Medical Device Cleaning and Disinfection
Medical device cleaning validation and instrument disinfection are critical issues for hospitals and surgery centers around the world. Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI’s) due to improperly cleaned instruments is a growing concern as medical instruments become more complex. Serim played an important role in developing products for measuring concentration of high level disinfectants to ensure proper disinfection of endoscopes and similar devices. Our CIDEX® OPA test strips are widely used around the world today.
Recently Serim developed the only cleaning verification test that specifically monitors the activity of enzymatic detergents used to reprocess medical instruments. This test is used for both washer disinfector validation and ultrasonic cleaner testing. The enzymatic detergent is the most important factor in the cleaning of medical instruments according to AAMI ST:79.
Sanitizer and Disinfectant testing
Serim was instrumental in developing test strips for measuring disinfectants and water quality for dialysis centers. Our water test strips, formaldehyde testing strips, peroxide test strips, and chlorine test strips are used in dialysis centers worldwide in a variety of applications.
Food Safety and Sanitation programs are a critical aspect in all areas of today’s food production. All areas from food growing to serving require the proper use of sanitizing solutions to reduce food borne diseases and illnesses. Our sanitizer test strips measure a variety of solutions and concentrations. Our Chlorine test strips and QAC test strips are widely used within this industry and we offer a number of other unique testing products for this market.
Helicobactor pylori bacteria is the primary cause of peptic ulcers. Our H. pylori rapid test tests up to 3 biopsies per test. Results are available within one hour so patients can be started on appropriate therapy the same day. Many competitive tests require waiting 24hrs before finalizing results.
