Test Beyond What Can Be Seen with HemoCheck™
Stains come in all sizes, shapes and intensity. Sometimes a stain can appear quite benign, or not be easily detected by the human eye. Go beyond what you can see and test the cleanliness of instruments with the HemoCheck™ blood detection kit. Finding a stain on an instrument that has gone through reprocessing is never good. If the stain is blood, the implications are even more serious. Take the guess work out of evaluating the cleanliness of instruments with the HemoCheck™ blood residue test kit. The HemoCheck™ is an all-in-one test, provides a result in 30 seconds, is simple to interpret and indicates blood residue down to 0.1μg. Significant traces of blood indicate an inadequately reprocessed instrument and is a rich source for cross contamination. To use the HemoCheck™, simply swipe the surface of the instrument, drop the swab in the activated indicator, shake vigorously, wait for 30 seconds and check for color change. If the swab remains yellow, the instrument is free of blood. If any area of the swab turns green or blue, the surface harbors blood residue and should be reprocessed. If many instruments are found to be soiled, a thorough evaluation of the decontamination processes should be conducted. HemoCheck™ complies with ASTM Guide D7225.
