Effective sterilization cannot occur without proper decontamination. Washer-disinfectors used in that process need to be evaluated daily for cleaning effectiveness. The T-EZ Pro from Key Surgical is a new product designed for daily testing of washer-disinfectors in sterile processing. The primary benefit of this product is the use of a true blood soil sample – providing the best representation of the material that washers must remove from surgical instruments during mechanical cleaning in preparation for sterilization. The stainless-steel indicator is set in a clear plastic process challenge device that can be easily opened after testing, no need to break it. A completely cleaned strip (no residue or tracings of the blood soil sample) indicates a passed test. An easy-to-read pass/fail chart is included in each box of T-EZ Pro.
