Drying takes place by means of the connection of the MELAquick 12+ to the compressed air supply in the decontamination room. Using the MELAquick 12+ is the ideal alternative to sterilization of handpieces in a normal practice steam sterilizer, with its inevitably longer cycle times. The MELAquick 12+, being 20.5 x 45 cm (width x depth) in size, requires a clearly smaller positioning surface than all other steam sterilizers and permits the input of up to 12 handpieces. The speedy operating times facilitate continuous practice hygiene, without having to buy expensive, additional handpieces. Versatility in batch documentation, batch release and traceability, which is known from the MELAG device series of the Pro- and Premium-Classes and is generally recognised as trend setting, is also available with the MELAquick 12+. This includes MELAflash, MELAnet Box for network connection, approval and labelling of the instruments with MELAtrace.
