Rapid Fluorescence Readout System
Increased demands on faster instruments turnaround can now be satisfied with Terragene®’s Rapid Fluorescence Readout Systems. New Super Rapid, Rapid Self-contained Biological Indicators and Hygiene Monitoring Pen System allow to control and quantify the decontamination process.
This system grants accurate, quick, reliable and easy detection of positive and negative indicators, providing final results in short time. All this information can be registered and stored in the Bionova ® Traceability Software.
- Easy to use. Results are obtained in record time allowing faster release of sterilized loads.
- Fluorescence technology provides the needed information when there is still time to act.
- Fluorescence readout of all Rapid, Super Rapid SCBIs and Hygiene Monitoring Systems is carried out in just 1 incubator, the Bionova® IC10/20FRLCD.
- Final readout and related information will automatically flow into your system through the Bionova ® Traceability Software

HTM01-01:2016 Are You Ready?
The HTM 01-01 (update July 2016) offers guidance on the prevention and control of infections. All healthcare providers are required to demonstrate the precence of decontamination policies, to establish that essential quality requirements and plans are in place for progression to best practice.
The purpose of the HTM01-01 is to help health organisations to develop policies regarding the management, use, and decontamination of reusable medical devices at controlled costs using risk control. Overall, the HTM is designed to reflect the need to continuously improve:
• patient safety and
• clinical effectiveness.
Essential Quality Requirements and Best Practice
With the implementation of the HTM01-01, all acute providers will have to demonstrate that they operate safely with respect to its decontamination services, defining how they achieve risk control and what plan is in place to work towards Best Practice. Therefore, Best Practice will be achieved by: covering procedures that aim to further minimise risks to patients; delivering better patient outcomes; promoting and encouraging innovation and choice, and achieving cost efficiencies. All new procedures that will contribute to improved clinical outcomes for the instrument management should therefore be taken into consideration.
By 1 July 2018, all healthcare providers engaged in the management of the decontamination process are expected to have updated their local policies and implemented improvement plans. The solution to the HTM01-01:2016 is now possible with The Rapid Fluorescence Readout System that provides, for the first time on the UK market, fully compliant quantitative and traceable results for the decontamination process.
