The use of automated instrument washer-disinfectors is growing worldwide as regulatory authorities and dentists endorse and adopt what has come to be understood as the most effective and consistent means of disinfecting instruments prior to terminal sterilization.

HYDRIM C61w G4 Instrument Washer
Featuring a stainless steel exterior, the HYDRIM C61w G4 is equipped with the latest technology and the same connectivity attributes as the STATIM G4.
The HYDRIM C61w has a 6-full sized cassette capacity – the biggest of its kind. This means that the office can turnover 120 instruments in 35 minutes, start to dry.
The tabletop footprint allows for under counter or counter top installation, so that offices have flexibility in maximizing their workspace in the reprocessing area. In addition, the time saved by automated washing compared to ultrasonic cleaning is approximately 1 hour of labour for every nine procedural set-ups. The increased efficiency translates to the HYDRIM C61w G4 paying for itself in about 38 months.
Boasting the G4 technology, the HYDRIM C61w G4 is capable of emailing anyone the office chooses, including Technical Service personnel. It also allows remote access for easy troubleshooting. The automatic user interface software upgrades ensures the user will always have access to the most recent version and features, such as instructional slideshows of routine maintenance procedures, updated screensaver images, and more.
Designed from the ground-up by SciCan engineers, the HYDRIM C61w G4 encompasses over 10 years of experience in instrument washers. The modular design of the covers makes it easier to access specific components. The single screw type means it’s only one type of screwdriver that is needed to remove the panels. Handles and bumpers facilitate turning the unit on its back to access all the critical components, located underneath the unit. The HYDRIM C61w G4 was designed with the technician in mind.

This is a very exciting time for the body art industry, as the integration of the G4 technology in the HYDRIM and STATIM in a pioneering technology that makes it easier for body art studios to focus on their business, and not on administrative tasks.
The HYDRIM G4 is capable of communicating directly with service personnel or anyone you choose.
Should the HYDRIM G4 ever need attention, diagnostic information can be sent via email to pre-selected dealer service reps, significantly reducing down time.
Patient safety relies on attention to detail. The HYDRIM G4 supports verifiable processes that are PIN protected with user-defined IDs so that staff members can be required to authorize a cycle.
This encourages extra attention to process and creates a safer environment for both staff and patient.
With each cycle, information must be stored to protect your office and your patients. The integrated data logger store all cycle information for the lifetime of the unit.
A USB port allows for the manual retrieval of cycle history. The 10/100 Base-T Ethernet connection puts your PC in direct contact with your HYDRIM G4 and the RS232 serial printer port allows you to connect with an external printer.
HYDRIM MEETS THE INTERNET
A high-resolution, 65K color touch screen offers a vivid display of messages, current cycle information and customizable colors all with extraordinary clarity. Fully adjustable contrast levels let you optimize the screen to the lighting in your steri-center, and its 2.5-inch by 3-inch dimensions allow easy viewing of cycle information.

The Statim 2000 autoclave is the cornerstone of our body piercing sterilization. I am the manager and main piercer at our studio so my day can be very hectic trying to juggle both positions at the same time. With our Statim I can cut out the time it would take to pre-package and process all tools and jewelry. Not to mention the amount of waste that is accumulated in gloves and packaging by undertaking such an arduous and time consuming task. There are no expired packs that need to be reprocessed, and jewelry stock takes up a lot less space!
It is impressive and reassuring to our clients to see their entire piercing setup packed and run (with a pass/fail sterilization integrator) in front of them. While the six minute cycle is running I have time to discuss any concerns my clients may have as well as give them detailed aftercare instructions. The best part is the ability to transport the entire procedure setup to the piercing room in a sealed cassette that opens, once again, in front of the client.
I love — honestly love — my Statim and am currently considering getting a Statim tattooed on my body!
