Cenorin, a healthcare company offering solutions for infection control management and waste stream reduction, recently released its new Cenorin LD 100 Lumen Drying System. This adjunct to medical device drying cabinets is designed to help reprocessing departments avoid retained moisture events and speed lumen drying and turnaround.
The number of minimally invasive surgeries using endoscopic and robotic devices continues to increase because they offer numerous benefits to patients. Although thorough drying of these devices’ internal lumen surfaces is critical to successful infection prevention protocols, it is challenging to achieve.
Once installed inside medical device drying cabinets, the LD 100 lumen dryer helps assure a compliant, effective and efficient drying process for endoscopes and robotic arm lumens, without impeding the simultaneous drying of other devices in the cabinet. The LD 100 system can dry two endoscopes or 10 robotic lumens at a time, in the upright positions required by manufacturers’ instructions for use. HEPA filtered air removes 99.97% of particulates larger than 0.3 microns, and the air is delivered at a low pressure to protect the devices.
The LD 100 user interface is easy to learn and use. It enables at-a-glance process monitoring and includes a timer to allow user-defined drying times. Two brackets each hold up to five robotic devices and are stacked vertically to enable compliant simultaneous drying of all 10 lumens.
