Potential new antibiotic shows promise

Scientists from the University of Plymouth and the University of Manchester have researched the performance of epidermicin, the first in a new class of antibiotics, against an established treatment called mupirocin to gauge its effectiveness in fighting antibiotic-resistant bacteria. A single dose of epidermicin as effective as mupirocin administered twice daily for three days to eradicate MRSA from the nostrils of cotton rats. With antibiotic resistance being identified as a threat to global human health, this is welcome news.

Surveys to check for compliance of FDA ban on powdered gloves

Effective immediately, surveys will check for compliance of FDA ban on powdered gloves

The Joint Commission recently announced it would check for compliance to the FDA ban on powdered gloves in surveys, beginning now. The FDA ban went into effect on January 18 and applies to all accreditation programs. The FDA banned powdered gloves because they “present an unreasonable and substantial risk of illness or injury and that the risk cannot be corrected or eliminated by labeling or a change in labeling.”

PrintBacteria

Help promote safe cleaning conditions for SPD personnel, as well as improve patient safety and destroy microbes early in the instrument-cleaning process. Every Triton machine is designed with a specialized UV water treatment system, which kills microorganisms through ultraviolet germicidal irradiation.

It’s a fact that UV light energy helps to reduce infection by killing bacteria. Ultra Clean Systems is the only company that brings you this added safety feature for both you and the patients you protect from infection.

Water that enters the basin is deactivated from many types of harmful microbes. When cleaning lumen instruments, recirculated water continuously works to kill bacteria, thus making your instruments safer much earlier in the cleaning process.

Triton 36 Automatic Single Basin

Triton36-transparent-12-6-14

Automatic Single Basin Ultrasonic Cleaning System

da Vinci Validated and approved to clean robotic instruments.Designed to keep up with the hectic schedule of today’s central sterile departments, UCS proudly offers the Triton 36, which is capable of cleaning even the longest robotic instruments. This workhorse ultrasonic cleaning system provides higher throughput with its ability to clean more instruments in less time, which helps your department run more efficiently. Titanium Rod Transducer (TRT) technology promotes better cavitation than standard ultrasonics.

The Triton 36 is the ultimate in surgical instrument cleaning with its UV water deactivator. The incoming and recirculated water is treated with ultraviolet energy to deactivate bacteria and viruses. A pneumatic air cylinder safely controls the raising and lowering of the work tray elevator. This eliminates the need for operators to reach into the tank of contaminated solution and reduces back strain.

Titanium Rod Transducer Technology

Titanium Rod Transducer Technology

 

Titanium Rod Transducer (TRT) Technology

Ultra Clean Systems continues to raise the standard in the world of ultrasonic instrument cleaning by offering Titanium Rod Transducer technology. TRT technology produces a high cavitation energy output, reducing cleaning times and enhancing efficiency. This industry-leading technology is ideal for cleaning complex instruments, including those used in laparoscopic, orthopedic, ophthalmic, and robotic surgeries.

Thanks to its surgical grade titanium transducer and direct-in-water energy injection, the TRT features:

• Reduced cleaning times compared to bonded transducers 

• More cleaning power, reduced wash-cycle time, and helps eliminate bottlenecks 

• 8- to 13-minute ultrasonic cleaning cycle 

• 15-minute da Vinci® cycle 

• Longer machine life 

• Less maintenance, reducing down time and associated costs 

• Thorough cleaning allows you to keep your sets together

The result? Cleaning cycle times are reduced by 5 minutes and the need for degassing is completely eliminated, yielding a total time reduction of ten minutes. 

Older and less efficient ultrasonic cleaning systems pass their energy from a series of surface-mounted transducers via a bonding agent, through the metal basin and into the water. This results in a power loss of around 20%. With the new TRT technology, this power loss is greatly reduced, thus the cleaning cycles are significantly shortened, allowing instruments to be readied for the next case.

Energy radiates in all directions,
eliminating cold spots

Cold spots are depicted in blue (between energy fields)

Additionally, this patented technology is less stressful for both your vital instruments and the cleaning machine itself. The increased and sometimes violent agitation in previous processes caused wear and tear. By using the TRT, you can extend the life expectancy of your vital equipment and instrumentation.
