EW 1 S MAXI
Endoscope Reprocessor with Automatic OCS Coupling
EW 1 S MAXI is an automatic endoscope reprocessor for low-temperature washing and high-level disinfection/liquid sterilization of one flexible endoscope, two video broncho/cystoscopes, or up to three fiber broncho/cystoscopes. It also allows the treatment of rigid endoscopes. EW 1 S MAXI is compatible with OCS One-Time Connection System technology, a single connection system shared among pre-washing, washing/disinfection, and drying/storage devices. In this model, the OCS connector is automatically coupled through a pneumatic piston located on the top of the washing chamber.
Available as single door or double door pass-through versions, EW 1 S MAXI has been developed to fully comply with EN ISO 15883-4 and ISO 14937 in combination with its validated set of chemistry for high-level disinfection or liquid sterilization processes at low temperature. The devices can also perform thermal self-disinfection. An RFID system for endoscopes and operators recognition enables the cycle activation without touching the external surfaces of the machine. Service accessibility from the front, meaning no need to have extra space to the sides in pass-through installations and easier maintenance.
Automatic OCS Coupling through Pneumatic Piston
Endoscope connection through OCS – One Connection System. The OCS connector will automatically be coupled through a pneumatic piston located on the top of the washing chamber, resulting in a faster process, a reduction of endoscope manipulation, and a facilitation of nurses daily job.
Complete Endoscope Reprocessing Traceability
ARES devices are compatible with SteelcoData Ares software that ensures 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 higher productivity.
Steelco offers a comprehensive range of solutions to meet the challenges of your reprocessing facilities. Whatever the sizes and layout of your endoscopic department, we help you plan, manage and optimize the workflow to best ensure efficiency, productivity, and cost-effective operation. With this aim, dedicated mesh trays are compatible with ED 200 S series of drying cabinets. We do not simply offer endoscopic reprocessing devices but a complete and integrated reprocessing system with carefully designed accessories.
Optimal Performance with Steelco Chemicals
The independently validated results achieved by the ARES flexible endoscope reprocessor range are strictly linked to the use of Steelco chemistries, which provide cost-effective rapid cycles compliant to ISO 15883-4 and ISO 14937 standards. Using non-validated chemistries contravenes standards, can compromise the cycle efficacy, and may cause damages to both the equipment and the endoscopes.
Treatment of one standard flexible endoscope, up to two video bronchoscopes/cystoscopes and up to three fiber bronchoscopes/cystoscopes.
Smaller Footprint, Bigger Chamber
Low consumption with a small footprint, yet with a bigger chamber and washing cart dimensions in comparison with EW 1 S.
Chemicals RFID Safety
Identification of the process chemicals and registration of the lot number and expiration date. A critical safety application to make sure that only the validated chemicals will be used in order to comply with ISO 15833-4 requirements.
Doors are automatically opened through a foot pedal or RFID sensor for hands-free endoscope loading and unloading operations.
Service accessibility from the front allows more accessible maintenance activities and a reduced footprint for better exploitation of the space
Faster endoscope and operator recognition through barcode/RFID reader options. Cycle details can be printed by the built-in thermal printer or alternatively registered in the optional SteelcoData traceability software.
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.
Double ISO 15883-4 & ISO 14937 compliance.
– ISO 15883-4 validated High-Level Disinfection cycles allow a fast endoscopes turnover even in busy departments
– ISO 14937 validated Liquid Sterilization cycles for a “ready to go” cycle performed directly in the Point of Use in Pneumology, Urology, and Gastroenterology Departments where higher standards are required.
