For economic reasons, Komet Medical/Gebr. Brasseler’s basic philosophy is to provide hospitals with instruments that can be reprocessed.
Therefore, the manufacturer is required to design instruments that are able to withstand stresses and strains as well as repeated reprocessing cycles. This means for example that they must be stable and should not have hard-to-clean areas. A validated method for reprocessing can be viewed under the menu bar, clicking on Product Information and Instrument reprocessing.
On the other hand, the user or reprocessing division is required to treat multi-use instruments with the reasonable care. This means that they must not be thrown or used as a lever and they have to be reprocessed immediately after the operation. They must be submitted to a detailed control to eliminate instruments that are no longer serviceable. Provided that all requirements are met, you can use the full potential of a multi-use instrument!
