We are maintaining around 100 of these units and they seem to be infinitely repairable. 3Ms stopped making the Minos some years ago and for a while the only source was the pre-owned market.
Veterinary Instrumentation is pleased to announce that we have found the engineer who made the original Minos and he is now re-making them exclusively for us. He is also making the bur guards.
The body is machined from solid aluminium and will tolerate much abuse. The bur locking mechanism seems better than the others on the market. New units carry a full 12 months warranty.
The most cost effective way to purchase the Minos is as a set which comprises: A200 motor, medium bur guard and hose. Any other size bur guard may be substituted on request and all products are available separately. The hose is the same
as for the MiniDriver.
The bur guards support the burs and reduce vibration. The Minos and other high speed burs should not be used without an appropriate bur guard. Without the guard, risks to surgeon and patient are significant.
