New chemistry-based system by Miele Professional is simple, fast, and direct

ProCare offers significant savings in time and money compared to existing technologies that technicians and sterile processing department managers are accustomed to using

Test instruments after processing to assure they are free of blood and protein soils where it matters most – on the surgical instruments themselves. Miele, the world’s leading manufacturer of premium domestic appliances, introduces ProCare Protein Check, a unique approach to verifying surgical instruments are effectively cleaned. The ProCare liquid is applied directly to the surface of surgical instruments immediately after processing. After 3 minutes, users visually determine the presence or absence of protein soils. The performance of the cleaning system is assessed immediately without running additional cycles using testing indicators. ProCare Protein Check offers a direct testing solution for sterile processing departments, ambulatory surgery centers, outpatient clinics and anywhere surgical instruments are processed.

ProCare Protein Check is a specially formulated liquid dye. Using the dropper tip, users apply 0.25 ml of the dye to the instrument surface. After 3 minutes the instrument is rinsed with water. Any remaining dye provides visual evidence of the presence of residual protein resulting from denatured, coagulated blood or other proteinaceous substances. A single 12 ml container of ProCare Protein Check may be used for up to approximately 50 test applications.

“Our ProCare Protein Check offers significant savings in time and money when compared to existing technologies that most technicians and sterile processing department managers are accustomed to using,” says Ken Austin, a director with the Professional Division at Miele Inc. “And, it provides the same ability for facilities to adhere to industry best practice guidelines, such as AAMI ST79,” he continued.
