Point of care (POC) ultrasound is becoming a cornerstone in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.
trophon offers convenient POC high level disinfection of ultrasound probes…
The joint Australiasian College for Infection Prevention and Control (ACIPC) and Australasian Society for Ultrasound in Medicine (ASUM) Guidelines for Reprocessing Ultrasound Transducers support point of care reprocessing of ultrasound probes when the products used are safe and measures are taken in designing clinical workflows.
New technologies such as trophon make POC disinfection possible, supporting the expansion of ultrasound procedures to many clinical settings including outpatient and primary care. trophon is regularly used at POC in the USA, UK, EU, Australia and New Zealand.
trophon is an easier way…
- trophon makes POC disinfection possible
- Installation of trophon is flexible, with no need for plumbing or special ventilation
- trophon offers a closed-door system, so there is no staff exposure to hazardous chemicals
- With POC ultrasound probe reprocessing, there is no need to transport probes to centralised areas – reducing the risk of recontamination and making workflow simpler
