Countertop Tabletop Sterilizer Cleaning instruments prior to using statim:
Before sterilization or high-level disinfection, instruments should be cleaned so that any debris is removed. Cleaning is a prerequisite to sterilization of eye & dental surgical instruments. Combination or all-in-one enzymatic based cleaning concentrate solutions facilitate effective instrument cleaning. Heavy-duty gloves should be worn for handling contaminated instruments. Instruments should soak in water or disinfectant detergent as soon as possible after use to prevent drying of debris. If the instruments cannot be cleaned soon after use, the application of a ‘combination’ or all-in-one enzymatic foam spray will maintain hydration, prevent encrustation, prevent corrosion, and facilitate cleaning.
Countertop Tabletop Sterilizer Automated cleaning prior to use: Washer Decontaminators Disinfectors may be used to reduce direct handling of contaminated instruments. Automated cleaning will reduce overall costs and facilitate a more rapid turnaround of instruments. Washers provide thorough surface cleaning and flushing inside working channels to eliminate the manual cleaning of lumens and working channels. This will ensure that instruments are consistently clean inside and out, thereby reducing the costs and avoiding the worker risks associated with manual cleaning. New design Washer Decontaminators, such as the M3 Washer Decontaminator, will eliminate costly manual cleaning and are available in compact countertop or undercounter models.
Tabletop Sterilizer and Preventing corrosion of surgical instruments: Using rust inhibitors or an all-in-one enzymatic based cleaning concentrate will protect instruments from corrosion that may result from autoclaving. Thorough rinsing is important to prevent spotting, stains, and accumulation of potentially toxic contaminants. Automated Washers tend to render higher quality instrument care and longer useable instrument life.
Tabletop Sterilizer and When to sterilize or disinfect eye and dental surgical instruments: According to the CDC Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, eye dental instruments are classified into three categories depending on the risk of transmitting infection. The classifications of critical, semi-critical and non-critical are based on the following criteria:
Countertop Tabletop Sterilizer and Critical surgical instruments are those used to penetrate soft tissue or bone and should be sterilized after each use. Sterilization is achieved by steam under pressure (autoclaving), dry heat, or heat/chemical vapor. Critical instruments include forceps, scalpels, bone chisels, scalers, and burs.
Tabletop Sterilizer Surgical Instrument Sterilizer and Semi-critical surgical instruments are those that do not penetrate soft tissues or bone but contact oral tissues, such as mirrors and amalgam condensers. These devices should also be sterilized after each use. In some cases, however, sterilization is not feasible and, therefore, high-level disinfection is appropriate. A high-level disinfectant is registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a "sterilant/disinfectant" and must be labeled as such. Tabletop Sterilizer Surgical Instrument Sterilizer and non-critical surgical instruments are those that come into contact only with intact skin such as external components of X-ray heads. Such devices have a relatively low risk of transmitting infection and, therefore, may be reprocessed between patients by intermediate-level or low-level disinfection. An intermediate-level disinfectant is EPA-registered as a hospital disinfectant and will be labeled for tuberculocidal activity e.g., phenolics, iodophors, and chlorine-containing compounds. A low-level disinfectant is EPA-registered as a hospital disinfectant but is not labeled for tuberculocidal activity e.g., quaternary ammonium compounds. All critical and semi-critical dental eye instruments that are heat-stable should be sterilized after each use by steam under pressure autoclaving, dry heat, or chemical vapor. Countertop Tabletop Sterilizer Surgical Instrument Sterilizer and Packaging prior to using Statim: Packaging rinsed and dried instruments before sterilization protects them from contamination after they are removed from the sterilizer and during transport chair side or to storage. Sterilization is recommended for all high-speed dental & eye hand pieces, low-speed hand piece components used intra-orally, and reusable prophylaxis angles. It is important to follow the manufacturers’ instructions for cleaning, lubrication, and sterilization procedures to ensure the effectiveness of the sterilization process and the longevity of these instruments. High-speed and low-speed hand pieces produced today are heat-tolerant, and many older heat-sensitive models can be retrofitted with heat-stable components.
Proper functioning of sterilization cycles should be verified by periodic use of spore tests called biologic indicators. Biologic indicators consist of highly resistant bacterial spores of Bacillus stearothermophilus used to monitor steam and unsaturated chemical vapor sterilizers or Bacillus subtilis used for monitoring the dry heat sterilizer. Chemical indicators in the form of tape, strips, tabs and special markings on packaging material indicate exposure to heat. Heat-sensitive chemical indicators that change color after exposure to heat do not guarantee sterilization, but may be used on the outside of each pack to identify those that have been processed through the heating cycle, or in the center of either a load of unwrapped instruments or in each multiple instrument pack.
Countertop Tabletop Sterilizer and Liquid chemical germicides and neutral pH cleaners: In all eye surgery and dental surgery and other health-care settings, indications for the use of liquid chemical germicides to sterilize instruments i.e., cold sterilization are limited. For heat-sensitive instruments, this procedure may require up to 10 hours of exposure to a liquid chemical agent registered with the EPA as a sterilant/disinfectant. Instruments sterilized in this manner should be rinsed very carefully with sterile water to thoroughly remove the toxic agents, dried, and placed in a sterile container if not used immediately. Care must be taken when using liquid chemical germicides due to their carcinogenic nature are their capacity to damage lung and nasal tissues. Neutral pH cleaning concentrates are safe to use and will effectively remove contaminated debris. Neutral pH cleaning concentrates will render instruments that are clean, safe to handle, and will effectively provide the prerequisite for sterilization.

The BRAVO 17 Tabletop Sterilizers, BRAVO 21 Tabletop Sterilizers, and the ever popular SciCan STATIM 5000 Tabletop Sterilizer with the 11 sterilizing minute cycle of the for unwrapped instruments. The SciCan BRAVO Tabletop Sterilizer with Flash Sterilizer Cycle drying system provides a perfectly dry load every time. In addition, Bravo’s large capacity allows the office to quickly process three wrapped full-size cassettes or up to fifteen pouches. Unlike many other simple Tabletop Sterilizer chamber autoclaves, the Bravo Tabletop Sterilizer uses only fresh distilled water for every cycle. The BRAVO Tabletop Sterilizer has been designed to pull clean distilled water from a container as far as six feet away and then push the used water directly to the drain, freeing up valuable time for your staff. The BRAVO Tabletop Sterilizer comes in three models to suit the most far ranging requirements. The SciCan BRAVO Tabletop Sterilizer features a Flash Sterilizer Cycle.
