High-Level Disinfectants

TD-5® and TD-8® provide high-level disinfection in 5 Minutes when used with the TD 100®

Single Use HLD

5-minute disinfection and NO MRC testing required

TD‑5® and TD‑8® provide high-level disinfection in 5 Minutes
when used with the TD 100

The TD 100 Automated TEE Probe Disinfector is exclusively designed to provide a fast and repeatable high-level disinfection cycle. At disinfection cycle conclusion, a verification report is provided to the technician that contains:

  • Date, Time
  • Probe Number, User Number, Disinfectant Type and Lot Number
  • Contact Time and Temperature of the single-use high-level disinfectant

This report can be retained in the HLD TRACKER for later reference or audit reporting.

When determining the right disinfectant for your TD 100 remember that both the TD-5 and TD-8 have the same exact indications for use and perform inside the TD 100 identically. Both chemistries, TD-5 and TD-8 are heated and held in contact with the TEE probe for 5 minutes. Both TD-5 and TD-8 have been cleared by the FDA for use in the TD 100 to high level disinfect TEE probes by a trained professional.

For over 10 years, the TD 100 has used TD-5 to complete more than 2.5 million high-level disinfections. TD-8, cleared in 2016, provides healthcare institutes with a second cleared disinfectant to be utilized in the TD 100 for HLD of the delicate TEE probes.

TD-8

The TD-8 disinfectant is a single-use, 0.59% Ortho-phthalaldehyde (OPA) based, high-level disinfectant that when used with the TD 100 provides a five minute high-level disinfection of TEE probes. TD-8 has been tested to effectively kill potentially harmful microorganisms without damaging the TEE probe. Since the TD 100 uses a fresh TD-8 bottle for each disinfection cycle; the need for continuous MRC testing is eliminated.

TD-5

The TD-5 disinfectant is a single-use, 2.65% glutaraldehyde based, high-level disinfectant that when used with the TD 100 provides a five minute high level disinfection of TEE probes. TD-5 has been tested to effectively kill potentially harmful microorganisms without damaging the TEE probe. Since the TD 100 uses a fresh TD-5 bottle for each disinfection cycle; the need for continuous MRC testing is eliminated.

Testing and Approvals

The TD 100 with either TD-5 or TD-8 have been tested by TEE probe manufactures 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.

TD-5 FDA cleared K051305, and TD-8 FDA cleared K160921

TD-8 CE Marking Approval 630458
