Validating cleaning procedures protein

The Reuse Validation Process The ultimate goal of device reprocessing is to render a medical device safe for further human use.

Given the high possibility of infection if any microorganisms are introduced into these areas, critical devices must be cleaned and then sterilized to an SAL of 10-6.Devices that are designed with the eventual reuse parameters in mind generally have a quicker and easier path through the validation process.Conversely, devices that prove very difficult to clean or disinfect often must be redesigned, resulting in delays and/or cost overruns.Noncritical devices, which only make contact with intact skin, require cleaning and low or intermediate-level disinfection.Semicritical devices contact mucous membranes but not the bloodstream, and require cleaning and high-level disinfection.
