High-level disinfection refers to a reprocessing process that destroys all pathogenic microorganisms on medical devices and instruments, with the exception of small numbers of bacterial spores.1
According to the Spaulding Classification system, all semi-critical items, defined as those which are in contact with intact mucous membranes or non-intact skin, must undergo high-level disinfection when being reprocessed.1
ASP™ provides a compact automated high-level disinfection system, the ASP AEROFLEX™ Automated Endoscope Reprocessor*, which facilitates rapid endoscope reprocessing and accelerates workflow in the Central Sterilization Services Department (CSSD).2
ASP™ also offers a range of detergents, such as CIDEZYME™ and CIDEZYME™ XTRA* Enzymatic Cleaners, which can be used for manual cleaning of medical devices and laboratory equipment.3-5
CIDEX™ OPA Solution is a broad-spectrum, high-level disinfectant, that can be used to safely reprocess flexible endoscopes and other heat-sensitive medical devices.4
