Envision the Cleaning Performance of your Flexible Scope Cleaner with FlexiCheck™
This three part kit simulates a flexible endoscope channel and is designed to challenge the cleaning efficiency of endoscope washers with channel irrigation apparatus. The kit includes a clear flexible tube, attached to a stainless steel lumen device. The test coupon is placed in the lumen and the entire device is hooked up to the irrigation port of the endoscope washer. The test coupon includes two soils, components of blood soil and polysaccharide soil. These soils are the types which are often found within the channels of flexible endoscopes and represent a significant cleaning challenge. When processed through a cleaning cycle, the endoscope washer should completely remove both soils from the test coupon. Failure to do so indicates less than optimal cleaning parameters, which can include poor chemical efficiency, poor mechanical efficiency, water quality or water temperature issues. The included interpretation guide aides the user in diagnosing the source of problems and suggests possible solutions.
