CONROE, Texas―Byrne Medical, a company that specializes in disposable infection-prevention products, this week announced the official launch of the Mini PULL THRU small-channel cleaning device for GI endoscopy and pulmonary labs.
The Mini PULL THRU's three-wiper design provides a complete circumferential seal in the lumen tube, thereby removing residue from the internal channels in one simple operation, according to Byrne. The effect of this multiple wiper seal is to completely wipe the lumen clean, providing a smooth, non-abrasive, non-damaging and time-saving method to pre-clean bronchoscopes, Byrne added.
The PULL THRU product line consists of the PULL THRU™ and the PULL THRU™ Combo for endoscope channel sizes 2.8mm―5.0mm ID and the Mini PULL THRU™ for bronchoscope and GI endoscopes with channel sizes 1.4―2.6mm ID.
"This new cleaning device is like nothing else on the market to clean small-channel scopes," said Erica D. Imhoff, product manager. "Once you see the demonstration, you will be convinced that the Mini PULL THRU's single pass method is the most effective way to pre-clean small scope channels."
Byrne Medical, a Minntech Corporation Business Group, delivers infection-prevention solutions to reduce potential risks to caregivers and patients in GI endoscopy. Don Byrne, current Byrne Medical general manager, founded the company in 1997 in Conroe, Texas, with a single disposable product.
