EPW 100 S
Semi-Automatic Device supporting Endoscopes Manual Cleaning
EPW 100 S is an automated system assisting manual cleaning. Thanks to the automatization of the leak test and the washing and the rinsing of the endoscope channels, it supports operators eliminating the risk of injury and errors. Equipped with a user-friendly HMI, the device permits hands-free instrument and operator identification through a bar code reader or RFID system.
EPW 100 S is compatible with OCS One-Time Connection System, a single connection system shared by pre-washing, washing/disinfection, and drying/storage devices -drastically reducing the risk of errors and endoscope manipulation throughout the process.
This model provides a record of the cycle that can be printed, transferred to a USB stick, or integrated into the SteelcoData traceability system. The device allows total immersion of endoscopes according to most European country guidelines.
RFID Hands-Free Process
Steelco ARES platform allows a “hands-free” process, thanks to the RFID technology installed in pre-wash units, AER, and drying cabinets. Traceability identification of operators and scopes is made safe with the touchless use of bracelets or badges. No need to touch the device control panel anymore, thus reducing potential cross-contamination risks and enhancing nurses’ and patients’ safety.
Sinks and Furnitures for Manual Cleaning
Different sized sinks and cabinets specifically designed for manual cleaning. The sinks are available with fixed or adjustable height, with stainless steel or Corian tops. Furthermore, they can also be equipped with an automatic system for filling and draining the sink itself. Thus, the only manual activities left to operators are the physical brushing of the endoscope channels (as required by international guidelines) and their connection to the dedicated adapters. Steelco automatic endoscopy sinks grant the correct temperature, concentration, and contact time of the detergent, thus enhancing safety for both the operators and the patients.
Complete Endoscope Reprocessing Traceability
ARES devices are compatible with SteelcoData Ares software that ensures the complete traceability of the endoscope reprocessing process. SteelcoData Ares software is designed to meet the endoscopic room’s operational requirements by promptly tracking and providing information to maintain safety, efficiency, and high production.
Rapid, easy, and traceable semi-automation of manual cleaning—continuous leak test, channels flushing, rinsing, and purging.
Fast, hands-free hygienical selection of endoscopes and operators through the “built-in” barcode reader or RFID System.
Automatic dosing of single-shot detergent eliminating any risk of waste.
Easy Residue Testing
In a single gesture, the device conveys the rinsing water into a container for organic residue testing.
Intuitive Control Panel
Easy to use “soft touch” control panel for a perfect cleaning and disinfection of the display to assure the operator a better protection when selecting functions.
Washing phases data can be printed, export via USB or integrated into the SteelcoData traceability system.
OCS - One-Time Connection System
Yet another step forward to ensure endoscopes reprocessing to be fast, error-proof, and with the minimum risk of cross-contamination: the OCS One-Time Connection System, a One-Time connection system shared between prewashing, washing/disinfection, and drying/storage devices. A fast, ergonomic, and user-friendly technology that minimizes operators handling of the endoscopes in all the phases of the process, significantly decreasing the risk of cross-contamination and the possibility of human errors.
The safest patient care and infection prevention for endoscopy and CSSDs departments, regardless of their size and application focus. With one of the broadest portfolios for endoscope reprocessing, Steelco covers the entire workflow of endoscope reprocessing from pre-cleaning to storage.
