TRICOR-Systems Inc. Launches Dri-Scope Aid®2 with Dual Timer

Dri-Scope Aid®2 Assists in the Drying of the Internal Channels of an Endoscope.

 Elgin, IL – 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.” “Drying is as important to the prevention of disease transmission and nosocomial infection as cleaning and HLD.”

A heightened awareness has been focused around the drying and storage of endoscopes in recent articles and societal meetings.  “Currently the options are extremely limited to aid in the drying of internal channels.  Budget constraints and space limitations has slowed the adoption of drying these internal channels.  The Dri-Scope Aid®2 is the answer to alleviating both of these restrictions,” said George Cronin, National Sales Manager.  “The Dri-Scope Aid®2 is the solution scope users have been searching for to easily push HEPA-filtered air through all internal channels of the scope.”

TRICOR-Systems Inc. is excited to announce the new Dri-Scope Aid®2 with dual timer. The dual timer will allow the operator to hook up two endoscopes (Olympus, Pentax, and Fuji) with independent start and stop times.  The individual timers will help with the flow and turnaround time in the reprocessing room.

The Dri-Scope Aid®2 unit features a daily disposable tubing assembly, individual scope connectors and is capable of processing two endoscopes at once. The scopes are simply attached to the daily tubing assembly via the connectors, the required time is set, and the start button pressed to initiate a continuous flow of HEPA-filtered air through the scope(s), freeing the technician for other duties.

Timing can be set between 1 and 99 minutes using the unit’s digital display and touch pad controls. The Dri-Scope Aid® unit is compact (8.2 inches tall by 6.1 inches wide and 6.5 inches deep), and weighs only 4.5 pounds. It is designed for countertop, wall mount or pole mount use.
