STERILISATION

The product is not supplied as sterilised.

Therefore, prior to insertion, the implant and the components of the kit must be sterilised using a steam-based sterilisation unit which has been duly validated.

General instructions for sterilisation placed under vacuum (high vacuum) previously.

*The implants, instruments and surgical tray must not be removed from the autoclave until the ‘drying cycle’ has finished.
