high quality of product and service.

The Evolution of the Medical Chiller Industry

In the past, medical chillers were primarily used in large hospitals. However, the expansion of the surgery center market and the increasing sophistication of research facilities have led to the expansion of the types of medical facilities that use chillers. Medical chillers are now being used in the following types of health-related facilities:

  • Hospitals
  • Medical centers
  • Ambulatory surgery centers
  • Universities
  • Research facilities
  • Veterinary hospitals

The enhanced scope of medical equipment has spurred some hospitals and large healthcare facilities to procure multiple medical chillers. Facility expansions and the acquisition of new highly specialized medical devices are key contributors to the rising demand for medical chillers. And with a limited number of experienced suppliers in the medical chiller arena, it is more important than ever for procurement staff to enlist the help of a trusted medical chiller provider.

Key Advantages of Renting a Medical Chiller

In many cases, medical chillers are procured without giving sufficient consideration to factors such as size or intended scope of use. In other cases, a medical facility may experience rapid growth and find that it has quickly outgrown their current medical chiller. The rental of a medical chiller provides a cost-effective solution to these potential concerns. Additionally, there are a number of other advantages that are offered with the rental of medical chillers:

  • Servicing and repairs are covered in the price
  • In many cases, rental costs can be written off during tax preparation
  • Ability to quickly and affordably upgrade to a larger model
  • No charge for normal wear and tear
  • Reduced worry for your biomedical maintenance staff

Best of all, renting a medical chiller makes sense for organizations that only require a chiller for a limited time period. After all, very few medical organizations can afford to purchase an expensive, customized item that will only be used for one or two applications. In these instances, it is advantageous to seek a company that specializes in the rental of medical chillers.

The Importance of Industry Experience

When evaluating medical chiller providers, there are three key factors that should be considered. These factors are industry experience, industry approvals or licenses, and a company’s commitment to quality. Procurement staff should seek a provider that is fully insured and ETL-UL listed. They should ask for references and request photos of current inventory to confirm a company’s capabilities. Finally, a company with decades of industry experience is able to offer expertise and product quality that fly-by-night companies are unable to match.
