The new format of the Interlock silicone mat now offers the proven protection also for the storage of instruments in small-set containers, dental cassettes or tray baskets having the format 120 mm × 250 mm. When placed in the container, the Interlock silicone mat prevents both impact damage and scratching of instruments and container coating. Upon use of containers in combination with soft packaging, on the other hand, the Interlock silicone mat protects the inner packaging, thus supporting safe and secure storage of sensitive instruments during transport. When the Interlock silicone mat is inserted directly into the tray basket, the unique honeycomb structure minimises the areas not cleansed due to surface coverage during the treatment process, ensuring excellent cleaning results.
The Clinipak silicone fixtures can be put to universal use and are ideal for fixing into sieve trays with a mesh size of 4 to 5 mm.
Unlike conventional holders, which have to be screwed down with an additional accessory, the Clinipak silicone fixtures’ holders can be easily inserted into the sieve trays’ base mesh and require no maintenance whatsoever. The small contact surface between the instrument and the silicone fixture compared with a flat bearing in the sieve tray also enables a better cleaning result. At the same time, the fixtures’ round shape prevents the instruments from sliding out of the fixing as a result of the high rinsing pressure. Mutual instrument damage is also prevented, which has a positive impact on the service life.
Additionally, clear instrument organisation thanks to the Clinipak silicone fixtures offers significant advantages for the user. While the fixtures reduce the risk of the user injuring themselves on the instruments, the instruments can also be returned to the holder straight after surgery and pass through the complete reprocessing cycle in one tray. This can optimise the time and effort spent on reorganisation and the arrangement of the instruments in the sieve tray.

Nowadays, high efficiency and process speeds are indispensable when processing medical devices. Therefore, auxiliary agents, such as Interlock instrument stringers, are ideal supplements for daily work in the central sterile services department (CSSD).
For example, joint instruments in an open state can be threaded to the instrument stringer after being used in surgery. Once the stringer has been closed, it can be placed in a sieve tray together with the instruments. In so doing, and whilst they are being cleaned in the WD, the joints of the contaminated instruments always remain open, which provides a more effective cleaning result.
The instrument stringers can also be a great help when packing surgery sets. In the CSSD, for instance, ring handle instruments can be placed in the order of the packing list along with the instrument stringers in a sieve tray. They will arrive pre-sorted in the surgery, where they will be used. This not only saves time, but also facilitates the counting of the instruments after they have been used in surgery.
The Interlock instrument stringers are manufactured from corrosion-resistant stainless steel and are durable. They are available with two key mechanisms (ball or hook closure), as well as in two different widths and four lengths. The Interlock instrument stringers can be used for a large number of conventional instrument groups.

Due to an ever-increasing number of operations, cleaning and disinfecting kidney dishes in a space-saving yet eff ective way constitutes an enormous challenge for CSSDs. Given that the space on the loading trolleys for washer-disinfectors must always be optimally utilised, storage aids for various products are welcome resources. In this way, waiting times can be reduced and unnecessary replenishment stores saved.
The Interlock kidney dish holder made of stainless steel off ers enough space for 8 kidney dishes, which you can store within the space of just one DIN system basket thanks to its unique design. Further advantages of the upright positioning of the kidney dishes include minimised areas that are left unwashed and dry removal of the products following cleaning. Cleaning solution residues are not able to gather on or in the inverted product, which also has a positive impact on the drying result of the entire load.
The Interlock kidney dish holder not only saves space on the washer-disinfector loading trolley, but also prevents any

|The latex-free Interlock pipe cleaners were especially developed for improved cleaning of narrow lumen and channels of medical devices such as aspirators, sleeves or trocars. Depending on the desired hardness grade, customers can choose from a multitude of available diameters and materials. On the one hand, there are the soft versions made of cotton or fleece (polyester) for gentle cleaning of sensitive surfaces. On the other hand, Interlock also offers the nylon blend variants, where individual nylon bristles have been incorporated between the cotton or polyester fibres. As is the case with normal round brushes, the strength is thereby increased and the cleaning effect improved.
For a basic set of different pipe cleaners, it is advisable to use the practical dispenser system, which has holding fixtures both for the loose pipe cleaners and for the pipe cleaner reels. Thanks to their acrylic glass design, the dispensers are also easy to clean and their contents can be identified immediately. Suitable refill packs are naturally available for the dispensers. The dispenser systems can be wall-mounted due to the holes on the rear.

The ClearVizor© protective face shield sets offer an all-round solution for the reliable protection of users’ faces and eyes.
The fundamental advantages of the ClearVizor© foils are:
During the reprocessing of medical devices CSSD staff are commonly faced with tough stains on medical devices such as surgical instruments. Those stains can be heavily resistant to removal by conventional detergents without seriously damaging the actual device.
Deposits of adhesives on surfaces of medical devices are a common example of such contamination. Vigorous brushing by itself is not sufficient and may harm the sensitive surfaces of those sensitive devices.
To solve this problem in the reprocessing, Interlock offers ‘Solvent Ultra’, a new generation cleaning product with a powerful cleaning formula. Solvent Ultra removes even ultra-resistant stains from surfaces of medical devices. Thanks to its natural and highly effective orange oil, Solvent Ultra removes adhesive plaster residues as well as iodine- and paste residues quickly and reliably. Simply by treating the affected surface with Solvent Ultra the problem is solved. Solvent Ultra is available in two sizes – 250 or 500 ml.

Individual labeling options are of great importance to the identification and tracking of sieve trays. However, not any label will meet the strict criteria required for labels used within the CSSD-department to ensure a smooth operation and high quality standard required within the daily processes. The ideal label will be designed in a way to allow CSSD-staff to attach it firmly to the tray while at the same time being able to exchange labels safely and quickly. In addition to that, the label has to be resistant to the typical mechanical stress which is common in any CSSD-environment.
Interlock hybrid sieve tray labels comply with all those criteria while being a perfect combination of stainless steel label holders and PTL insertion labels.
The labels come in a variety of colors and types. This is of great help especially with regard to recurring loaner sets. After returning the loaner sets, the inscribed labels can be stored until the next use while the label holder is available for further applications. The robust and high-quality stainless steel label holders can be attached to the sieve trays via the provided clip. The label holders have been designed to withstand thousands of sterilization cycles. PTL labels are compatible with laser-, P-Touch- or marker-labelling to allow a clear allocation to department or prioritization. This is further enhanced by the wide range of label-colors which Interlock has on offer. PTL sieve tray labels can be re-used and are heat-resistant up to 134°C.
For some variants different sized labels can be used with the same label holder. Due to the range of variations you will certainly find a suitable combination for your individual needs.
We are all aware of the importance of adequate cleaning and sterilization of instruments in order to prevent potential human infections in hospitals. Sometimes in this critical process one is heavily dependent on ‘little helpers’ which make the processing of instruments successful.
One of those ‘little helpers’ are the Interlock band clamps. Those band clamps keep the joints and jaws of, for example, rongeurs open and enable all critical areas to be effectively cleaned.
Other important ‘helpers’ are the Interlock spreaders: These allow instruments with ring handles, forceps with springs as well as clamps which cannot be disassembled to be cleaned much more efficiently in wash- disinfectors. Thereby the jaws remain open during the cleaning process to enable permanent rinsing.
All the underlying materials are of course heat-resistant (>134 °C).
K-wire containers made of titanium are characterized by low weight with high strength of the material. Due to the natural formation of a passivation layer, titanium is particularly suitable for products which require a high corrosion resistance.
The Interlock K-wire containers made of titanium are of a very high quality in terms of finish in order to provide the highest protection-standard for sensitive K-wires against mechanical damage, e.g. damage of the tips or bending the wires during cleaning- and disinfection process or sterilization, transport and storage.
The 4 chambers of the K-wire containers provide a reliable and organized storage-system for the K-wires. Due to the perforated plate structure the water can rinse around the wires during the cleaning and disinfection process. The dispenser system allows for simple removal of the k-wires, thus minimizing the risk of potential injury to the user.
For better identification and allocation, Interlock offers custom-made laser-marking of the four chambers to its clients.
