Learn how to use our software solutions for professional documentation and approval of the entire instrument decontamination.
Documenting the washer-disinfector load
The intuitive documentation and approval software MELAtrace Pro combines the steps of cleaning and disinfection with sterilization. For maximum transparency, the loading of the washer-disinfector can be documented with individual elements or standard batches.
Approving the washer-disinfector batch
After successful cleaning and disinfection, the approval of the washer-disinfector batch is performed with MELAtrace Pro: You can check the program log with all relevant process parameters in order to approve the load elements properly.
Documenting the steam sterilizer load
After the washer-disinfector batch has been approved, the steam sterilizer load will be documented. To link the process steps of cleaning and disinfection with sterilization, simply select the desired load elements from the previous washer-disinfector batch.
Approving the steam sterilizer batch
The documentation process with MELAtrace Pro ends with the approval and marking of the sterilization batch. Evaluate the program log with all relevant process parameters as well as the colour change of the batch indicator. After batch approval, you will be forwarded to the decontamination report.
Documenting the Careclave Load
The loading of Careclave can be documented with MELAtrace Pro for maximum transparency. The chamber concept offers you maximum flexibility: Careclave can be loaded either only with dental hollow-body instruments in the Carebox, only with instruments on trays or in sterile containers, or - as in our example - simultaneously with instruments in the Carebox and in the sterilization chamber.
Approving the Careclave Batch
The documentation process for Careclave in conjunction with MELAtrace Pro ends with the approval of the batch. For this purpose, evaluate the program log with all relevant process parameters as well as the color change of the batch indicator.
Defining load elements
MELAtrace Pro guarantees complete traceability of the entire instrument decontamination process. In this video tutorial, we will show you how to create, edit and delete load elements.
Defining standard batches
Benefit from standard batches for an even more efficient loading process: In this video tutorial we will show you how to create, edit and delete standardized loading patterns.
Defining sterilization containers
You can deploy sterilization containers in MELAtrace Pro for loading the steam sterilizer. In this video tutorial, we will show you how to create, edit and delete sterilization containers such as MELAstore- Boxes.
If you do not approve load elements in MELAtrace Pro, your decision can be documented with a reason. In this video tutorial, we will show you how to create, edit and delete reasons for the approval process.
Adding user and practice information
The practice name and address are already pre-filled in MELAtrace Pro. In this video tutorial, we will show you how to add further practice information and create new user accounts for the documentation and approval process in MELAtrace Pro.
Adapting the Options
Adapt MELAtrace Pro even better to your instrument decontamination workflow: In this video tutorial, we will show you how to make further settings in the documentation and approval software.
Saving log files and the database
With regular data backups, you can provide long-term proof of a successful instrument decontamination process. In this video tutorial, we will show you how to save the program and approval logs as well as the MELAtrace database.
Activating authentication and auto-logout
To ensure that only trained practice personnel performs the documentation and approval process, you have to log in with your user data before starting MELAtrace Pro. In this video tutorial, we will show you how to activate user authentication before the process steps and the auto-logout.
Creating barcode lists
Barcode lists facilitate the loading of the washer-disinfector and steam sterilizer: In this video tutorial, we will show you how to create barcode lists for load elements, standard batches and sterilization containers.
Archive and manage logs
With just a few clicks, you can use MELAtrace Pro to release the batches and archive the relevant program logs and batch approvals in a tamper-proof reprocessing log. In this tutorial, we will show you how you can subsequently manage or print the text, graphic and reprocessing logs in the log archive.
MELAtrace and MELAtrace Pro are software solutions for professional documentation and approval of the entire instrument decontamination with your MELAG devices. With the help of the software, you can have the logs of your devices automatically transferred via the practice network.
