Glycinex™ Disinfectant Neutralizer

Glutaraldehyde and OPA Neutralizer

Glycinex™ Fast: Glycinex™ completely neutralizes disinfectant in 5 minutes. No overnight waiting to dispose of waste.

Easy: Add the recommended amount of Glycinex™ crystals to your disinfectant. A noticeable color change will occur during deactivation.

Economical: Glycinex™ converts Glutaraldehyde and Ortho-Phthaladehyde into a non-toxic, pH-neutral compound in 5 minutes. It reduces the monetary and time costs associated with hazardous waste disposal. No more filling out and documenting hazardous waste manifests when you use Glycinex™.

Safe: Glycinex™ has no corrosive acids or unstable oxidizers. Heating is not required. This means that larger volumes of Glutaraldehyde and Ortho-Phthaladehyde based products can be safely neutralized without dangerous heat build-up. Glycinex™ and the neutralized product that is formed are not harmful to active bacteria used in treating sewage and sewer sludge.

Glycinex™ uses Glycine as its sole active ingredient.

Qwik Dry TEE Probe Drying Cloth

QwikDry Tee Probe Drying Cloth

QwikDry ClothEffectively removes moisture and slides freely over TEE probe shaft
The introduction of potentially harmful contaminates after a TEE ultrasound probe has been properly high-level disinfected is a reality in today’s healthcare environment.

A properly dried TEE ultrasound probe, prior to storage, is critical in minimizing the possibility of water-borne bacteria contamination during storage. A wet probe, stored in a plastic sheath or hung freely for drying, can allow airborne contaminates to foster growth of spores and bacteria. Some of the current methods employed for drying after high-level disinfection include; reusable sponge, paper towel, cotton cloth, and surgical gauze. These solutions, though effective in the drying of a TEE probe, could introduce outside contaminates. The sponge, if reused, could foster spore and bacteria growth while the towel, cloth and gauze could contain outside contaminates introduced during the manufacturing or handling process prior to being used.

QwikDry removes the current issues associated with other drying methods employed in today’s healthcare facilities. QwikDry is an individually packaged, irradiated cloth with a super absorbent matrix and ultra-smooth texture surface that effectively removes moisture and slides freely over the TEE ultrasound probe shaft. Each cloth is designed for single-use, thus removing the potential for cross-contamination and potential microbiological growth. The QwikDry TEE probe drying cloths are the next solution for healthcare professional that are tasked with minimizing healthcare associated infections.

QwikDry TEE probe drying cloths have been developed to give healthcare professionals the added confidence of properly dried ultrasound TEE probes prior to re-use or storage. The super absorbent pad effectively removes moisture from TEE ultrasound probes without damaging the probe or sticking to the ultrasound probe during the drying process. The QwikDry cloth is simple to use and is packaged in an easy to open Chevron pouch. The QwikDry cloth can be opened prior to removal of the TEE probe from the TD 100® Automated TEE Probe Disinfector. Once the disinfected TEE probe is removed from the TD 100, simply apply the QwikDry cloth to the insertion shaft of the probe and slide it freely down the shaft to absorb any residual moisture.

TD-12® PAA High-Level Disinfectant

TD-12 is a granulated peracetic acid based high-level disinfectant used with the TD 200® automated TEE probe disinfector. The TD 200 is a microprocessorcontrolled, low-temperature high-level disinfection method for TEE ultrasound probes. The disinfectant, 0.3% precursors to peracetic acid, and an anticorrosive agent are supplied in a single-dose container. The container is punctured at the time of use, immediately prior to closing the lid and initiating the cycle. The concentrated precursors
to peracetic acid are diluted to 0.3% or 3000 ppm peracetic acid solution, with a pH of 8.5 to 9, within the TD 200 disinfection reservoir at a constant temperature of 38°C. The peracetic acid solution is circulated within the disinfection system of the device for 3 minutes, high-level disinfecting the TEE probe.

TD-12 has been evaluated and approved for use to high-level disinfect TEE probes
by various manufacturers.

FEATURES:

  • Single dose packaging – No MRC testing required
  • Single-use container is pierced inside the machine
  • Chemical splashes, spills, and vapors are contained through an advanced vapor management system within the TD 200
  • High-Level Disinfection in 3 minutes when used with the TD 200

TD-5

TD-5 is a glutaraldehyde-based, high-level disinfectant made specifically for the TD-100.

The TD-5 disinfectant is a single-use high-level disinfectant that is used exclusively with the TD-100. The TD-5 has been tested to effectively kill potentially harmful microorganisms without damaging the TEE probe. Since the TD-100 uses a fresh TD-5 bottle for each cycle, the need for continuous MEC testing is eliminated.

The single-use one-pint container is pierced inside the machine. Splashes, spills, and vapors are contained. An advanced vapor management system within the TD-100 adsorbs vapors during disinfection.

TD-8

The TD-8 disinfectant is a single-use, 0.59% Ortho-phthalaldehyde (OPA) based, high-level disinfectant that when used with the TD 100, provides a five minute high-level disinfection of TEE probes.

The TD 100 with  TD-8 has been tested by TEE probe manufacturers for material compatibility. Both the machine and disinfectants have been approved by these companies for use in the high-level disinfection of their individual TEE probes. Please contact your probe manufacturer for full details and compliance documentation.

FEATURES:

  • Single dose packaging – No MRC testing required
  • Single-use, one-pint container is pierced inside the machine
  • Chemical splashes, spills, and vapors are contained through an advanced vapor management system within the TD 100
