Point of care (POC) ultrasound is becoming a cornerstone in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.
trophon offers convenient POC high level disinfection…
trophon is a state of the art point of care (POC) high level disinfection (HLD) device for ultrasound probes.
Prior to the introduction of trophon technology, ultrasound probes have routinely been high level disinfected in a centralized location outside of the patient examination room. This traditional workflow has been common due to the safety limitations of disinfection with bulk liquid disinfectants.
Soaking ultrasound probes outside of the patient care area can be logistically difficult, time consuming and involves multiple steps and quality control measures.
trophon is an easier way…
- trophon makes POC disinfection possible
- Installation of trophon is flexible, with no need for plumbing or special ventilation
- trophon offers a closed system, so there is no staff exposure to hazardous chemicals
- With POC ultrasound probe reprocessing, there is no need to transport probes to centralized areas – reducing the risk of recontamination and making workflow simpler
