Byrne Medical, a provider of infection prevention solutions, has introduced Verifind protein detection kit.
The protein detection kit can identify protein residues by swabbing any surface within 1 microgram sensitivity.
Verifind aids infection control staff and clinicians to quickly view any remnant residual blood, saliva, mucous, stool or any other form of protein.
Verifind can also detect protein residues left over on telephones, bed rails, keyboards, light switches, endoscope carts, reprocessor lids, and other general surfaces within any GI Endoscopy or OR suite.
Byrne Medical product manager Erica Dodson Imhoff said infection prevention and patient safety within GI Endoscopy can take a dramatic step forward by introducing routine monitoring into current quality control protocols.
