Dri-Scope Aid® Jet~Stream
The Dri-Scope Aid® Jet~Stream is available in two models. The model 1840P acts as a standalone unit where the internal pump provides constant flow and consistent pressure with repeatable results. The model 1840R is ideal for users that wish to use medical or instrument air.
The Dri-Scope Aid® Jet~Stream simultaneously supplies 0.1 micron HEPA-filtered air to all channels to aid in drying endoscopes. The dual displays increase efficiency by allowing two endoscopes to be connected individually with separate timers.
While previous tests conducted with forced air, cited by SGNA, state that after 10 minutes of forced air drying there was no microbial growth. Adversely after just 2 minutes of drying with compresses air the endoscopes were colonized with over million units of gram–negative bacteria.
Dri-Scope Aid® Cabinet
Drying the endoscopes 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 as cleaning and HLD (Kovaleva et al., 2013; Muscarella, 2006).
- Constant Flow
- Consistent Pressure
- Repeatable Results
The Dri-Scope Aid® Cabinet supplies HEPA-filtered air to all internal channels to aid in drying endoscopes with an automated drying cycle for improved turn-around time, and a continuous venting cycle for overnight storage. The Dri-Scope Aid® Cabinet converts your scope cabinet into a complete drying system.
NEW SteriView Instrument Inspection System
SteriView is the next generation of advanced small diameter, near field inspection scopes designed to provide ready access to and imaging of the interior chambers, lumens and working channels of endoscopes and surgical instruments.
According to the SGNA Standards of Infection Prevention in Reprocessing Flexible Gastrointestinal Endoscopes 2018 Visual inspection is an essential step to make sure the endoscope is visibly clean (AAMI, 2015; Rutala et al., 2008). According to Peterson (2017), all endoscopes and reusable accessories should be visually inspected during all stages of handling and reprocessing – before, during, and after use, in addition to during and after cleaning and before HLD. Visual inspection is not a guarantee that decontamination from manual cleaning is complete, but it can be considered a safety stop or “time out” to ensure the endoscope is visually clean before proceeding to the next step of HLD.
