ASP Announces Availability of CLEANASCOPE System
Date:11/24/2008

Unique Storage and Transportation System Reduces Endoscope Cross-contamination and Protects Scopes from Damage

New Infection Prevention Solution for Busy GI Suites

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Sterilization Products (ASP), division of Ethicon Inc., is pleased to announce the availability of the CLEANASCOPE System, a new infection prevention solution designed to reduce the risk of cross-contamination of endoscopes and cross-infection of patients in healthcare facilities that provide GI procedures.

The CLEANASCOPE System is a unique storage and transportation system that offers easy visual identification of clean versus contaminated endoscopes. Its protective transportation box helps to avoid accidental damage to the equipment and allows for easy mobility around the GI suite.

As hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) increase, endoscope repair costs rise and infection prevention procedure guidelines become more stringent, providing hospital staff with a high level of standardization for the processing of endoscopes and other delicate equipment is more important than ever. To fulfill this growing need and demonstrate its commitment to following the Society of Gastroenterological Nursing Association (SGNA) and Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) Standards and Recommended Practices, ASP is now the exclusive U.S. distributor of the CLEANASCOPE System.

"One of the biggest challenges for the staff in a GI suite is the handling of the endoscope in preparation for processing," said Barbara Trattler, RN, MPA, CNOR, CNA, Director of Clinical Education at ASP. "The CLEANASCOPE system provides a protective transportation solution that can limit accidental damage to endoscopes. In addition, with the CLEANASCOPE System's color-coded liner system - green for clean and red for contaminated - anyone can now tell with a simple glance which scopes are ready for processing."

The CLEANASCOPE System is available in four sizes - a 2-tray, 5-tray, 6-tray and 10-tray version - and its sterile liners can be reordered as needed. The CLEANASCOPE System can be used in combination with manual and automated reprocessing systems.
