Our customers work hard to remain compliant and follow hospital
protocols, procedures and processes. However, we observed many
manual workarounds and knew we
needed to provide a solution that
automates the workflow and ensures systems talked to each other.
We leveraged these core customer insights to create the next-gener-ation, low-temperature sterilization
systems — the STERRAD 100NX
and STERRAD NX Systems with
ALLClear Technology — which help
minimize human error and reduce
workflow interruptions by automatically identifying and fixing issues
that can cause cycle cancellations.
These easy-to-use systems also
offer compliance and quality control
features and enable easy staff training and operation.
What are some of the unique features of the STERRAD Systems

Efficiency — when supporting
potentially life-saving surgeries — is
critical, and we developed the new
STERRAD Systems with ALLClear
Technology to help CSSDs deliver
instruments to operating rooms as
quickly and as consistently as possible so that doctors and patients
have the devices they need, when
they need them.
We know that cycle cancellations interrupt workflows and cause
delays. The systems help maximize
efficiency by minimizing workflow
interruptions and offering integrated
quality control features.

Our ALLClear Technology, which
is more intelligent than technologies available with other systems,
automatically monitors conditions,
providing pre-sterilization cycle
load conditioning, load checks, and
system checks to reduce operator
error while improving productivity.
This process occurs prior to the
sterilization cycle and can automatically identify and fix some of the
most frequent issues that can cause
We designed the STERRAD Systems with ALLClear Technology as
