Devices that remain ‘dirty’ after washing can be a prime source of infection, resulting in canceled operations, closed theatres, and, worse still, having a negative effect on patient safety.
The ProReveal Protein Detection Test is a fluorescence-based patented test for checking the presence of residual protein on surgical instruments after any cleaning process.
The ProReveal Protein Detection system is cost-effective, delivers objective, visible, and quantifiable results, and removes doubts about cleaning results.
The quality of any cleaning process depends on a number of variables. An effective test is required to ensure surgical instruments are cleaned to residual protein standards.
Commonly used tests include on-instrument swab tests or visual inspections. However, it has been found that neither of these can detect the lower levels of protein that can remain on an instrument after washing and can be a significant source of infection, particularly with prions such as vCJD.
Colorimetric or, for more accuracy, fluorescent testing methods provide the best analysis of cleaning effectiveness.
The ProReveal is the only device that shows you the location and quantity of residual protein on your surgical instruments.
Let ProReveal provide you the confidence that your cleaning processes are doing the best for your patients.
