SD 64
Ultrasound Probe
Automatic Washer-disinfector for Ultrasound probes
Clean and Disinfect your Endo rectal and Endo vaginal probes in complete safety
• Patient security: 
The washer automatically regulates the duration and temperature of the wash as well as the strength of the disinfectant. 
The probe is cleaned and disinfected and the reprocessing is documented with a traceability ticket. 

• Probe security: 
The length of time to which the probe is exposed to detergents and disinfectants is controlled. A continuous electric isolation test is performed during the process to control probe leakage.  
Your echographic probe is preserved. 

• Technician security: 
Technicians have no need to handle toxic products or irritants and therefore work under improved conditions 

HYGIETRONIC has designed and produces an automatic washer-disinfector for endo rectal and endo vaginal probes.

SD 64 is a brand new washer dedicated to endo cavity probes. Until now, probes have generally been washed and disinfected manually and with no real traceability. HYGIETRONIC’s washer will therefore revolutionise the reprocessing of this endo cavity echographic probe.
The product is founded on 3 pillars:
Patient security 
The process is extremely thorough, composed of a detergent phase and a disinfectant phase. 
The efficiency of the disinfectant phase is achieved through the strength, contact time and temperature of the disinfectant. 

 The automatic washer cleans twice with a detergent then disinfects using peracetic acid (Glutaraldehyde on demand). 

 A robot controls the different phases and ensures an optimum washing and disinfecting process. 

 The SD 64 sets the time, concentration and temperature for cleaning and disinfection. The probe is cleaned and disinfected, with the system’s on-board printer providing a traceability ticket after each cycle. 

Installation requires only a power source 230V , 16A, 2P+G, electrical consumption 110W, cold and hot water and a connection to a drain. 

HYGIETRONIC preferred the solution of the supply of cold water and hot water already produced by the Hospital power plant, rather than installing a water heater inside the SD64 which would greatly increase electrical consumption, Impose a higher current power line, significantly increase the risk of contamination, and delay the use of the SD64. Reducing electricity consumption has an ecological impact.

A filtration kit is available to monitor water quality upstream of the washer. HYGIETRONIC preferred the solution of the 1µm and 0.2µm external filters to the SD64 in order to reduce the time of intervention on the device during the maintenance of the filters. Moreover the filters are in the format 10 inches very common in the local market.

Pre washing and disinfecting phases guarantee the recycling of the probe . The disinfection level is Log 8
The disinfection phase uses peracetic acid to reach a high level of disinfection. 

The cycle is completed in 38 minutes, the probe can be reused immediately. 
In some countries aldehydes are prohibited because of mutagen toxicity and biofilm generation however SD 64 has also been validated with Glutaraldehyde in case of TEE incompatibility or specific recommendations 
SD 64 is CE MDD Class IIB Marked and has been validated following the ISO 15883-4 Standard 

Probe security 
The length of time to which the probe is exposed to detergent and disinfectant products is rigidly controlled. 

Once the cycle has been completed the probe can remain in the cylinder with no risk. 

A continuous electric isolation test is performed during the process to control probe leakage.  

 The handling control and the connector cannot be accidentally immersed into the bath. 
The probe is protected. 

Technician security 
Cans of disinfectant and detergent are placed at the low rear section behind a closed door so it is no longer necessary for personnel to handle chemicals.

After each phase waste liquids are sent directly to the drain. (Single Wash). Both the detergent and the peracetic acid are biodegradable and do not produce toxic residues.

The washer does not create toxic fumes. 
Working conditions for technicians are improved, with a reduced risk of exposure to or contact with the chemicals. 

The SD 64 exists in Multi-Wash version. The desinfecting agent, in that case, is used many time and the unload of the desinfection cylinder will be directed to the desinfectant can. 
The SD 64 can also be proposed to be used with a glutaraldehyde based desinfectant.
