STERILIZATION WITH STERILIZATION CASSETTES
Sterilization and Sterilization Cassettes
The use of instrument cassettes facilitates instrument processing and can greatly enhance the organization of instruments. It also keeps all the instruments for a specific procedure together from the chairside procedure through cleaning, rinsing, drying, and sterilization. Following completion of dental treatment, instruments can be arranged in the cassette, transported to the instrument processing area, and placed in the ultrasonic cleaner as a unit. The cassette also can be rinsed and dried in this manner. In addition, a cassette system can reduce the direct handling of potentially contaminated instruments before sterilization. Furthermore, instruments prearranged in the cassette will require less handling following sterilization.
Perforated cassettes are preferable since completely solid containers will not allow steam or chemical vapor to reach the contents and allow sterilization to occur. Cassettes can occupy more space than individual packages, so you should consider the size of the sterilizer and amount of storage space available before purchasing any cassette systems.

Storage of Sterilized Instruments
Sterile items and disposable (single-use) items should be stored in an enclosed storage area (e.g., cabinet or drawer). Dental supplies and instruments should not be stored under sinks or in other locations where they might become wet. Sterilized items should remain wrapped until they are needed for use.
Unwrapped items are susceptible to contamination. Avoid storing items loose in drawers or cabinets because unwrapped items cannot be kept sterile. Items stored in this manner are subject to contamination from dust, aerosols generated during treatment, and the hands of personnel who must handle them.
