FDA Clears New Automated TEE Probe Disinfector

CS Medical has announced the successful clearance of a new Class II medical device by the U.S. FDA and Health Canada, TD 200 Automated TEE Probe Disinfector with TD 12 AquaCide high-level disinfectant.

“Building off the TD 100 platform, TD 200 with TD 12 AquaCide provides customers with a faster high-level disinfection time and an overall quicker total cycle time of ten minutes,” according to a release from CS Medical.

“TD 200 is the first medical device cleared in North America which provides high-level disinfection in just three minutes. The single-use biocide, TD 12 AquaCide comes in granulated form. The TD 12 AquaCide bottle is pierced inside the TD 200, is mixed with water, and heated to create a liquid high-level disinfectant. Simple step-by-step instructions are displayed on the LCD screen for the end-user,” the release adds.

“Today’s news shows CS Medical’s continued commitment to providing products and services that effectively reprocess TEE ultrasound probes. TD 12 AquaCide provides new and exciting opportunities for CS Medical. With a quicker high-level disinfection claim than TD 5 or TD 8, as well as not requiring deactivation prior to disposal, TD 12 AquaCide will reduce reprocessing time and reduce potential ecosystem damage. TD 200 with TD 12 AquaCide is the combination of years of research, development, and commitment by our entire staff,” said Mark Leath, CS Medical president. “TD 200 with TD 12 AquaCide is another example of our pledge to work with health care professionals and other professional organizations to reduce HAIs and increase awareness for a better and safer health care system. In addition to our employees, I am thankful and appreciative of the cooperation and assistance given to us by the TEE ultrasound probe manufacturers, without whom TD 200 with TD 12 AquaCide would not be the product it is today.”
