Date:12/16/2008

EVOTECH(TM) System Offers Healthcare Workers Consistent Cleaning

and Complete Confidence

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Sterilization Products (ASP) is pleased to announce the availability of the EVOTECH(TM) Endoscope Cleaner and Reprocessor, the first commercially available system to eliminate labor-intensive manual cleaning of endoscopes. The results of the EVOTECH(TM) System establish a consistently high standard of automated endoscope cleaning and high-level disinfection that is comparable to professional society guidelines for manual cleaning.

By removing the need to manually clean, the EVOTECH(TM) System eliminates the risk of human variation in endoscope cleaning. In addition, the EVOTECH(TM) System's 33-minute or less reprocessing cycle time provides fast turn-around of instrumentation and enables healthcare workers to spend more time completing patient-related activities.

"With the EVOTECH(TM) System's exceptional automation and technology, you can be confident that endoscopes are reprocessed safely and consistently," said Karen Borg, Worldwide Vice President of Marketing at ASP. "The EVOTECH(TM) System is a trailblazer and one more example of how ASP is continually delivering innovative infection prevention solutions that meet our customers' needs."

The EVOTECH(TM) System features:

  • Integrated Minimum Effective Concentration (MEC) monitoring that eliminates the need to handle high-level disinfectant, limiting the chance of staff exposure.
  • Automated leak detection at the beginning and end of the cycle, which helps ensure endoscope integrity.
  • Built-in alcohol flush that complies with SGNA recommendations to promote drying of endoscopes.
  • Single-use high-level disinfection using glutaraldehyde-free CIDEX(R) OPA Concentrate Solution.
  • Dual, independent basins that offer cleaning and reprocessing in 33 minutes or less.
  • Convenient hands-free operation.
  • Audible alarm can be turned on to alert of cycle completion.

The EVOTECH(TM) System is indicated for use with high-level disinfectant CIDEX(R) OPA Concentrate Solution and an enzymatic detergent (CIDEZYME(R) GI) to achieve cleaning and high-level disinfection of heat sensitive (>60 degrees Celsius) semi-critical endoscopes. Manual cleaning of medical devices (endoscopes) is not required prior to placement in the EVOTECH(TM) System when selecting those cycles that contain a wash stage. Manual cleaning of medical devices (endoscopes) is required when selecting the Disinfect only or Disinfect/Alcohol Flush Cycle.
