In order to guarantee a sterile logistics flow between the Central Sterilisation Department, Storage and the OR, Belintra presents its Sterisystem concept to guarantee patient safety throughout the logistics process.
Before they reach the OR, packed instrument sets are subject to multiple manual operations, which increase the risk of damage or perforations. With the Sterisystem concept, Belintra is offering logistics solutions that will prevent that from happening.
The logistics flow starts with the Sterisystem Dry-BaseTM instrument baskets, available in a standard version or fitted with a High Frequency Steri-ID tag. As soon as they have been packed, the instrument baskets are placed on an anti-slip silicone mat in a Sterisystem Perfo-SafeTM stainless steel wire basket or on a stainless steel wire shelf. From that moment on, the packed instruments will no longer come into direct contact with hands or shelves.
The Sterisystem Perfo-Safe wire baskets or wire shelves are the modular elements used throughout the rest of the process. They are compatible with standard top or floor loaders for autoclaves. For floor loaders and washing tunnels Belintra has developed a specific Stericart. Belintra also offers a wide range of open and closed transport carts for internal or external transport between departments to maintain a closed sterile chain.
For storage Belintra developed the unique UFlex storage shelving system. This flexible and modular storage solution can be used to complete the sterile circle, but can equally be used for other storage purposes. All Belintra transport and storage solutions are equipped with silent polyamide runners for optimum noise reduction.
