Live and digital in Cologne: Miele at the IDS – with lots of new features for dental practices

Gütersloh/Cologne, August 27, 2021 No. 061/2021
  • Miele thermal disinfectors and small sterilisers even more versatile in use

  • Safe hygiene with washing machines, dishwashers and air purifiers

After a period of forced absence, Miele is to be in live attendance once again at the IDS, the world's leading dental technology show in Cologne – and, at the same time, at the digital platform IDS Connect: with new products from the proven System4Dent portfolio which has been extended to cover all disciplines within dental medicine. Alongside thermal disinfectors and small sterilisers, air purifiers, washing machines and dishwashers provide protection against viruses and bacteria (September 22-25, Cologne, Building 10.2, Booth R 019).

With their new accessories, Miele thermal disinfectors can be put to universal use, even in the fields of orthodontics and implantology. For the machine-based cleaning and disinfection of multi-function syringes, Miele offers matching adapters which guarantee the secure positioning of cannulae from a variety of brands in upper and lower baskets. Furthermore, a new insert has been developed which considerably increases the capacity for trays and cartridges – an aspect which simplifies the reprocessing of surgical instruments. All holders can, if required, be inclined to now take 12 trays in the lower basket – twice as many as previously.

If phobic patients have to be treated with laughing gas, the reprocessing of double hoses and masks represents an additional challenge. From early 2022, Miele will be offering a space-saving solution: A new holder which can hold up to two hoses with a capacity that can even be increased to five. A matching mesh tray is available for reprocessable patients' masks.

Two years after their market launch, the four small Miele Cube and Cube X sterilisers offer even greater user convenience which simplifies the reprocessing of instruments in dental practices: these include a new and flexible holder which for the first time accommodates containers and cartridges with a maximum height of 70 mm. Practices which combine the use of a Cube or Cube X unit with a Miele thermal disinfector and hence require considerably more demineralised water now see their needs met fast in the form of Miele full demineralisation cartridges. Miele has also developed an app by the name of DataDiary for the wireless transmission of reprocessing data from up to 9 sterilisers. The most recent updated version is available for Android and iOS.

Everywhere in dental practices, Miele machines can reduce the risk of contracting an infection by preventing the spread of viruses and bacteria. Wherever frequent and thorough ventilation is not sufficient, the three mobile Miele AirControl air purifiers provide effective assistance: With an air throughput capacity of up to 3,000 cubic metres of air per hour, they are able to replace the entire air in a room six times an hour, whilst at the same time filtering the air as it passes. A five-stage filtration system which includes a high-performance HEPA H14 particulate filter, captures even the minutest of particles and renders more than 99.995% of all air-borne particles, viruses, bacteria and fungal spores innocuous.

Consequently, workwear should be washed in disinfection programmes with proven effectiveness followed by drying as germs propagate in clothing. Miele's commercial Little Giants with a load capacity of 7 kg therefore come with 15 programmes for reliable and tailored disinfection. Similarly, ProfiLine dishwashers from Miele ensure sparkling crockery in staff kitchens – and the ultimate in safety through a hygiene programme with high main wash and final rinse temperatures.
