Observe the Inside-Out with LumCheck

LumCheck is the first test designed as an independent check on the cleaning performance of rigid scope cleaners. Embedded on the stainless steel plate is a specially formulated blood soil which includes the toughest components of blood to clean. After washing, if the LumCheck is visually clean, the test indicates that the washing device is working properly. If residue remains on the plate, the LumCheck indicates a failure in the washing process, which requires further investigation. The LumCheck is made up of three key components: The Test Soil, the Stainless Steel Plate and the LumCheck Holder. The Soil is composed of blood components mixed and applied in a precise manufacturing process. As a result, it provides a consistent challenge to the cleaning effectiveness of the MIS cleaning device. The stainless steel plate is “scratched,” replicating the uneven interior of lumen instruments. The Holder enables the attachment of the Test to the cleaning equipment and also replicates the cleaning challenge of cannulated instruments. After running the LumCheck™ test through a cleaning cycle, remove the test from the Holder. Examine the stainless steel plate for the presence of soil. The LumCheck should be visually clean. LumCheck complies with ASTM Guide D7225.
