The sterilization center may be the heart of the practice, but people are the heart of the dental industry.
Nothing is more important than protecting you, your staff and your patients. As you prepare to reopen your practice, we'll be here as always, supporting you with tips for revisiting practice efficiency and sterilization methods, or just planning ahead for when you return to patients full time. Meanwhile, let us be a resource for you and your team as we all prepare for the new normal.
Your patients will now be more concerned than ever about infection control. No longer something to hide away in the backroom, the sterilization center can serve as a good tool to reassure patients about your strict adherence to sterilization protocol.
Intuitively and safely guide your dental team through the sterilization process to ensure compliance and keep materials moving efficiently.
Combine loads, customize cycles and achieve sterilization best practices with an intuitive, easy-to-use system: the Lexa Sterilizer from W&H. Patented technology delivers bone-dry loads—helping protect your patients and mitigate risk.
We are offering free online CE courses with a range of topics including dental office design, ergonomics, and optimal operatory lighting.
A-dec's sterilization experts are available to guide your team through the phases of the process, following recommended CDC protocol. Contact us if we can help.
A-dec sterilization centers are organized into functional workspaces, with specified areas for receiving, cleaning, preparation, packaging, sterilization and storage. You can easily group together related steps and simplify the entire sterilization process.
Red infill indicates contaminated. Blue indicates clean. With visual cues and separate storage spaces, dental workers decrease the chance of cross contamination or accidental exposure to microorganisms and contaminants.
Load materials and instruments directly from the sterilization center or sterilized storage, deliver them to the treatment room, and return used materials for processing.
Drawer inserts come in many configurations so you can customize sterilized materials setup to create the most productive flow for your practice.
Integrated, slide-out waterproof shelf is engineered to accommodate cassette-style autoclaves and protect the cabinet and floor from potential liquid spills.
Connect the Lexa Sterilizer’s optional label printer and automatically print and attach bar code labels to every load, in compliance with CDC package labeling requirements.
Feel Confident. Closed-door vacuum drying keeps the door locked for the entire cycle, while patented steam-condensing vacuum technology produces bone-dry loads.
Relieve Bottlenecks. Lexa's 11” chamber holds four large trays and up to four levels of cassettes, so you can sterilize and dry 18 lbs. of dental instruments in as little as 30 minutes.
Gain Capacity. Lexa's universal 3-in-1 rack offers flexibility. Place pouches on four large trays and up to four levels of cassettes (including surgical and double-decker), vertically and horizontally.
