Sterilization procedures are rigorously followed every day . We never want to risk cross-contamination!

  1. All instruments are high quality stainless steel, which is suitable to be high level disinfected and sterilized.
  2. After a sterile package is opened for use, the instruments are collected in a separate “dirty” bin for re-sterilization.
  3. Daily, all the used instruments are deposited and disinfected in the Miele Professional Washer-Disinfector G 7881. They are washed and thermally disinfected at 93°C/200°F. This high-level disinfection is very effective at inactivating any mycobacteria, fungi, fungal spores and viruses
  4. Disinfected tools are sealed into sterilization pouches for sterilization in the Miele Professional Steam-Sterilizer PS 1201B.
  5. Before the first load is sterilized in the Miele Professional Steam-Sterilizer PS 1201B, a ProCare ZS 150-1 Helix-Test indicator strip is processed to ensure there is sufficient steam saturation at 134°C for 5 minutes. This certifies the sterilizer is working at optimum levels.
  6. After it is ensured that the Helix Strip indicates the correct colour, the prepared instrument pouches are correctly loaded in the autoclave with an Attest 1292 Rapid Readout Biological Indicator.
  7. The 3M Attest 1292 Rapid Readout Biological Indicator monitors the sterilization process to ensure that no micro-organisms like Geobacillus stearothermophilus exist after the sterilization cycle.
  8. After the sterilization cycle is completed, the indicator is removed from the sterilizer. The indicator is placed in the 3M Attest Auto-reader 390 for an incubation cycle of three hours. During the Attest incubation cycle, the instruments are quarantined until the indicator is proven negative.
  9. Only at this time are the instruments released for use on clients.
  10. All test strips and indicators are correctly documented and kept for our records.
  11. All stages of sterilization are electronically recorded for documentation.
  12. If there is any interruption in any part of the process and the procedure stops, Miele Customer Service is contacted immediately. Within twenty-four hours, the issue is resolved by qualified Miele Technicians. We have enough sterile instruments to go three days without sterilizing if need be.
