Cleaning // in the medical technology sector
According to the German Medical Devices Act (Medizinproduktegesetz — MPG), active implantable medical devices, such as pacemakers, and non-active medical consumables are required to meet the highest standards of cleanliness – right through to sterility. The precision cleaning of surgical instruments, endoscopes, dental products and implants made of metal, ceramic or plastic therefore calls for particular care and extensive technical know-how.
MATTHES supplies both. We have extensive industry-specific experience extending beyond the conventional removal of film deposits and particulate matter. The cleaning requirements in medical technology are complex. The material components used, including shape memory polymers and metals as well as absorbable and biocompatible materials, often necessitate specific adjustments to the cleaning processes. You can rely on MATTHES to inspect the products after cleaning and to validate the results as a matter of course in all cleaning processes.
