PROTEIN RESIDUE TEST KPRO2-E69
System for detecting residual protein on surfaces
The first step in properly cleaning surgical instruments is to rinse off all blood, bodily fluids and tissue immediately after use. If cleaning is not carried out adequately, it may render the disinfection stage ineffective, causing patients to be exposed to body fluids and tissue contaminants from prior patients, which can result in the transmission of pathogens and affect large numbers of people. Chemdye® KPRO2-E69 and KPRO2-E250 Hygiene Systems were designed to check cleanliness of surgical equipment by detecting protein residues after an improper cleaning. The systems have a high absorption swab, allowing the collection of samples from different surfaces with the same efficacy. The system are compatible with cleaning verification of endoscopes and other reusable instruments with
hard to reach internal channels or cannulated instruments. For this, use the special SW250 endoscope swabs, which may be introduced through the biopsy channel of the endoscope to sample contaminants left after the cleaning process.
A visual color change indicates the presence of detectable levels of protein. KPRO2-E69 and KPRO2-E250 have high sensitivity and can detect as little as 1 ?g of protein.
- The system has a high absorption 6.9 cm long swab, SW69, as well as a reactive colorimetric solution. The SW69 swab allows the collection of samples from different surfaces with the same efficacy following the cleaning process.
- Volume of solution: 0.440 ml.
- An instant and visual reading of a color change indicates the presence of detectable levels of protein. By comparing the color of the test against the table an estimation of the surface cleanliness can be made.
- KPRO2-E69 can detect as little as 1 ?g of protein
