The Scican Hydrim instrument washer and Scican Statclave sterilizer is tested for effectiveness on a daily basis. A dry block incubator is used daily to test for negative spore growth which ensures that the sterilizer is working properly. The instruments are placed in wrapped cassettes with sterilization integrity indicators and transported in a container to protect the sterility of the instruments until they are opened at the time your treatment begins. After use, the contaminated instruments are placed in a lock lid container with a biohazard label for transportation back for sterilization.
