Join our MD David Jones at Arab Health 2023, where he will be discussing Advanced ultrasonics and its effectiveness for the removal of proteins from surgical equipment.
The use of fluid based ultrasonics for the removal of proteins from surgical equipment has been around for many years and it is fair to say that the results have been mixed. This is primarily due to the uneven distribution of sound with the equipment used. Alphasonics embarked on a project in 2013 to develop a technology that would consistently remove proteins to a very low level (under 1µg). The project is now complete and this presentation sets out to explain the technology with facts and data that will show the amazing efficacy that Medstar technology delivers, that without doubt has the potential to save many lives and suffering worldwide.
One of the many unique features of this technology is that it uses cold water. No heat is required to achieve residual protein levels consistently to under 1µ. The primary benefit of this is the great cost saving on energy. In addition, once the proteins are removed, all the bacteria is exposed and is much more readily removed by the enzomatic chemistry, again in cold water (log reduction of 5.5to 6.6). We call this ‘side effect’ disinfection, as it is achieved as a side effect of the primary function of the device. Most models also include a cycle specifically designed to clean robotic instruments. Our extensive research has shown that great results are obtained via our own cleaning protocol, which does not require any manual intervention.
