How to load the Ritter M9 Sterilizer

  1. Pouch or wrap items in FDA cleared sterilization pouches to preserve sterility after processing.
  2. Do not wrap items too tightly or the process may be compromised.
  3. Place all containers so that the opening allows steam to enter, condense, and drain from the container.
  4. Sterilize jointed items in an open position.
  5. Use the correct tray for the sterilizer as this can affect airflow.
  6. Place unwrapped items on a towel or absorbent paper.
  7. Pouches may overlap, but items should be single stacked not piled.
  8. Do not overload the sterilizer as this may compromise the process.
