The Circle for Life

Getinge is the expert in creating a seamless workflow of instrument reprocessing. We can help you develop a streamlined and cost-effective process, from the moment the instruments have been used, to the moment when they are safe and ready to be used again. When you need to deliver the safest surgery for your patients, we are with your every step of the way.

Post operation and
pre-cleaning

Unclean items from the OR, wards, outpatient and other departments arrive at the reception area. After visual inspection, items can be put straight on racks and loaded into the washer-disinfectors. Instruments can also be manually cleaned by soaking, spray-gun rinsing and/or ultrasonic cleaning, before being loaded into the washer-disinfector. 

Cleaning and disinfection
to inspection and packing

The clean and disinfected goods enter the area for sorting, inspection and packing. They can be unloaded manually or by an automated system. Once sorted, inspected and packaged, the goods are ready for sterile processing.

Sterile instruments
- ready to be used again

Once sterile, the goods can either be stored in a dedicated storage area, where they are kept until they are needed again, or transported directly to the next surgery waiting for them to arrive in time.

Consumables
- for accurate and consistent results

Every day you reprocess a variety of instruments at different times, temperatures and conditions. You need reassurance that your sterile goods have been thoroughly cleaned and sterilized in accordance with your local standards and hospital requirements.

Getinge products conform to relevant standards, ensuring consistent and accurate quality of your results.
