The presence of biofilms in the lumens of medical devices and in water pipelines can put patient lives at risk. Chlorine dioxide has been shown to be effective against biofilm and could potentially be used to manage and prevent biofilm formation in device lumens and pipelines.
Tristel’s proprietary ClO2 formulation has become the go-to high-level disinfectant for non-lumened heat sensitive medical devices. Chlorine dioxide is a biocide with the broadest efficacy against microbial organisms.
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a major cause of oropharyngeal cancers. Medical devices used in ENT, such as nasendoscopes, can be carriers of HPV if not disinfected properly. Tristel Trio Wipes System is effective against HPV preventing its spread and helping to protect patients.
Medical devices such as endocavity ultrasound probes and endoscopes are used to examine areas of the body in which HPV may be present and can pose a risk of HPV contamination.
This paper presents a review of evidence to determine if high-level disinfection with a chlorine dioxide wipe is a suitable method for non-lumened endoscopes.
