Cenorin, a healthcare company providing solutions for medical device reprocessing and waste stream reduction, announces the availability of its new 50 Series advanced drying systems. These new models offer in-demand features and benefits that help healthcare reprocessing teams achieve drying compliance while also improving throughput and workflow.
Three widely recognized ANSI/AAMI guidance documents highlight important aspects of medical device drying. ST79 discusses the potential consequences of wet packs (they can supply a pathway for microbial invasion and can lead to corrosion of devices). ST58 explains how residual water can prevent sterilant from reaching a device’s surface, thereby preventing sterilization. ST91 stresses the importance of endoscopes being dry before sterilization, storage, and patient use, and recommends that endoscopes have a designated area for drying.
The new 50 Series user interface is designed to be easy to learn and operate. It provides more detailed at-a-glance cycle status information than Cenorin’s classic drying systems and offers user programming of cycle temperatures and a selection of drying performance settings. It also alerts users when there is a possible performance issue or when a new filter is needed.
Cenorin medical device dryers have a four-decade reputation for reliability and durability. The company continues to enhance that standing with the 150 and 350 dryers, which have an even more rugged construction and durable anticorrosion finish designed to provide long life and easy maintenance in processing environments. Adding chamber accessories such as racks, shelving and the LD100 Lumen Drying System helps optimize the drying of many devices, lumens, and other patient care items.
The new medical device dryers are designed to accommodate current and anticipated drying needs of hospitals, clinics, and specialty departments. When used and maintained as directed, they provide a long useful life and a return on investment.
