PCI Medical Introduces the GUS Storage System for Ultrasound Probes


PCI Medical, experts in high-level disinfection of ultrasound probes and scopes, introduces two new GUS© Storage Systems for ultrasound probes. One cabinet is for vaginal, rectal and general purpose probes, and one is for transesophageal (TEE) probes.

The GUS Storage System allows healthcare facilities to store their ultrasound probes vertically, in a clean, dry environment, as recommended by probe manufacturers. The storage cabinet features a constant flow of highly-filtered air (true HEPA filter) that creates positive pressure in the cabinet and helps prevent recontamination.

“The storage of ultrasound probes after high-level disinfection has become an issue with the Joint Commission,” says Joe Turgeon, president  of PCI Medical. “We are pleased to offer a solution to healthcare facilities and provide a method of storage that lowers the chance of probe damage and helps to keep patients safe.”

The GUS Storage System comes in two versions, one that can accommodate up to six vaginal, rectal or general purpose probes (CAB-VR) and a configuration that can hold up to three transesophageal (TEE) probes (CAB-TEE). 

The system is easy to clean, and features a large viewing window and a locking door for added security.
