Autoclaves and instrument sterilisation are key elements in maintaining safety and hygiene in different types of medical and beauty practices.

1 Hospitals and Medical Clinics:

In a hospital environment, where contact with various pathogens is inevitable, autoclaves are an absolute necessity. From surgical instruments to transplant kits, all items must be thoroughly sterilised to prevent the spread of infection. Procedures such as surgery, invasive procedures or endoscopic examinations require complete sterility.

2 Dental surgeries:

Dental visits can involve minor trauma to the gums, through which bacteria and viruses can easily enter the bloodstream. Therefore, autoclaves are essential for the sterilisation of dental instruments, including drills etc. Patient safety is the priority here.

3 Cosmetic surgeries:

In the beauty industry, especially for procedures such as permanent make-up, manicure, pedicure or depilation, it is essential to ensure the sterility of tools and surfaces. Autoclaves are key here to avoid the risk of bacterial or viral infections.

4 Tattoo parlours:

Tattooing is a process that requires piercing the skin, which poses the risk of transmitting various pathogens, including HIV or hepatitis B and C virus. The use of autoclaves to sterilise instruments such as needles and handles is absolutely essential to ensure client safety.

5 Small Surgical Practices:

In smaller surgical practices, such as those run by single doctors or smaller clinics, autoclaves are equally essential. Outpatient procedures, small surgical procedures or biopsy examinations require just as meticulous sterilisation as those carried out in larger medical facilities.
