360° Instrument Processing

A holistic approach to infection prevention

One of the oldest and most widely used design elements in culture, science, art, and architecture is the circle. The circle is a universal symbol that often communicates positive associations including wholeness, perfection, and eternity. For all these reasons, the circle is also an appropriate symbol for SPD departments.

Instrument Reprocessing CycleInstrument processing is not a linear process. It is a circle that starts and ends with safe-to-use, complete, well organized instrument sets for patient care procedures.

In recognition of this fact, Case Medical long ago committed itself to a 360° instrument processing approach. In practical terms that means that Case Medical not only provides SPD departments with products for every phase of the process, it also means the products were designed as a system that makes it easier to sustain quality and continuity throughout the cycle.

Critical steps in the 360° instrument processing approach, and some of the Case Medical products that support them, include:

Pre-Clean – PentaPrep® and Penta Wipes Multi-Enzymatic products

Clean, Rinse, and Dry – SuperNova® Multi-Enzymatic Cleaner, SuperNova® pH Neutral Detergent, Instrument Brushes

Package, Inspect, and Organize – MediTray® Modular System of Inserts and Case Trays

Sterilize – SteriTite® Universal Sealed Container System

Transport and Store – SteriTite® Case Carts and Shelving

Communicate and Track – CaseTrak360® and Loaner Locate® Software

Case Medical’s 360° instrument processing approach delivers benefits in multiple ways.
