Partnership With GE Healthcare

CS Medical is pleased to announce a strategic distribution agreement with GE Healthcare. GE will distribute the TD 100® Automated TEE Ultrasound Probe Disinfector to healthcare facilities in the United States.

The system is designed to provide high-level disinfection of transesophageal (TEE) echocardiogram ultrasound probes. It disinfects a TEE probe with TD-5™ disinfectant and provides printed verification upon completion of each successful disinfection cycle. The TD 100 is FDA 510k cleared and is the first and only automated TEE probe disinfector that has been tested and approved by the major TEE manufacturers.

HAIs are a major challenge for healthcare organizations:

  • HAIs cost the U.S. up to $147 billion annual in direct and indirect costs1
  • Up to 70% of HAIs are preventable using existing infection prevention strategies2
  • One of the Top 5 non-compliance findings by The Joint Commission is failure to reduce the risk of infections associated with medical devices or equipment3

CS Medical's President, Mark Leath stated, "This agreement demonstrates both companies' continued commitment to minimizing Healthcare Acquired Infections. CS Medical's TEE Complete Care product line, which includes the TD 100, provides healthcare professionals the tools to properly and effectively reprocess the delicate, semi-critical TEE ultrasound probe. The TD 100 has completed over 2.3 million successful disinfections."

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.
