Protein test for VeriTest Tags: detects and identifies protein contamination
Typically instruments get contaminated with microscopic fragments of operated tissue and body fluids.
Proteins are the building blocks of all living organisms, whether its body tissues, bacteria or viruses.
Thanks to this, detecting residual proteins on surgical instruments is the best way to evaluate their cleanliness. Contamination on surgical instruments is hazardous/ dangerous even in such small quantities invisible to the naked eye.
This is why we created VeriTest Blue. A protein detection system that exposes those difficult to see proteins by coloring them blue.
To verify the process, simply insert a visually-clean VeriTest Tag into the vial. If proteins are left on the VeriTest Tag after the cleaning process, the reagent will change color from light green-yellow to blue, or blue residue will be visible on the tag surface.

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.
