Frequently Asked Questions

How often should my steriliser be serviced?
Your steriliser should be serviced in accordance with the manufacturers guidelines and the Australian Standards. We recommend servicing every 6 months for dental and every 12 months for general medical.
How often should my steriliser be validated?
Sterilisers should be validated once a year. They should also be validated after they have been moved from one location to another. If you are renting a steriliser it should be validated upon arrival at your own cost.

Sterilisers should be positioned on a secure stable bench top with at least 20cm on all sides of the steriliser including the top and the rear of the unit.

Most sterilisers require the standard 10 amp power point however some do require 15amp power points. Please call us to confirm.
