CS Medical's new enzymatic product specially designed for ultrasound probes: NUZyme™ sponges.
CREEDMOOR, NORTH CAROLINA – CS Medical is pleased to announce the release of a new enzymatic product specially designed for ultrasound probes, NUZyme sponges. NUZyme sponges are a single-use pre-saturated enzymatic applicator designed for endocavity ultrasound probes. NUZyme has a neutral pH, multi-tiered enzymatic detergent, specifically formulated to remove gross contaminants while targeting insoluble polysaccharides that encase biofilm, exposing them to the high-level disinfectant.
NUZyme sponges are individually packaged for easy single-use application. The enzymatic sponges have been treated with a preservative to inhibit and protect the product from mold and fungus and to preserve against bacteria growth.
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.
