6 Steps to Successful Reprocessing of Diamond Knives

Diamond knife sterilization tray
  1. Manual Cleaning: Sterilization cannot take place if there is bioburden on the diamond knife. Accutome recommends you decontaminate your diamond knife with a diamond knife cleaning system, such as the Opti-Kleen before using an ultrasonic cleaner. Steam cleaning can also be done before using an ultrasonic cleaner.
  2. Ultrasonic Cleaning: Ultrasonic cleaning is a continuation of the cleaning process. Through the process of cavitation, ultrasonic cleaning can remove microscopic debris from your diamond knives. It’s a mechanical process that uses sound waves and an ultrasonic solution to produce the cavitation effect. After the cleaning, the knives need rinsing and drying.
  3. Inspection: Once the cleaning process is complete, the diamond knives undergo a magnified inspection. This inspection is a check for remaining debris and possible damage. If there is debris, then the knife must go through the cleaning process again.
  4. Sterilizing: As you can see, a lot occurs before you ever reach the actual sterilization phase. This is also the part of the process most are familiar with. Using a steam autoclave set at the right cycle is all there is to it, in most cases.
  5. Storage: You need sterile storage solutions that eliminate the possibility of contamination. Storage solutions are unique to the practice. Your needs will dictate what kind of storage solution is best for you and your practice.
  6. Handling: Handling is an adjunct of storage. Once you find a good storage medium, you have to store the diamond knives until they’re ready for use.

    Depending on the nature of the practice, more steps may become necessary. There are many considerations for each step that go beyond what’s listed here. You can read our comprehensive care and handling guide for diamond knives and other instruments here.
