Often invisible to the naked eye, biological soil residues left behind by insuffcient cleaning can shield bacterial spores from sterilization processes, and become a breeding ground for pathogens.
Cleaning throroughly to completely remove these residues is required before high-level disinfection or sterilization can begin. Verifying that adequate cleanding has taken place can be a daunting task, expecially with complex instruments, such as flexible endoscopes.
As with sterilization, it's important to monnitor the performance of your washer-disinfector during each wash cycle. The WD-Chex Washer-Disinfector Monitor provides a challenge to your washer-disinfector without introducing any biological derivatives into your machine. The synthetic soil completely disappears from the strip after a successful cycle.
