NOW! Test

Flexible endoscopes are a challenge to clean and disinfect/sterilize. Modern machines such as AER’s are effective tools for rendering scopes safe for use on the next patient, but how do you determine if the process was effective? By using the new NOW! Test. This simple and rapid test (<12 hours) checks for Gram negative bacteria, helping to ensure that it is safe to use on the next patient. Utilizing a unique enzyme detection method, the easy to read fluorometer checks for the Gram negative bacterial growth (<10 cfu) by reading telltale fluorescence in the recaptured water. If the fluorometer reading is positive for Gram negative bacteria, reprocess the endoscope following manufacturer guidelines prior to use.
