CREEDMOOR, N.C.—CS Medical today announced the release of a probe storage cabinet. The CleanShield endoscope storage cabinet is a storage area for delicate endoscopes.
CleanShield is made of thermally fused polypropylene that can be disinfected easily and is non-hygroscopic, CS Medical wrote in a news release. The cabinet has hanging mounts that allow each endoscope to hang vertically, surrounded by clean, filtered air. The cabinet accommodates up to nine disinfected endoscope probes, the cabinet is complete with a locking epoxy-coated steel door.
CleanShield meets the recommendation of the Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates for storage of disinfected endoscopes. SGNA recommends that each probe be hung vertically, with distal tip hanging freely in a well-ventilated, dust-free area.
