Single Use HLD
Over Disinfections to Date
When determining the right disinfectant for your TD 100 Automated TEE Probe Disinfector or your TEEClean Automated TEE Probe Cleaner Disinfector remember that both the TD-5 and TD-8 have the same exact indications for use and perform inside the TD 100 and TEEClean identically. TD-5 and TD-8 are both heated and held in contact with the TEE probe for 5 minutes, and have been tested to effectively kill potentially harmful microorganisms without damaging the TEE probe.
For over 10 years, TD-5 has been used to complete millions of high-level disinfections with the TD 100. FDA cleared in 2016, TD-8 provides healthcare institutes with an additional disinfectant to be utilized in the TD 100 for HLD of the delicate TEE probes.
TD-12 AquaCide is a granulated biocide that, when used in conjunction with the TD 200 Automated TEE Probe Disinfector, becomes a liquid high-level disinfectant and has been FDA cleared with a 3 minute high-level disinfection claim.
Our sales representative was very knowledgeable about the system and what would work best for our facility. We were given a fair quote quickly and are pleased to implement this into our workflow.
The TD-8 disinfectant is a single-use, 0.59% Ortho-phthalaldehyde (OPA) based, high-level disinfectant that when used with the TD 100 or TEEClean, provides a five minute high-level disinfection of TEE probes.
The TD-5 disinfectant is a single-use, 2.65% glutaraldehyde based, high-level disinfectant that when used with the TD 100 or TEEClean, provides a five minute high level disinfection of TEE probes.
Each bottle of TD-12 AquaCide has the exact dose of granulated biocide formulation required to generate the necessary concentration of high-level disinfectant inside the TD 200 reservoir. The single-use container is inverted inside the TD 200 reservoir where it is automatically opened and prepared for conversion into a liquid disinfectant solution. To validate the TD-12 AquaCide minimum required concentration (MRC), QwikCheck™ Chemical Indicators are required.
QwikCheck Chemical Indicators
QwikCheck Chemical Indicators provide a rapid, convenient method to confirm the solution concentration of TD-12 AquaCide once mixed inside the TD 200 Automated TEE Probe Disinfector reservoir. QwikCheck is a single-use device that has been FDA cleared to validate the MRC (minimum required concentration) of TD-12 AquaCide. The indicators quickly and accurately confirm that the TD 200 has effectively mixed the TD-12 AquaCide granulated biocide into a high-level disinfectant solution at the desired concentration.
The TD 100 and TEEClean with either TD-5 or TD-8 as well as the TD 200 with TD-12 AquaCide have been tested by TEE probe manufacturers for material compatibility. Both the machine and disinfectants have been approved by these companies for use in the high-level disinfection of their individual TEE probes. Please contact your probe manufacturer for full details and compliance documentation.
