There has been a lot of increased interest placed on drying and storage of endoscopes over the past year, even though it has been recommended by every society and in all endoscope IFU’s for a long time. The need for extended time to the reprocessing cycle and space have made adoption difficult.
ELGIN, Ill. (PRWEB) May 01, 2018
TRICOR Systems Inc. designer and manufacturer of the Dri-Scope Aid® and Dri-Scope Aid® 2 is excited to announce the launch of the Dri-Scope Aid® Cabinet (DSAC) system. The DSAC converts existing scope cabinets into a drying system. Up to 16 endoscopes can be processed with a short cycle for between uses and a longer venting cycle for overnight storage. Assisting in the drying process by pumping HEPA-filtered air through the internal channels of endoscopes, the DSAC helps reduce the chances of biofilm development and microbial growth due to water born bacteria.
SGNA Standards of Infection Control in Reprocessing of Flexible Gastrointestinal Endoscopes states: “Drying the endoscope after every reprocessing cycle, both between patient procedures and before storage, is a requisite practice crucial to the prevention of bacterial transmission and nosocomial infections.” They go on to say, “Drying is as important to the prevention of disease transmission and nosocomial infection as cleaning and HLD (High Level Disinfection).”
“There has been a lot of increased interest placed on drying and storage of endoscopes over the past year, even though it has been recommended by every society and in all endoscope IFU’s for a long time. The need for extended time to the reprocessing cycle and space have made adoption difficult," said George Cronin, National Sales Manager. “The Dri-Scope Aid® Cabinet removes the concern over space and helps to maintain a quick turn-around time.”
The Dri-Scope Aid® Cabinet also includes an easily identifiable visual display indicating the current status of the endoscope. The Dri-Scope Aid® Cabinet comes in a few different sizes allowing for up to 16 scopes depending on your current scope cabinets. Using the individual scope connectors, it will hook up to all major brands of endoscopes. The scope connectors help to alleviate concerns over cross contamination.
TRICOR-Systems Inc. is excited to announce the new Dri-Scope Aid® Cabinet.
