The TD-100 is the only automated disinfector fortransesophageal (TEE) probes. Designed to eliminate the need for manualreprocessing of these delicate probes, the TD-100 is similar in function to thewidely used endoscopic reprocessors found in most CS and endoscopy departments,but automatically completes the disinfection and rinse cycles in less than 18minutes. The TD- 100 uses a fresh bottle of TD-5 (a glutaraldehyde-baseddisinfectant) for each cycle. The TD-5 bottle is pierced inside the TD-100 toeliminate splashes and spills and the advanced vapor management system adsorbschemical vapors, further protecting the user. A printed validation is generatedat the end of the completed cycle.
