Instrument Sterilisation Basket Accessories
Silicone Instrument Mats/ Pin Mats
Our range also includes silicone instrument mats, or pin mats, available for use with different sized baskets and trays to securely hold instruments in place limiting damaged during reprocessing. The added benefit with the Liberty Instrument Mats is they can be cut to suit the instrument sterilisation basket size.
An absorbent linen towel should be used to line the bottom. A nonwoven disposable wrapper should not be used to line the tray due to its water-repellent characteristic, causing the moisture to collect at the tray bottom.
Instruments with ring handles should be placed on a “stringer” to maintain the instruments in an open (ratchets fully unlocked) manner and prevent scattering of the instruments in the tray. Instruments of like size, length, shape and function should be grouped together on the stringer as an aid to the CST in the first scrub role to quickly identify instruments during counts and when setting up for the surgical procedure.
