There are a number of factors that can compromise efficacy of medical instruments and labware cleaning in ultrasonic baths. Visual examination of instruments after processing may not reveal inefficient cleaning. The best way to verify performance of ultrasonic cleaners is to use the OK-Sonic™ Ultrasonic Test Soil Indicator Strips that monitor integrated result of the cleaning process parameters, including strength of cavitation, exposure time and temperature.
OK-Sonic™ monitors the strength of cavitation within an ultrasonic cleaner. It also measures temperature, detergent presence & concentration and length of cycle using dual soil spots to mimic blood and tissue removal from both difficult to clean surfaces and instrument parts.
After completion of successful cycles, cleanliness of instruments can be verified with our Protein Detection Test Kit.
