EPA Safer Choice
As a U.S. manufacturer of products for patient care, Case Medical is committed to sustainability, safety, and effectiveness. Our workplace is environmentally preferred. We use safer components in our manufacturing process, recycle waste, avoid the use of hazardous chemicals, and use high purity water only in our manufacturing processes.
Case Medical proudly displays the U.S. EPA Safer Choice label on its instrument chemistries and cleaners. In 2017, Case Medical was named a U.S. EPA Safer Choice Partner of the Year for the third year since the inception of the Safer Choice program. Since 2011 under the U.S. EPA Design for the Environment (DfE) umbrella, our company independently validates our instrument chemistries to meet the rigorous standards for safety, effectiveness and environmental preference set by the Environmental Protection Agency.
According to the U.S. EPA website, “Companies who make products carrying the Safer Choice label have invested heavily in research and reformulation to ensure that their products meet the Safer Choice Standard. These companies are leaders in safer products and sustainability.” Learn more.
