NEVER IN DOUBT Barcode-scanning technology allows busy SPD leaders to locate instrumentation during the various stages of the sterilization process.   |   Northwell Health
Top sterile processing departments (SPDs) might not have the ability to dematerialize bioburden with a sci-fi-like laser beam, but the technologies and solutions available to today’s reprocessing techs are becoming smarter, faster and more advanced with each passing day. The impact of these innovations cannot be understated. Cutting-edge technology in SPDs directly impacts the working quality of surgical instrumentation and the life span of the instruments themselves. It also provides desperately needed efficiency for high-volume facilities in the fast-paced world of outpatient surgery.
