Acertara Acoustic Laboratories recently announced that its TEE probe repair processes have been validated by automated TEE reprocessor, CS Medical’s laboratory and engineering team. This testing process included more than 1,000 cleaning and high-level disinfection cycles, electrical leakage testing and visual inspections.
“CS Medical’s TEEClean Automated Cleaner Disinfector is the gold standard in the automated reprocessing device industry with the TEEClean being the only automated cleaner and disinfector for TEE probes in the United States,” according to a press release.
Mark Leath, president of CS Medical, said, “Acertara, to date, is the only probe repair company in the industry that has been tested using our automated cleaner disinfector. The test method is real-time and is actual cycle for cycle testing to clean and disinfect a TEE ultrasound probe. Our scientists and engineers have concluded that the repair work done by Acertara will effectively pass contiuned reprocessing by health care professionals. A probe repaired by Acertara and reprocessed with one of CS Medical’s automated cleaner disinfectors should provide confidence for the organization and safety for the patient.”
