Nanosonics develops easy to use, environmentally friendly and quality assured products for the infection control market
Every aspect of Nanosonics’ activities from product design, manufacturing, packaging and operations are focused on the dual objectives of delivering superior cost effective healthcare, while ensuring the highest standard of occupational health and environmental safety.
The next generation in Ultrasound Probe Disinfection
Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs) are infections caused by a wide variety of common and unusual bacteria, fungi, and viruses during the course of receiving medical care. HAIs are the fourth largest cause of fatality in the United States each year. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that as many as two million people suffer from HAIs annually in the U.S, resulting in more than 100,000 deaths.
Nanosonics is committed to preventing HAIs, through our first product, trophon® EPR. Trophon® EPR is the next generation in ultrasound probe disinfection. Nanosonics identified an unmet need in the market for fast, safe, eco-friendly probe disinfection. This unique platform technology effectively disinfects the probe including the shaft and handle - in just seven minutes between patients.
Disinfection and sterilisation of medical equipment are essential for ensuring there is no transmission of infectious pathogens between patients thereby reducing HAIs. Not all medical instruments can be sterilised due to heat sensitivity and therefore the FDA & CDC recommend high level disinfection (HLD) of these devices. Intracavity ultrasound probes are one such medical device that require high level disinfection.
Clean Ultrasound Probe Cover
A simply smarter storage solution to protect intracavity and surface ultrasound probes from the risk of recontamination (through handling or the environment) after high level disinfection.
Correct storage is an important step in reprocessing ultrasound probes. Clean Ultrasound Probe Covers give you a simple way to deliver best practice patient care, and can be used at the point of care, so probes are ready for immediate reuse.
- • Qty: 100 Clean Ultrasound Probe Covers per carton.
- • Size: 14” long (36cm) x 4.3” wide (11cm).
- • Application: All intracavity probes and most surface probes on the trophon validated probes list.
- • Use: After every HLD of a probe (unless the probe will be used immediately).
- • Manufactured: In an ISO certified clean room (ISO class 8).
- • Documentation: trophon Printer labels can be quickly attached to the covers, eliminating a separate workflow step to mark probes as clean.
