Statim 5000 G4 Continues to Impress

For those of you who are regular readers of the blog, you know that we've been testing the new Statim G4 series autoclave in the office.
 
The new Statim G4 comes in 2 sizes the 2000, which is the "traditional" size that most people think of when thinking of a Statim while the other size is the 5000 and is designed for offices that have a higher volume or larger volume of instruments or larger instruments that will not fit the 2000 cassette sizes.
 
However, the heart of the G4 series is that the devices are Internet connected.  That means the device is in contact with both Scican (makers of the Statim) as well as the service department of  my favorite supplier, Goetze Dental.  Our Statim G4 checks in with those folks whenever it senses a problem or even if it senses that is a problem on the horizon.
 
We've been cranking multiple loads a day through our G4 5000 and have not had a single hiccup.  Add to that the piece of mind that comes with knowing any problem is immediately identified by the device and notification is sent to both the manufacturer and my preferred service department and this machine is a total winner for the office.  At this point I can say the Statim 5000 G4 is highly recommended!

Here is some other info of interest from the Scican website:
 

TOUCH. CONNECT. PROTECT. COLLECT.

TOUCH. A large 3.5” high-resolution touchscreen offers a vivid display of messages, current cycle information and customizable colours all with extraordinary clarity. Fully adjustable contrast levels let you optimize the screen to the lighting in your steri-centre.

CONNECT. Through your networked portal, you can view not only your STATIM’s current operations in real time, you can also access cycle history, printing and validation information, and also sterilization records. Capable of sending emails with cycle information errors directly to your dealer, your STATIM G4 will let qualified technicians know when service is imminent.

PROTECT. Patient safety relies on attention to detail. The STATIM G4 supports verifiable processes that are PIN protected with user-defined IDs so that staff members can be required to authorize a cycle. This encourages extra attention to process and creates a safer environment for both staff and patients.

COLLECT. An undocumented sterilization cycle might as well not have been performed. With each cycle, information must be stored to protect your office and your patient. The integrated DataLogger stores all cycle information for the lifetime of the unit, which is accesible through multiple channels such as: a USB port for manual retrieval; an Ethernet connection for web based archiving or desktop printing; or a RS232 port for an external printer option.
