Getinge Wash Monitoring

Wash Monitoring

Used routinely, our 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.

Our monitors are designed for monitoring cleaning efficiency during the wash process. This minimizes the risk of process errors which can lower the risk of spreading infections in the healthcare environment. Effective cleaning may result in improved patient safety and reduced cost for healthcare facilities.

Overview

Wash monitors are used to verify that the result of the pre-cleaning process of an Ultrasonic Washer and the cleaning and disinfection processes performed in a Washer-Disinfector were satisfactory. The Wash Monitors provide the end user a quick and easy to read visible result.
