High level disinfection

The latest ultrasound probe high level disinfection innovation featuring an enhanced design, simple and fast workflows plus digital recording keeping has been launched by infection prevention specialist Nanosonics.

New trophon2 follows in the steps of the trophon EPR technology which reengineered ultrasound reprocessing. Bryn Tudor Owen, Nanosonics country manager for UK and Ireland, said: “With trophon2, Nanosonics has gone further in providing the world’s most advanced ultrasound high level disinfection solution offering smarter protection, flexibility, functionality, traceability and integration.” 

New features include a redesigned chamber for existing and future probe designs, functionality that further optimises point of care usage and improved clinical workflows, a large high definition colour touch screen with animations; whisper quiet operation; and a range of programmable options.

Central to trophon2 is a new software platform which has features such as AcuTrace, for digital traceability and documentation of disinfection cycles through the latest state-of-the-art RFID technology which is embedded in ultrasound probe tags, operator cards, disinfectant bottles and chemical indicators. trophon2 can also store over 100,000 disinfection records providing accurate and complete records for improved compliance with required standards. 

An optional AcuTrace PLUS digital connectivity enables trophon2 to be integrated with hospital IT systems for a streamlined, digital and completely integrated reprocessing solution.  For users, it means that, at the touch of a button, they can verify that any probe, at any moment in time, has been successfully disinfected.
