FAQ

How long does Self-Test Mode take?

It takes about 10 minutes.

What is the role of Self-Test Mode?

Self Test Mode should be processed once a day before processing the first cycle to check the status of RENO-Series Sterilizers. Make sure to remove the sterilant cassette without loading items when starting the Self-Test Mode.

Do RENO-Series Sterilizers need aeration time like EtO sterilizers?

No. RENO-Series Sterilizers do not need any aeration process because of the sterilizing agent, hydrogen peroxide. It decomposes completely into H2O and O2 by corona plasma. Due to this point, RENO-Series Sterilizers can increase turnover about 15 times more than EtO Gas Sterilizers that take over 10 hours to sterlize. This is one of the key features of RENO-Series Plasma Sterilizers.

How do I choose the cycle?

The two sterilization cycles are designed to provide maximum flexibility for instrument processing. The vast majority of medical instruments (90%-95%) may be processed in Eco cycle. The advanced cycle is available for more challenging instruments such as single-channel flexible endoscopes. When more than one type of medical instrument is being processed, the cycle selection should be based on the device that is most difficult to sterilize.
Non lumen cycle may be used with RENO-S130 and RENO-S130D. Medical instrument that require only surface sterilization can be processed through the Non-lumen cycle.

Medical devices that require only surface sterilization can be processed in the Non-lumen Cycle:
Medical devices with the following materials and dimensions can be processed in the Eco Cycle:

Single-channel stainless steel lumens with:
- An inside diameter of 1 mm or larger and a length of 500 mm or shorter
Single-channel flexible endoscopes with polyethylene and Teflon lumens with:
- An inside diameter of 1 mm or larger and a length of 1,500 mm or shorter

Medical devices, including most flexible endoscopes, with the following materials and dimensions can be processed in the RENO-Series Plasma Sterilizer Advanced Cycle:
Single-channel stainless steel lumens with:
- An inside diameter of 1 mm or larger and a length of 1,000 mm or shorter
Single-channel flexible endoscopes with polyethylene and Teflon lumens with:
- An inside diameter of 1 mm or larger and a length of 12,000 mm or shorter

What is the temperature for sterilization by RENO-Series Plasma Sterilizer?

Temperature inside the chamber during the sterilization process is about 55 ℃.

How long are the cycle times?

Each time is different for each sterilizer as shown below. .
RENO-S20 : Eco Cycle 21min. / Advanced Cycle 38min.
RENO-S30 : Eco Cycle 27min. / Advanced Cycle 45min.
RENO-D50 : 45min.
RENO-S130 : Non-lumen Cycle 28min. / Eco Cycle 45min. / Advanced Cycle 62min.
RENO-S130D : Non-lumen Cycle 28min. / Eco Cycle 45min. / Advanced Cycle 62min.

What is the advantage of RENO-Series Low temperature Plasma Sterilizer?

RENO-Series Low Temperature Plasma Sterilizers have more capacity and provide an easy-to-use interface. (Refer to the Homepage, Product  Features)
Narrower internal diameter and longer hollow devices can be processed in RENO-Series plasma sterilizers.
The standard sterilization time is from 21 min. to 45 min. for most instruments such as Single-Channel Polyethylene & Teflon flexible (internal diameter ≥ 1Ø and length ≤ 12,000mm) or rigid tubes and endoscopes made of stainless steel (internal diameter ≥ 1Ø and length ≤ 1,000mm).

Helix PCD test proves that RENO-Series plasma sterilizers can be definitely set apart from other plasma sterilizers because of their powerful penetration into * single-through lumen  (2Ø × 1,500mm).
Helix PCD chamber containing a class 1 chemical strip is connected to a hose of Teflon (2Ø × 1,500mm).
In RENO-Series plasma sterilizers, the efficacy of sterilization results ensures excellent performance as air tightness between the lumen chamber and the hose is effectively removed.

* Single-through lumen: lumen with one-end closed

What is Plasma?

It is called “The fourth state of matter” along with different kinds of substances, solids, liquids and gases. Plasma status is the aggregate of particles composed of negative ions, positive ions, and free electron etc.
