I believe sterilization is a very important reason why you should choose an artist. Needle barrels are what get sterilized after each use, needles are also sterilized but only from initial manufacturing of each needle, then they are disposed of in a sharps collector and disposed of at a later date.

***needles are a 1 time use only – no exceptions***

There are 3 important steps to maintaining a clean and sterile environment in the hive:

1st step....Ultrasonically cleaned in a branson tm. Cleaner with alconox solution.

2nd step....40 mins in a ritter m7 speedclave autoclave (actual autoclave shown).

3rd step....Kept in defend tm. Sterilization pouch until its ready for use.
