Medica: Miele confirms claim to innovation leadership

Particularly safe and cost-effective reprocessing / 50 years of trust in Miele medical technology / Successful launch of System4Med

(PresseBox) (Gütersloh/Düsseldorf, ) At Medica 2011, Miele Professional will once again reassert its claim to being innovation leader in the field of instrument reprocessing: For example with a new system to process the instruments used in robotic-assisted surgery as well as an innovative heat-recovery system for large-chamber decontamination units. 'Experience - Trust - Innovation' is the motto of Miele's booth which will also remind visitors to Hall 12, Stand E 17 that Miele is this year celebrating 50 years of medical technology.

Long before the fair opens its doors, customers from 25 countries have announced their attendance. These visitors will experience the complete product portfolio of Miele Professional covering planning, machinery and aftermarket services to modern central sterile supply departments, surgeries and outpatient clinics (System4Med).

This for instance includes the new RobotVario system, a proven, safe and cost-effective reprocessing method for the shafted instruments used in robotic-assisted surgery. Up to EUR 1200 energy and water savings a year are the benefits brought to clients by the smart PerfectEco system which can be retrofitted on Miele PG 8527 and PG 8528 large-chamber decontamination units. EuroSDS, a comprehensive software package from Miele's cooperation partner IBH Data Technology, ensures reliable process documentation and the management of sterile supplies. Further highlights on the stand covering 340 m² include a walk-through container and trolley washer.

And Miele's large steam sterilisers, the first of which have been commissioned over recent weeks are now up and running, represent the icing on the cake. "With our new large steam sterilisers and all the other products and services, we are now a highly competent full-range supplier to central sterile supply operations with respect to centralised instrument reprocessing to meet the discerning needs or our clients in hospitals and outpatient surgeries", says Andreas Barduna, head of Miele's Professional division.

This press folder contains more detailed information and first reports from users in the field on the new products and services which constitute System4Med.
