    Cleaning Instructions


    Immediately after surgery, rinse instrument under warm (not hot) running water. Rinse should remove all blood, bodily fluids and tissue.


    If not done immediately after rinsing, instrument should be submerged in a solution of water and neutral PH (7) detergent.

    Ultrasonic Cleaning

    • Instrument should be processed in a cleaner for the full recommended cycle time – usually 5 to 10 minutes.

    • Place instrument in the ultrasonic cleaner. Instrument has to be fully submerged.

    • Do not place dissimilar metals (stainless, copper, chrome plated, etc.) in the same cleaning cycle.

    • Change solution frequently – at least as often as manufacturer recommends.

    • Rinse instrument after ultrasonic cleaning with water to remove ultrasonic cleaning solution.

    After Cleaning

    If instrument is to be stored, let it air dry and store in a clean and dry environment.

    Automatic Washer Sterilizer

    Follow manufacturer's recommendations.

    Manual Cleaning

    Most instrument manufacturers recommend ultrasonic cleaning as the best and most effective way to clean surgical instruments. If ultrasonic cleaning is not available, observe the following steps:

    • Use stiff plastic cleaning brushes (nylon, etc.)

    • Do not use steel wool or wire brushes.

    • Use only neutral ph (7) detergents because if not rinsed off properly low ph detergents will cause breakdown of stainless protective surface and black staining.

    • High ph detergent will cause surface deposit of brown stain, which will also interfere with smooth operation of the instrument.

    • Make sure all instrument surfaces are visibly clean and free from stains and tissue.

    • After scrubbing, rinse instruments thoroughly under running water.
