READ THIS SECTION BEFORE PLACING PRODUCT INTO SERVICE Indications for Use: The MiniFESS™ Sterilization Tray is used to organize and protect the MiniFESS instruments that are sterilized by a healthcare provider. The MiniFESS Sterilization Tray is intended to allow sterilization of the enclosed medical devices during a pre-vacuum steam sterilization cycle. The Tray is intended to be used in conjunction with a legally marketed wrap. The Tray is not intended on it’s own to maintain sterility.
Device Description: The MiniFESS Sterilization Tray is used to enclose and hold the MiniFESS instruments in an organized manner during the sterilization process and subsequent storage and transportation. The tray does not have direct patient contact. The tray by itself does not maintain sterility. The tray is composed of aluminum and has a rectangular base with latchable cover. The tray has perforations to allow sterilant penetration. The tray contains silicone instrument holders in the base and/or cover to hold, organize and protect the surgical instruments within the tray during the sterilization process and subsequent storage and transportation.
Sterilization Methods and Configurations » Autoclave Sterilization Parameter: Cycle : Pre-vacuum Temperature : 270° F (132° C) Exposure Time : 4 minutes Minimum Dry Time : 30 minutes
Limitation on Processing 1)
The end of useful life on the Tray is a minimum of 25 sterilization cycles. Inspect the tray before use for wear and damage caused by use and discontinue use if visible signs of wear are present including corrosion, mechanical failures, cracking, peeling, flaking, broken welds, damaged feet, damaged latches, damaged Hold-It / Hold-Down, discoloration, etc.
See TABLE 2 for sterilization methods and configurations.
DO NOT OVERLOAD the Tray or components.
DO NOT OVERLOAD individual Hold-It slots. Load only one instrument per Hold-It slot.
Inside of sterilizers, DO NOT STACK individually wrapped Trays or components. Separate wrapped Trays or components from each other or any other items on separate shelves of the sterilizer to allow for maximum sterilant flow.
The use of non absorbent tray liners (ie. silicone fingered organizing mat) can cause condensate to pool. If visible moisture is present, re-sterilize with a longer dry time.
Limitation on Processing (CONT.) 7)
No lumen claims as the MiniFESS instruments have no lumens.
The total weight of the system (e.g. tray and instrument load) must not exceed 25 pounds.
The MiniFESS instruments should be prepared and sterilized according to the instructions for use, see Instructions for Use, (REF 2448-001 & 3103-001).
WARNINGS Use only neutral (6.0 - 8.5) pH detergents with the sterilization tray to avoid damaging the finish. A detergent with a highly acidic or highly alkaline pH could permanently damage the anodized aluminum finish of the tray and metal components. Note : Clean and inspect tray according to the instructions provided prior to placing into service and after each subsequent use.
UNIVERSAL PRECAUTIONS • Personnel should wear all personal protective clothing and equipment as required by their employers / department’s operating procedures for the contamination level they will be exposed to. • Keep dissimilar metals separated during sterilization to prevent corrosion.
POINT OF USE Remove soil with disposable cloth/paper wipe.
CLEANING Equipment: Enzymatic detergent, brush and running water. Use neutral (6.0 – 8.5) pH solutions, mildly alkaline and free of sodium carbonate to avoid damaging finish on aluminum tray. DO NOT use scouring pads or abrasive cleaners. DO NOT store tray in liquid.
Manual Gross Decontamination: 1)
Remove all visible soil and contaminates using a soft bristle brush. The entire tray should be immersed while cleaning to aid in the removal of contaminates and to reduce splashing of detergent on personnel for a minimum of 2 minutes.
Rinse thoroughly for a minimum of 1 minute with clean water to remove all detergent. See rinsing instruction on the detergent label.
Ultrasonic clean: Prepare enzyme wash in an ultrasonic cleaning unit. Place a single tray in the detergent and run for a minimum of ten minutes. Rinse for a minimum of 2 minutes with cold tap water. Visually inspect tray for contaminates. Repeat the cycle if necessary to remove visible contamination.
Automated washer: The trays will complete the cleaning process in an automatic washer system. The validated cleaning process is reflected in TABLE 1. TABLE 1 : CYCLE

DISINFECTION The tray is intended to be terminally sterilized.
MAINTENANCE, INSPECTION AND TESTING
The tray may be reused until unacceptable deterioration such as corrosion, cracking, rust, peeling, flaking, discoloration, or mechanical failure occurs. Signs of mechanical failure include: • Broken or cracked corners or welds • Missing, torn or cut silicone inserts • Broken or non-working latches • Missing or damaged feet
