The FDA recently cleared the Sterrad 100NX system to help with efficiency in Central Sterile Services Departments (CSSDs) and to comply with government and facility requirements.
CSSDs have to clean, sterilize and make sure thousands of instruments are properly functioning in a day. If anything fails during the sterilization process, patients could be at risk of healthcare-associated infections and it could delay operating room schedules as well.
The Sterrad 100NX system uses proprietary algorithms to minimize workflow interruptions and cycle cancellations with a low-temperature sterilization system. It has load conditioning, load checks and system checks that help reduce operator error and improve productivity.
It can also be used with the ASP Access to automate data sharing with connected ASP systems and hospital networks.
“We developed the new Sterrad 100NX system with ALLClear technology to help CSSDs deliver instruments to operating rooms faster and more consistently, providing doctors and patients with the devices they need, when they need them,” said Suneel Shorey, VP of ASP Global Marketing. “This new system is the first in a series of innovations we plan to introduce globally in 2017 to help elevate the standard of care in sterilization and build on our heritage as a leader in infection prevention.”
Sterrad 100NX systems with ALLClear technology are currently being used in a number of hospitals in the U.S. and Europe and will be available for use in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Latin America and Japan throughout 2017.
