Preventative maintenance is essential to ensuring the TD 100® provides your healthcare facility with long and continuous service. The TD 100 provides high-level disinfection of a TEE ultrasound probe through an FDA 510k cleared method. By heating the single-use high-level disinfectant, the TEE probe can be disinfected in 5 minutes. After the disinfection, the TD 100 continues to care for the TEE probe by rinsing the residual high-level disinfectant from the probe shaft. During disinfection and rinse the probe is securely held inside the TD 100 disinfection reservoir to prevent stress and shock to the TEE probe.
