Daniels Robotic Washline Technology
Daniels reusable sharps containers are emptied and sanitized at Daniels' clean processing facilities using its Washsmart system, a fully automated, robotic system used for decanting, washing, sanitizing and drying the containers. Our Washsmart system provides highly effective washing and sanitizing of all Sharpsmart containers.
"The Washsmart cleaning process was independently tested by coating 17 Gallon Medismart bins with 6-log blood suspensions of Staph aureus and E. Faecalis. On swabbing them after the wash, no challenge organisms were detected - this is a very high level of decontamination."

Blood and human-source soiling are completely removed and the inside of the collector is made safe for handling.
Daniels’ Washsmart system has been extensively researched, tested and independently verified as achieving a
level of sanitization 4x higher than required by the CDC in the United States.
Quality Control Parameters
The time, temperature and water volumes necessary to achieve this level of cleaning are closely monitored.
If any parameter falls outside Daniels set criteria, the Washsmart machine immediately shuts itself down so it can be repaired.
The Washsmart process also passes the stringent Ninhydrin test – a forensic-level test to detect traces of protein or blood.
