PROTEIN RESIDUE TEST KPRO2-E250
System for detecting residual protein on surfaces.was designed to detect proteins on endoscopes and other reusable instruments with hard to reach internal channels or cannulated instruments.
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 flexible high absorption swab SW250: 2.5 m long, 2
mm diameter absortion area + a reactive colorimetric solution. The
SW250 swab can be introduced through the biopsy channel of the
endoscope thus allowing sampling contaminants left after the
- 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
- KPRO2-E250 can detect as little as 1 ug of protein.
