In a dental clinic, patients come and go, while you use one tool after the other to keep their pearly whites clean. The most important step when you’re finished with a patient is to ensure that your tools are sterilized before they are used again. Although, this step can take time, and your patient waits for you to speed up the process in the waiting area. It’s time to find a product that will be fast, modern, and the answer to all of your sterilization concerns.
So, how do you choose the right product for your sterilization needs? When considering options, it’s important that your sterilization system is:
- Effective; and
SciCan’s STATIM is a reliable system that is compact enough to fit in patient treatment areas and is fast enough to provide sterilization treatment between patients. The STATIM 2000S and STATIM 5000S take 8.5 and 11.5 minutes, respectively, for a complete unwrapped sterilization cycle! This is an important feature, as you don’t have to worry about taking the extra time to sterilize your instruments before the next patient arrives.
The Benefits of STATIM
A common question you might ask when purchasing any product is: “Why is this better than what I have?” Another question might be something along the lines of: “How much time will this save?” In any work environment, time is a commodity. The more time you save, the more patients you can attend to, and the better you will feel about your day. Here are the benefits of using STATIM:
- Gentle on instruments (both solid and hollow);
- Sterilizes headpieces and instruments for immediate use in as little as 8 minutes;
- Uses only a small, specific amount of water for each cycle; and
- Allows for rapid heating and cooling with thin cassette walls.
After looking at the benefits, it’s easy to see why this product is both easy-to-use, reliable, and fast! You’ll be cycling through your tools in no time, keeping your patients happy and your tools sterile with no issues.
The Modern Solution
The STATIM autoclave also has a high-resolution, 65K colour touchscreen, which allows you to access the cycle history, sterilization records, and prints and validates information. You can also set up the STATIM to support verifiable processes that are PIN protected with user-defined IDs. This mean that staff members can authorize a cycle, creating a safe environment for patients and staff.
STATIM is used by doctors in over 90 countries around the world, relying on the world’s first compact sterilization unit to sterilize instruments between patients, both effectively and efficiently.
