ChannelCheck

ChannelCheck is the first product capable of testing virtually any lumened instrument for residual organic soils, including flexible endoscopes, no matter the channel size. ChannelCheck tests for three common organic soils at once: blood, protein and carbohydrates. Simply flush an individual channel with prepackaged sterile water and recover that water. Then dip the test strip in the recovered water for 5 seconds. Remove the strip, wait 90 seconds and then compare the color of the pads to the results chart. Should any of the pads indicate there is residual soil, reclean the device and then retest.

Healthmark’s new and improved ChannelCheck features improved sensitivity of the carbohydrate and protein pads. Also, the color and color change for the protein pad have changed to a white (negative) and to a blue/purple (positive), which enhances the visual interpretation of results. Further, the test method has been simplified to improve functionality and sensitivity. Read More...

ProChek-W<span class="tm">™</span> Semi-Quantitative Protein Test

ProChek-W Semi-Quantitative Protein Test

Designed to take the guesswork out of evaluating the cleanliness of items, the Semi-Quantitative Protein Test checks for residual protein on items after post-procedure cleaning prior to further processing. Protein is a significant component of bioburden. Improper cleaning can lead to the build-up of bioburden - representing not only a source of cross-contamination but shortening the useful life of the item itself. The ProChek-Semi-Quantitative Protein Test is an easy to use and interpret method, which provides rapid results and comes with the following: 15 Protein Reagent Vials, 15 Blue Vial Screw Caps, 15 Pipettes, 15 Ziploc Bags, and an Interpretation Color Chart. The Semi-Quantitative Protein Test is available for individual purchase.

EndoCheck<span class="tm">™</span> Detection Protein with ProChek-II<span class="tm">™</span> Protein Detection Test Kit

EndoCheck Detection Protein with ProChek-II Protein Detection Test Kit

Manufactured for healthcare workers to verify the cleanliness of duodenoscopes, the EndoCheck Detection Protein with ProChek-II Protein Detection Test Kit is designed to test for residual protein inside the biopsy channel of duodenoscopes, as well as the elevator mechanism and recess. The test kit can be purchased with either a 3.5mm or 4.2mm diameter swab. The EndoCheck portion of the test kit is simple and easy to use. Simply, insert the swab into the channel to be tested, push it all the way through and cut the swab off into the vial and shake. Check the swab and liquid for a color change to blue-green. To use the ProChek-II portion, swab the elevator mechanism and recess, break the swab end off at the breakpoint, drop the swab into the vial and shake. With both tests, if the liquid or any part of swab turns blue-green, residual protein was detected and the item should be re-cleaned. Read More...
