…the Miele system thoroughly cleans and disinfects our surgery tools. It saves time…

For Dr. Jim Pertsch, a skilled surgeon with his own surgery center in San Mateo, CA, the decision was simple. “I was familiar with Miele equipment and fascinated with the quality, so when I heard Miele offered a solution for cleaning surgical instruments, I was interested,” says Dr. Pertsch. “I’m always looking for ways to help the staff, and the Miele system thoroughly cleans and disinfects our surgery tools. It saves time and I don’t worry as much about the staff coming in contact with blood and fluids,” he added.

Dr. Pertsch is referring to the G 7899, an automated washer-disinfector system that is part of a new package of products for cleaning and disinfecting of surgical instruments by Miele Professional. Included in the package are an under counter washer-disinfector, a set of baskets and trays for surgical instruments, cleaning agent for bioburden removal, and a cleaning verification test.

In addition to cleaning of general surgical instruments, the Miele washer-disinfector can be configured for the particular cleaning requirements of the various arthroscopes, endoscopes, cannulas, and other narrow lumen instruments used in minimally invasive procedures.

The heart of the package is the Miele G 7899 Washer-Disinfector System, a compact appliance tested in accordance with ISO 15883 guidelines. Though blood should not be allowed to dry on surgical instruments, the Miele system is proven to clean and disinfect blood and protein dried on instruments for up to 6 hours. Five operating programs are provided, including a program with an intermediate-level thermal disinfection step that is especially helpful for busy surgery center workflows. The G 7899 model is rated to perform reliably for 15,000 hours, equating to up to 15 years of continuous service. Installation, performance testing and a comprehensive two-year warranty are included.

Baskets and injectors designed for the G 7899 direct the high volume water flow with low spray pressures for safe and thorough cleaning of delicate instruments. Mucapur® EnzymePower, a multi-enzymatic and pH neutral cleaning agent, assists in breaking down and removing blood, tissue, protein soils and stubborn biofilms. Verification of thorough bioburden removal can be verified in minutes using the Miele ProCare Protein Check, a chemical solution applied directly to surgical instruments after cleaning.

The Miele Professional Ambulatory Service Center package provides an exceptional solution for assisting practices conform to healthcare facility standards, such as AAMI ST79.
