chemo-thermally) and dry a wide range
of reusable medical and laboratory
products.
Follow the medical product
manufacturer's instructions (according
to EN ISO 17664) on how to process
their items by machine.
Examples of application areas:
– surgical instruments,
– minimally invasive surgical
instruments,
– anaesthetic and intensive care
instruments,
– baby bottles and teats,
– operating theatre shoes,
or
– laboratory equipment used in
research and development,
– laboratory equipment used in areas
of analysis and specimen taking,
– laboratory equipment used in
micro-biology and biotechnology.

10
The term "item to be processed" is used
throughout these instructions to refer to
products which are not named
specifically.
Processing medical instruments by
machine achieves reproducible results,
and should be used in preference to
processing them by hand.
For the protection of personnel or
patients, disinfection should be carried
out thermally, e.g. using the DESIN
varioTD programme.
The parameters for thermal disinfection
according to EN ISO 15883-1 (A0) are
90°C (+5°C, -0°C) with a holding time
of five minutes (A0 3000). An A0 value of
3000 is suitable for deactivating the
HBV virus.
National health and safety regulations
regarding disinfection must also be
observed.
The cleaning programme as well as any
chemical agents must be chosen
according to the type of soiling and
load being processed.
The agents used for processing the
products should be selected according
to the level of cleaning required as well
as the area of analysis or analytical
method where the product will be used.
Intended use
The cleaning result must ensure that
the instruments have been disinfected
correctly, that no residues are left
behind, that subsequent sterilisation
can be carried out and that the
instruments can be used again safely.
Medical products are best reprocessed
using the DESIN varioTD programme.
The use of a suitable carrier (mobile
unit, module, insert etc.) is important to
ensure the adequate cleaning of
instruments and products. Examples
are given in the section "Areas of
application".
The washer-disinfector is programmed
to carry out the final rinse with mains
water or with processed water of a
quality to suit the application (e.g. aqua
destillata, purified water, de-ionised
water, demineralised water). The water
quality is of particular importance for
applications requiring analytically clean
laboratory glassware.
This machine complies with EN ISO
15883 for validation purposes.

Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should be recycled.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation.
Disposal of your old machine
Electrical and electronic machines
often contain materials which, if
handled or disposed of incorrectly,
could be potentially hazardous to
human health and to the environment.
They are, however, essential for the
correct functioning of your machine.
Please do not therefore dispose of it
with your general waste.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre or contact your dealer for
advice. Ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored

Water softener
In order to achieve good cleaning
results, the washer-disinfector needs to
operate with soft water. Hard water
results in the build-up of calcium
deposits on the load and inside the
wash cabinet.
Mains water with a hardness level
higher than 0.7 mmol/l (4° dH – German
scale) needs to be softened. This takes
place automatically in the integrated
water softener.
– The water softener requires
reactivation salt.
– The washer-disinfector must be
programmed to correspond to the
water hardness in your area.
– Your local water authority will be able
to advise you on the water hardness
in your area.
Where the water hardness fluctuates
e.g. between 1.4 - 3.1 mmol/l (8 17 °dH German scale), always
programme the washer-disinfector to
the higher value (17 °dH or 3.1 mmol/l
in this example).
The built-in water softener has
settings from 1 °dH - 60 °dH (0.2 10.8 mmol/l).
For future servicing it is useful to make
a note of your water hardness level.
Enter the water hardness below:
°dH

Water softener
Filling the salt reservoir
Only use special coarse grained
reactivation salt with granules of
approx. 1 - 4 mm. Do not use other
types of salt such as cooking salt,
agricultural grade or gritting salt. These
may contain insoluble additives which
can impair the functioning of the water
softener. If in doubt consult the Miele
Professional Department.
^ Remove the bottom basket from the
machine.
^ Unscrew the salt reservoir cap.
Before filling the salt reservoir with
reactivation salt for the first time, you
must fill it with approx. 2.5 litres of
water to enable the salt to dissolve.
Once the washer-disinfector has
been used, there is always sufficient
water in the reservoir.
The salt reservoir holds approx.
2.5 kg of salt.
,Inadvertently filling the salt
reservoir with cleaning agent will
damage the water softener.
Before filling the salt reservoir make
sure that you have picked up the
right packet of reactivation salt.
^ Place the funnel provided in position.
^ Fill carefully with salt.
As it is poured in, displaced water will
run out.
18

Add salt indicator
^ Remove the funnel and wipe any
residual salt off the seal and the
screw threads on the socket.
^ Screw the cap back on firmly.
^ Run the PRE-RINSE D programme to
remove any traces of salt from the
cabinet.
Reactivation takes place automatically
during a programme.
The programme sequence indicator
light a k lights up whilst this is
happening.
^ Add salt when the Add salt b k
indicator lights up.
The programme sequence may be
delayed for a few minutes after the
start of the PRE-RINSE D
programme. This is not a fault. The
water softener is being reactivated.

Areas of application
This washer-disinfector can be fitted
with a top and bottom basket or a
mobile unit. Various inserts and special
baskets are also available for a wide
variety of instruments and utensils.
Select baskets and inserts which are
appropriate for the application.
Notes on the individual areas of
application and examples of loading
are given on the following pages.
Before starting a programme you
should carry out a visual check on
the following:
– Is everything correctly
loaded/connected for cleaning?
– Are the lumen or necks of hollow
instruments positioned so that water
can access them unhindered?
– Are the spray arms clean and do
they rotate freely?
– Are the filters clean? Remove any
coarse soiling and clean them
properly if necessary.
– Is the adapter connecting the water
supply to the spray arms/jets
correctly connected?
– Are all chemical containers filled
sufficiently?
At the end of each programme:
– Carry out a visual check of the load
for cleanliness.
– Check that all hollow instruments are
still securely located on their jets.
,Any instruments that have
become disconnected from the
adapters during processing must be
re-processed.
– Are the lumen of hollow instruments
completely clean and clear of
contamination?
– Check that jets and connectors are
securely connected to the baskets or
inserts.
Loading the machine
– Arrange the load so that water can
access all surfaces. This ensures
that they get properly cleaned.
– Do not place items to be cleaned
inside other pieces where they may
be concealed.
– Hollow instruments must be
thoroughly cleaned, internally and
externally.
– Ensure that instruments with long
narrow hollow sections can be
flushed through properly before
placing them in inserts or connecting
them to jets.
– Hollow vessels should be inverted
and placed in the correct baskets
and inserts to ensure that water can
flow in and out of them unrestricted.
20
Areas of application
– Deep-sided items should be placed
at an angle to make sure water runs
off them freely.
– Tall, narrow, hollow items should be
placed in the centre of the baskets to
ensure better water coverage.
– Lightweight items should be secured
with a cover net (e.g. an A 6) and
small items placed in a mesh tray to
prevent them blocking the spray
arms.
– Mobile units or baskets with an
adapter must engage correctly.
– The spray arms must not be blocked
by items which are too tall or which
hang down in their path.
– It is advisable to use instruments
made of surgical steel only, as these
are not susceptible to corrosion.
– Nickel-plated instruments and
coloured anodised aluminium
instruments are not suitable for
machine processing.
– Plastic items must be thermally
stable.
Preparing the load
^ Empty all containers before loading
into the machine (paying particular
attention to regulations regarding
infectious diseases and epidemics).
^ Remove culture medium (agar) from
Petri dishes.
^ Pour away blood or other body fluids,
and remove any dried on blood.
^ Remove all stoppers, corks, labels,
sealing wax residues, etc.
,Ensure that acids and residual
solvents, especially hydrochloric
acid or chlorides, do not get into the
wash cabinet.
In certain cases, soiling that is difficult
or impossible to remove, e.g. silicone
grease, sticky labels, etc., which could
affect the cleaning results, must be
removed manually before being
machine processed.
It is the user's responsibility to decide
whether items contaminated with
substances such as microbiological
material, pathogens, facultative
pathogens, genetically modified
material etc. should be sterilised before
being machine processed.
Contaminated instruments can be
placed directly in the baskets or inserts
in the machine without pre-treatment
(no soaking required).
21

Areas of application
Laboratory utensils
Wide-necked laboratory utensils, e.g.
beakers, wide-necked conical flasks
and Petri dishes, or cylindrical vessels,
e.g. test tubes, are washed and rinsed
internally and externally by the rotating
spray arms.
To achieve this, they need to be
positioned in a full, half or quarter
insert, and then placed in an empty
lower basket or into an upper basket
with a spray arm.
For narrow-necked utensils, e.g.
narrow-necked conical flasks, round
bottomed flasks, measuring flasks and
pipettes, a mobile injector unit or
injector basket is required.
The following instructions relate only to
basic preparation and loading of
laboratory utensils.
– Petri dishes and similar should be
placed in the correct insert with the
soiled side facing the centre.
– Place pipettes upright in the insert,
with the opening uppermost.
– Use nets to secure items in order to
avoid glass breaking.
– Quarter inserts should be placed in
the mobile unit with at least 3 cm

specifically for use in washerdisinfectors and make sure you
follow the manufacturer's
instructions. Pay particular attention
to information regarding toxic
residues.
Adding rinsing agent
The dispensing of rinsing agent in
the final programme block via
DOS 2 has to be activated by a
Miele service technician.
Rinsing agent is necessary to ensure
water does not cling and leave marks
on items, and to help items dry faster
after they have been washed.
^ Undo the screw cap.
Because residues of rinsing agent
remain on the surface of items after
they have dried, it is important to check
the suitability of the rinsing agent being
used.
Rinsing agent is poured into the
storage reservoir, and the amount set is
dispensed automatically.
The rinsing agent reservoir holds
approx. 180 ml.
,Only fill the rinsing agent
reservoir with rinsing agent
formulated for washer-disinfectors.
Do not fill it with cleaning agent.
This would damage the reservoir.
30
^ Add rinsing agent until the level
indicator is dark (see arrow in the
illustration). Use a funnel if
necessary.
^ Screw the cap back on.
^ Mop up any spilt rinsing agent. This
prevents over-foaming occurring
during the next programme.

Adding neutralising agent
Neutralising agent (pH-level: acidic)
neutralises residues of alkaline cleaning
agents on the surface of instruments
and utensils.
If the cleaning agent being used is
mildly alkaline, you will need to use
a phosphoric acid based
neutralising agent.
If using a neutral enzyme based
liquid cleaning agent, you will need
to use a citric acid based
neutralising agent.
^ When refilling the red container with
neutralising agent you could place it
on the open wash cabinet door or on
a surface which is easy to clean.
^ Insert the siphon tube into the
container and screw on securely
(observing the colour code).
The neutralising agent is automatically
dispensed in the programme stage
