|Sterrad Product Detail|
Simply the wisest choice in sterilization.
The Sterrad 100S System offers a rapid 55-minute cycle time to deliver increased instrument utilization and measurable cost efficiencies. Using ASP’s proven gas plasma technology, the STERRAD 100S System provides dry, low-temperature sterilization of both heat-stable and heat- and moisture-sensitive instruments in a single system—allowing you to have critical instruments available when you need them. The STERRAD 100S System not only increases productivity and capacity, but also eliminates the costs associated with resterilization, ventilation, and instrument repair, thereby turning speed into money.
Indications for Use
- Fast turnaround means increased instrument utilization.
- Rapid 55-minute cycle time facilitates processing of 14 loads of critical and noncritical medical devices in the time it takes to complete one cycle of EtO.
- Safety features protect both users and the environment.
- Process by-products are water and oxygen, eliminating the need for aeration or ventilation.
- Hydrogen peroxide residuals are nontoxic and noncarcinogenic.
- Multiple cost efficiencies enhance overall cost-effectiveness.
- Processed instruments can be inventoried or used immediately, enabling greater utilization of product inventory.
- Gentle system prolongs the useful life of instruments, minimizing damage and reducing costly instrument repair.
- Maximized instrument use reduces expensive inventories and eliminates the need for outsourcing.
- Quick installation reduces costs further still.
- System installation requires nothing more than a dedicated 3 phase 208V outlet.
- No costly plumbing, ventilation, or monitors are required.
- One-button operation increases user productivity.
- Simplified cycle start requires just one button.
- User-friendly display indicates cycle stage and elapsed time.
- Minimized training requirements enhance ease-of-use.
The following text briefly describes the materials and devices that can be sterilized by the Sterrad 100S Sterilizer. It also provides information on how to prepare items for sterilization. The Sterrad 100S Sterilizer can process many of the items you commonly sterilize as well as instruments that are sensitive to heat and moisture. However, there are a few important exceptions.
- The Sterrad 100S Sterilizer is designed for sterilization of both metal and nonmetal medical devices at low temperatures. Because the cycle operates within a dry environment and at low temperatures, it is especially suitable for instruments sensitive to heat and moisture.
- The Sterrad 100S Sterilizer can sterilize instruments which have diffusion-restricted spaces, such as the hinged portion of forceps and scissors.
- Metal and nonmetal lumened instruments with inside diameters of 6 mm (1/4 inch) or larger and lengths of 310 mm (12 inches) or shorter can be processed in the Sterrad 100S Sterilizer.
- Additionally, medical devices with only a single stainless steel lumen which has an inside diameter of 3 mm (1/8 inch) or larger and a length of 400 mm (15-3/4 inches) or shorter can be processed in the Sterrad 100S Sterilizer.
Many devices made of the following materials can be loaded into the Sterrad 100S Sterilizer:
Typical Items Sterilized
- Ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA)
- Polyethylene (high density and low density)
- Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA)
- Polyvinyl chloride (PVC)
- Stainless steel
