Once again, decision makers of the international healthcare industry were “spoiled for choice” when it came to the themes at the world’s largest medical trade fair MEDICA in Düsseldorf. On the four days of the fair, around 120,000 visitors enjoyed an offer that was more extensive and international than ever before. The fair took place from 12 to 15 November 2018. 5,273 exhibitors from 66 countries and an international share of more than 80 percent mean a new record for MEDICA. ❶
The trade fair was also a great success for MMM and the following innovations were presented:
APPcycles® - process optimization for MMM steam sterilizers and the MMM Batch Monitoring System (BMS)
The newly developed APPcycles® software is a configuration software with which the sterilization processes can be precisely adapted to the application without compromising on sterilization. As a result, the MMM steam sterilizers (only for Selectomat® PL type) can withstand the constantly high demands of instrument preparation and work in a time- and resource-optimized manner. The configuration of the APPcycles® takes into account the different nature (design, weight, material, etc.) of the various medical devices, as well as the selected type of packaging, whether container or soft packaging. The individual process phases were designed in accordance with ISO / TS 17665-3.
The Batch Monitoring System (BMS) - Helix Sets - of the MMM Group has been specially developed for the application-specific cycle control of sterilization performed with APPcycles®. Three different test items - Process Challenge Device (PCD) - simulate the different complexity and nature of the medical devices to be sterilized. The MMM BMS has been tested according to the specifications of DIN EN 867-5.
These two brand-new products are officially available:
- For retrofitting in already installed Selectomat PL: from January 2019
- For new deliveries of Selectomat PL: from April 2019
concept 15.30 - cleaning and disinfection systems for 15 or 30 DIN trays
The requirements of the design of a CSSD are varied and challenging. The MMM Group has developed the concept 15.30 to assist the design to deliver the optimal solution for high preparation capacity in a restricted space based on the specified area.
MMM interactive experience
At the MMM booth (hall 12 - booth number D66 with 163 sqm), the trade visitors were able to experience complete MMM interactive solutions on two workstations and to watch on different screens some 3D animations on various topics such as"mobile CSSD", "Customer Service", "APPcycles®", "CSSD 4.0" and "RUMED ACADEMY".
The activities on the MMM stand were versatile: every day our guests, partners and customers were spoiled with the traditional Bavarian Weisswurst and Brezn, two CSSD visits were organized at the University Hospital Düsseldorf, a diplomatic tour together with the "Exportinitiative Gesundheitswirtschaft" and the "Auswärtiges Amt" were received at the MMM booth and a get-together event celebrated.
The MMM Group would like to sincerely thank everyone for the tireless dedication that contributed to the achievement of this successful event.
