This CE webinar will review sterilization monitoring during instrument reprocessing. After briefly addressing key steps in instrument reprocessing, we will address mechanical and chemical indicators and their roles. The CE webinar will then focus on sterility assurance. Recommendations and best practices in spore testing (biological indicators) in the dental setting, risk reduction and potential sources of errors will be discussed.
After viewing this CE webinar, participants should be able to: • Discuss the roles of mechanical and chemical indicators • Describe the use of spore testing and best practices for sterility assurance • Review potential causes of errors in spore testing and their avoidance.
