The following Hands-On Lab will repeat two times at 9am and 10:15am
FLUORESCENCE BASED PROTEIN DETECTION TESTING
Dr. Perrett, Thomas Overbey, Rose Seavey – Ultra Clean Systems
The detection of residual proteins is considered to be a necessary step for the validation of decontamination procedures in hospital SPDs.
Protein determinations are conducted off-instrument by either wet swabbing part of the instrument or by soaking the instrument in a detergent solution. Previous studies have demonstrated that significant amounts of adsorbed BSA or fibrinogen, (a relatively hydrophobic protein with some similar characteristics to prion proteins) can remain on the instrument after swabbing with water or detergent solutions.
A suggested alternative approach is the in-situ detection of residual proteins on the actual instruments. Proteins adsorbed onto surfaces can be directly quantified by a number of possible techniques. Many such techniques are at present far too complex and expensive for routine use.
Another technique is through the use of fluorescence imaging since it can offer considerably more sensitivity.
This lab will provide a thorough step-by-step demonstration of fluorescence based protein test detection and follow-up discussion by the inventors of the only system of its kind.
Come see us there. Seating is very limited!
March 2015 – Ultra Clean System exhibited at the very popular AORN Show in Denver Colorado this year.
On display was the Triton36 Ultrasonic Cleaning System, which has been validated by Intuitive Surgical to process the entire line of robotic instruments including the newer longer Xi instruments.
Also unveiled was the new Triton72, a double basin model with independent operation providing twice the capacity & double the productivity!
Rose Seavey was at the booth showcasing the ProReveal, just days after a webinar on Residual Protein Detection on Surgical Instruments.
Many visitors to the booth were extremely intrigued at what the ProReveal can do! This amazing system can show residual protein on surgical instruments plus show the quantity, all on an intelligent touch-screen display. With the data tracking capabilities, the ProReveal can help to optimize an entire Sterile Processing Department.
