Automated Reprocessor for Ultrasound Probes
The TD-100 is the only automated disinfector for transesophageal (TEE) probes and functions similarly to the widely used endoscopic reprocessors found in most CS and endoscopy departments. The TD-100 automatically completes the disinfection and rinse cycles in less than 18 minutes. The only operator action required takes less than one minute at the beginning of the cycle, freeing up staff and allowing more procedures to be performed with the same number of probes. The TD-100 uses a fresh bottle of TD-5 (a glutaraldehyde-based disinfectant) for each cycle, thus eliminates continuous MEC testing. The TD-5 bottle is pierced inside the TD-100, virtually eliminating splashes and spills common with bowls and tube systems. An advanced vapor management system adsorbs chemical vapors, further protecting the user.
