Wash Monitors

Used routinely, Getinge Assured Wash Monitors provide independent verification that the cleaning process – whether in a washer-disinfector and/or additionally in an ultrasonic bath – is consistently providing the desired cleaning result.

The indicator is placed strategically in the device and provides an indication whether the process was sufficiently run or not. By verifying the critical process parameters, added assurance is provided that the equipment is cleaning as expected. Thus you minimise the risk of potential errors in the process and lower the risk of spreading infections in the healthcare environment. This means improved patient safety and reduced cost for the healthcare facility itself.

Overview

Wash monitors/indicators are used both to verify the result of the pre-cleaning – for instance using an ultrasonic cleaner indicator, but also to assure the main cleaning and disinfection process performed in a washer-disinfector was satisfactory.

A Protein test could preferably be used at the inspection of instruments to further detect protein residues on single cleaned and disinfected instruments – which would not be visible to the naked eye, for instance inside lumen instruments and endoscopes. With an instant protein reaction, these tests are quick and easy to use and can detect residual protein down to 1 microgram in less than 10 seconds. Synthetic Test soil can be used in order to simulate a ”real situation” when undergoing a validation or type testing a washer-disinfector or ultrasonic product.

Wash monitors

Wash Monitor

For use in washer-disinfectors.

Overview

Monitoring all phases of the wash process

Our wash monitoring indicators perform routine process performance tests in washer-disinfectors. They monitor all phases of the wash process, including proper spray arm operation, water impingement, proper detergent selection and levels, water temperature and washer loading. Monitoring each shelf of each washer-disinfector enables you to ensure that all facets of the machine are operating properly and that efficient cleaning is achieved. The indicator is inserted into a reusable Wash Monitor Holder and placed face up in a tray.

The indicator is designed to meet the requirements of EN ISO15883.

Features

  • For use in washer-disinfectors
  • For use with the re-usable Getinge Assured Wash Monitor Holder that mimics an instrument
  • Test-soil is designed to parallel the removal of blood and tissue from surgical instruments
  • No harmful components with non-toxic, synthetic soil (no actual blood components from any source are contained in the test-soil)
  • Red = the cleaning process is insufficient, Clear = the cleaning process is sufficient
  • Recordable

Test soil

Test Soil

Synthetic test soil formulated with protein, lipids and polysaccharides to mimic surgical soil.

Overview

Synthetic Test soil simulating a “real situation”

Used as a process challenge in the commissioning of washer-disinfectors, Getinge Assured Test Soil is applied to instruments and allowed to dry. After drying, the instruments are washed accordingly and then inspected for cleanliness. If no test soil is visible after the wash process, the process is proven to be efficient.

All Getinge tests are designed in accordance with EN ISO 15883.

Features

  • Synthetic test soil formulated with protein, lipids and polysaccharides to mimic surgical soil
  • Used as process challenge in the commissioning of washer-disinfectors
  • Shipped in powder form and then activated at the point of use with water
  • To be applied on instrument surfaces, lumens and equipment
  • If test soil is not visible after the wash process, the process is proven to be efficient
