How to Decide What Type of Medical Dishwasher is Suitable for CSSD

Current washer-disinfectors have features that promote efficiency and safety by meeting national and international standards. These characteristics should include:

  • Intelligent, real-time feedback from an independent process monitor
  • Traceability and documentation
  • Drain-ability
  • Distribution of temperature and chemical
  • Filtration with High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA)
  • Efficiency in the use of water, chemicals, and energy
  • Cycle time is shorter.

A critical component in the manufacturing process is the effective cleaning of medical devices. Sterilization methods such as steam or low-temperature sterilization may not be effective if devices are not properly cleaned. Good thing our Deko 260 can provide the above characteristics

Labs, hospitals, mortuaries, prisons, and clinics can benefit from the Deko 260. Deko 260’s design allows it to be adapted to each unique user’s needs. It comes with a single door or a pass-through with four retractable sliding shelves. Despite its compact size, the Deko 260 has a significant capacity and can handle 16 DIN (240 x 255 x 50 mm) trays on each of the four levels, or up to 5 easily checked, revolving wash arms, as well as a variety of customized racks, to fit the full 485 trays.

ISO EN 15883 Parts 1 and 2 requirements are fully met by the Deko 260 washer-disinfector-dryer, designed and constructed to be fully compliant.

  • What is the role of CSSD in hospitals?

    The CSSD’s primary responsibility is to receive, clean, disinfect, package, and sterilize medical equipment for distribution. These devices are reprocessed in reprocessing equipment such as washer-disinfectors and sterilizers that are routinely maintained and validated to prevent cross-contamination and infection in patients. It is accomplished by CSSD employees who are well-educated and competent, working under the guidance of experienced and skilled managers who understand and apply risk management and quality assurance procedures.


  • What are the 4 areas of CSSD?

    CSSDs are typically divided into four major areas to accomplish the functions of decontamination, assembly and sterile processing, sterile storage, and distribution.

  • What are 3 types of sterilization?

    The three primary methods of medical sterilization occur from high temperature/pressure and chemical processes. These are Plasma Gas Sterilizers, Autoclaves, and Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide Sterilizers.
