HU-FRIEDY: Pioneering Innovation with most Sophisticated Solution for Instrument Management

Innovative Infinity Series Cassettes designed for enhanced safety and maximized efficiency in the dental office

Cologne, 10th March 2015 – Hu-Friedy, a global leader in the manufacturing of dental instruments and products, introduces the full line of next generation of Instrument Management with its new IMS Infinity Series Cassettes and IMS Collection Kits designed for the most effective instrument processing and infection control.

Proper infection prevention is a top priority in dentistry. Hu-Friedy continues to lead the industry through innovation of dental instrument management systems that ensure better infection prevention while maximizing efficiency and ROI for the dental practice.

Capitalizing on 30 years of success in instrument management and infection prevention, Hu-Friedy developed the new IMS Infinity Series Cassettes to support the evolving instrument processing guidelines, and to increase dental practice efficiency while protecting patients, staff and instrument investments.

The IMS Infinity Series Cassettes are made from high quality, electropolished stainless steel which is more durable and less prone to breakage or warping. Hu-Friedy redesigned three key features of the cassettes to support the standards for instrument cleaning and handling:

  • A modern hole pattern with around 30 percent additional open area promotes increased water flow throughout the cassette. It is more compatible with all cleaning equipment, including automated washers.

  • An innovative silicone rail design reduces instrument contact allowing for more access to instruments while holding them safelyin place. These are available in eleven different colors, simplifying the identification of the cassettes.

  • A user-intuitive latch design for a more comfortable, ergonomic grasp and single-hand opening. Users can tell at a glance if the cassette is locked or unlocked.

Featuring contemporary design and functionality, the IMS Infinity Series Cassettes were selected as a finalist in the 2014 Medical DesignExcellence Awards®, the Medical Technology industry's premier design competition recognising innovation in medical device design.The pre vailing dental industry experts recommend instrument management systems involving cassettes because they minimize handling during the cleaning and sterilisation process. Reduced handling increases safety for dental staff and patients, and saves an average of 5-10 minutesper procedure.

It is critically important that dental practices adhere to the evolving standards and protocols of infection prevention and incorporate the most effective instrument sterilisation techniques. Even with the advancements in instrument management, it is known that many dental practices (it is estimated more than 87,000 only in U.S.) continue to use manual instrument sterilisation and processing methods. These manual methodsof cleaning and storing dental instruments may meet the minimum industrysafety criteria, but are time consuming and have an increased potential for human error.

Hu-Friedy’s Instrument Management System (IMS) is a complete solution that provides a safer, faster and more efficient way to process and organise instruments. IMS combines sterilisation, storage and organisation in one integrated cassette system. By standardising instrument  management from cleaning to chairside, dental practitioners generate more time and revenue while extending the useful life of their valuable instruments.

The Infinity Series Collection features a compilation of clinicians most popular procedural set ups, such as Exam kits, Surgical Implant & Sinus Lift Kit,Rubber Dam Kit.
