  • What is IMS? A system that standardises and combines the cleaning, sterilisation, storage and organisation of dental instruments
  • How does IMS work? IMS saves time by pre-sorting instruments by procedure and once configured the instrument set-up remains complete throughout instrument processing.
  • What does it do? Provides result-driven standards, while saving a practice 5–10 minutes per procedure and reducing the risk of potential sharps injuries.
