Advancements in surgical instrument design have dramatically improved patient outcomes. Intricately-designed surgical instruments and devices have made manual cleaning more labor intensive and challenging for decontamination department staff. STERIS Ultrasonic Cleaners help increase efficiency in the Sterile Processing Department (SPD) or Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) through powerful cleaning capabilities, high capacity, and staff-focused designs. Reprocess a variety of surgical instruments, including laparoscopic, opthalmic, and orthopedic sets in STERIS's ultrasonic cleaners.
Freestanding ultrasonic cleaners help to process complex surgical instruments, and maintain compliance with device instructions for use. Using a high capacity ultrasonic cleaner aids in your departments overall throughput, to support the busiest operating rooms. Using a combination of powerful cavitation and controlled irrigation, our larger ultrasonic washers effectively dislodge and flush debris from serrations, small crevices, and lumens.
The VERIFY Ultrasonic Indicator provides an independent objective test to evaluate the ultrasonic cycle. Ultrasonic cleaning uses cavitation, chemistry, time, and temperature to effectively remove soils after manual cleaning. Problems such as insufficient sonic energy, water level, improper temperature and degassing may have an impact on cycle outcomes.
