Instrument tracking is a basic procedure for the handling of sterilized materials.
Tracking guarantees the recording of the course of each instrument, from preparation to sterilization, until its use.
This is possible because of a cross checking data management system.
Tracking forms an integral part of the sterilisation cycle procedure and should be performed after the wrapping phase and before autoclave loading.
This procedure is indispensable to guarantee maximum legal protection to both operators and health director.
