Title: METHOD AND MACHINE FOR PROCESSING A MEDICAL INSTRUMENT
Abstract:
A method for processing a medical instrument is presented, said method including the steps of: providing a processing preparation, providing a dilution preparation, mixing a processing solution from the processing preparation and the dilution preparation, and processing the medical instrument with the processing solution, wherein the processing solution is mixed immediately before the processing. The method is distinguished by virtue of a mix ratio of processing preparation and dilution preparation being set individually depending on the time varying data that characterize the processing preparation. Likewise, a machine for processing a medical instrument (20) is presented, comprising a supply (1, 5) for a processing preparation, a supply (10, 11) for a dilution preparation, a mixing apparatus (2, 6, 12, 15) for mixing a processing solution from the processing preparation and the dilution preparation, a processing unit (17), in which the medical instrument (20) is processable by means of the processing solution, and a controller (25). The machine is distinguished by virtue of the controller (25) comprising means (27, 28, 29, 30) for capturing time varying data that characterize the processing preparation and by virtue of the controller (25) being configured to control the mixing apparatus (2, 6, 12, 15) in such a way that a mix ratio of processing preparation and dilution preparation is set individually depending on the time varying data.
