Clean, Clean, Clean

Our instruments are sterilised in a surgical-grade autoclave.

  1. We scrub our instruments in a medical and dental instrument-grade detergent.
  2. We seal the instruments in autoclave bags.
  3. We place the bags in our autoclave, which uses high pressure and heat to sterilise the equipment. Typically, the autoclave runs twice a day.
  4. We follow our two-step process to make sure the autoclave has worked properly. Firstly, each bag features a biological indicator strip to prove that the autoclave has worked properly. We check each bag when we unload the autoclave. Secondly, we include a biological indicator strip with each run, our second visual cue to ensure that the steriliser has run properly.
  5. The bags are packed away in a sealed container, ready for use.
