Ventilated Autopsy Table

The AFOS Ventilated Autopsy Table is designed to protect the end user. A peripheral extraction system around the perimeter of the table controls the risk of exposure to airborne pathogens and odours. The ergonomic design ensures clear access to the body.

The Ventilated Autopsy Table with rapid transfer system, featuring a fully integrated roller system, minimises manual handling during transfer from body store to table.
