Midmark introduces M3 Ultrafast automatic sterilizer

Dec. 8, 2009
M3 sterilizes unwrapped instruments in six minutes and pouched instruments in just more than 10 minutes.

VERSAILLES, Ohio--Midmark has announced availability of the Midmark M3 UltraFast Automatic Sterilizer for the dental office.

The M3 sterilizes unwrapped instruments in six minutes and pouched instruments in just more than 10 minutes. There is also a low-temperature cycle to accommodate rubber or plastic items. The M3 was designed for use as a stand-alone sterilizer or as a complementary sterilizer to the Midmark M9 and M11.

All three are similar in use and function. The M9 and M11 provide sterilizing capacity while the M3 provides speed when instruments are needed quickly. The M3 is equipped with a fully automatic door that closes at the start of each cycle and opens at the end of each cycle to dry an instrument load in as little as 25 minutes. This feature increases efficiency and eliminates the need to monitor the sterilization cycle, freeing the clinician to perform other tasks.

The Midmark M3 provides other features, such as three pre-programmed cycles, on-board user guide and built-in intelligence to sense low-water reservoir and full condensate tank water levels. The water level sensors eliminate spillage from the condensate tank, helping to avoid any unnecessary mess or degradation of cabinet and floor surfaces.

In addition, the ergonomically developed, removable M3 door tray is easy to use and maneuver. The door tray slides into the sterilization chamber for easy loading while its convenient open-top design helps assure simple, fast, and consistent instrument processing. This saves time for the clinician.

The M3 fits on a counter or in a steri-center. Several handpieces and instruments can be accommodated in one load, and the tray is large enough to hold a standard Hu-Friedy Signa-Stat cassette.
