Dental washer disinfector validation (or washer disinfector tests) is the process of demonstrating and confirming that the device is capable of consistently and effectively cleaning and disinfecting dental instruments to a high standard. This process involves conducting a series of tests and checks to ensure that the washer disinfector is functioning properly and meeting the relevant standards and guidelines for instrument reprocessing.
Validation typically includes:
· Measuring the process temperature during the cleaning and disinfection cycles.
· Conducting checks and tests to confirm that the disinfectant used is effective against specific microorganisms.
· Checking the functionality of the control systems and safety features of the device.
· Documenting the results of the validation tests as per HTM 01-05.
The purpose of validation is to ensure that the dental washer disinfector is safe and effective for use, and to prevent the transmission of infection from contaminated instruments to patients. Validation should be conducted annually, and the full report and calibration certificate should be kept on file for future reference.
