We currently use the microclave. We have a relatively high number of occlusions. Otherwise we are content with the product. We do have a zero CRBSI rate with the product. We have considered the RyMed product and I was inpressed by the flat surface. If you do not mind sharing, What types of problems are you having with the RyMed product? You may email me directly if you do not wish to explain on this forum. Thanks,  [email protected]
