FAQ What are the Differences Between TEEClean®, TD 100®, and TD 200®?

FAQ What are the Differences Between TEEClean®, TD 100®, and TD 200®?

Having just the right tool for any given job is essential to success. It’s no different when you’re considering purchasing an automated TEE ultrasound probe reprocessor for your facility. At CS Medical, we recognize that every facility has different preferences and needs, so we provide several state of the art options to take into consideration:


Similarities

To begin, it might be useful to outline what these three units have in common.

All three provide consistent and reliable high-level disinfection to one transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) ultrasound probe at a time. They each require the same utilities for installation: a dedicated GCFI outlet, a water source, and a drain. Each of these comes equipped with a vapor management system, keeping users safe from harmful fumes. All three provide users with a printed record at the conclusion of each cycle and maintenance event. Lastly, all three units have been cleared by the US FDA.

Differences

Between the three units there are several distinctions.

The TD 200 is distinct from the other two units in a few important ways. First, the TD 200 only takes three minutes for disinfection time while the TD 100 and TEEClean each require five minutes. The TD 200 uses a peracetic acid based TD-12® AquaCide® high-level disinfectant, while the TD 100 and TEEClean utilize glutaraldehyde based TD-5® or ortho-phthalaldehyde (OPA) based TD-8® high-level disinfectants. As a result, the TD 200 requires that users perform MRC verification of the disinfectant while the TD 100 and TEEClean require no MRC verification.

TEEClean also has some key features that set it apart. The most significant difference is that TEEClean cleans and disinfects TEE probes, unlike the other two which only disinfect. TEEClean also digitally retains up to 15,000 cycle records which can be recalled at any time and printed from the TEEClean’s onboard printer or transferred to a USB for desktop printing. Each TEEClean is equipped with a 0.005 micron water filter whereas the filter is optional on TD 100 and TD 200. TEEClean is also outfitted with a seven-inch color LCD touch screen which presents users with visual guides on how to operate the system.

About CS Medical

CS Medical LLC has pioneered the automated disinfection process for Transesophageal ultrasound probes with the development and release of the TD 100® Automated TEE Probe Disinfector. In 2005, the TD 100 was the first FDA cleared automated disinfection process with printed verification for Transesophageal ultrasound probes. During the disinfection process, the TEE probe receives high-level disinfection in (5) five minutes from TD-5® or TD-8® followed by (5) five complete rinse cycles before disinfection confirmation is acknowledged and a report is printed. The verification report indicates probe contact time with the high-level disinfectant as well as the average temperature of the single-use disinfectant during each cycle.

For more than 15 years and over 4 million high-level disinfections, the TD 100 Automated TEE Probe Disinfector has eliminated manual reprocessing of delicate and expensive TEE ultrasound probes while also providing a repeatable and FDA cleared disinfection process. The TEEClean® Automated TEE Probe Cleaner Disinfector will continue the TD 100's work by automating the required cleaning process for the TEE probe before high-level disinfection. TEEClean, with electronic record data logging, printed verification reporting, FDA cleared cleaning, and high-level disinfection will be the standard of care for TEE ultrasound probes.

CS Medical's TEE Complete Care® products provide quality device care and storage by minimizing healthcare operational costs, improving service readiness and increasing regulatory compliance.
