AORN, IAHCSMM & AAMI Show Info
Plus a Webinar for Everyone

This edition of New-Splash from Ultra Clean Systems is a great roundup of three of the most important shows in healthcare involving perioperative nursing (AORN), sterile processing and central supply (IAHCSMM) and healthcare technology professionals (AAMI).

But what’s just around the corner is a very informative ProReveal Florescence Protein Detection Test Webinar hosted by Ultra Clean Systems on Tuesday, March 3.

residual protein on surgical instruments and how to detect it with no guesswork or swabbing

Ultra Clean Systems – Booth 3916

AORN is just around the corner with hundreds of exhibitors on tap for you to learn and explore at the Colorado Convention Center, March 7-11.

This conference is the place to learn about best practices; from educational sessions, fellow attendees, worldwide experts, and industry contacts in one location.

Ultra Clean Systems – Booth 3916, will be showing the remarkable ProReveal Fluorescence Protein Detection System and demonstrate why your surgical instruments may not be as clean as you think. Come see what you’ve been missing.

Rose Seavey will be in our booth from time-to-time so plan on coming by Booth 3916 and see the best in ultrasonic surgical instrument cleaning systems too.

The line-up up includes a wide range of Ultra Sonic Washer Systems including the Triton-36, which has been validated by Intuitive Surgical to clean da Vinci®
Robotic instruments
including the new, longer Xi instruments.


IAHCSMM 50th Annual Conference & Expo

Ultra Clean Systems – Booth 802

In May, the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Material Management (IAHCSMM) will celebrate its 50th Year of Service with an exciting Expo in sunny Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

The IAHCSMM Expo will boast its biggest turnout this year with expanded educational opportunities and exhibitors. Included in this offer is an easy escape on your downtime to head to the beach.

Ultra Clean Systems will be performing two Lab Sessions at the Pre-Conference Session on May 2.

Seating is very limited so plan to attend early.

It will be a very informative session, (repeated a second time due to popularity), on the topic of dirty instruments and detecting residual protein qualitatively and quantitatively.

FLUORESCENCE BASED PROTEIN DETECTION TESTING

FLUORESCENCE BASED PROTEIN DETECTION TESTING

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.

Ultra Clean Systems – Booth 802

Designed to keep up with the hectic schedule of today’s Central Sterile Departments, Ultra Clean Systems proudly offers the Triton Series.

For the Expo, Ultra Clean Systems at Booth 802, will have the full line of Ultra Sonic Cleaning Systems on display featuring the Triton36 cleaning system fully validated by Intuitive Surgical to process da Vinci® robotic instruments including the newer Xi generation robotics.

A special feature is our in-booth education.

We will be offering a half-hour CE credit course on:
