  • Causa
    The manufacturer, intuitive surgical inc, has determined that the use of the getinge 88 turbo washer/disinfector in combination with getinge clean mis to reprocess instruments results in a higher chance of input disk breakage, rendering the instrument inoperable. the appendices in the reprocessing manuals incorrectly list the getinge 88 turbo washer/disinfector and the getinge clean mis combination for reprocessing instruments. the getinge combination of equipment and cleaning agents leaves a residual amount of detergent on the input disks resulting in disk breakage during sterilisation.
