Neutralizing Stations, Disinfectant, Glutaraldehyde/Aldehyde-Based

Definition : Neutralizing stations designed to neutralize glutaraldehyde and some other aldehyde-based high-level disinfectants such as ortho-phthalaldehyde (OPA) before disposal into the drain. These stations typically consist of a neutralization tank, a sensor to detect when the tank is full, a pump, and input/output tubing for connection to the disinfectant solution source (e.g., a disinfector) and to the drain, respectively. The station tank receives the disinfecting solution after use (i.e., the spent solution); then the solution is mixed with an appropriate neutralizing agent such as glycine that converts it into a non-toxic product. When the tank is completely full, an integral pump automatically delivers the neutralized solution down the drain to the sewerage system. Glutaraldehyde/aldehyde-based disinfectant neutralizing stations are intended to facilitate the neutralization process following existing standards, protecting both the operator and the environment from the disinfectant vapors.

CS Medical LLC

Company Type: Parent

The TD 100, manufactured by CS Medical, is the first automated disinfector designed to provide high-level disinfection of transesophageal (TEE) ultrasound probes. The TD-100 has FDA 510k clearance as a medical device for the disinfection of TEE probes using TD‑5 high level disinfectant. The TD-100 and TD-5 is manufactured under ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 guidelines. The TD-100 disinfects each TEE probe with TD-5 disinfectant and provides a printed validation upon completion of a successful disinfection cycle. Microprocessor-controlled, the TD-100 provides easy interaction by the healthcare professional in charge of reprocessing the used TEE ultrasound probe.

Ladd Research

Company Type: Parent

Ladd Research was organized in 1954 by Margaret and Bill Ladd to develop and supply products for the growing field of electron microscopy. In the 1930's, Margaret and Bill had worked on the first electron microscopy built in North America at the University of Toronto. At the start of World War II, they moved to the United States to continue their research. In 1954 Ladd Research Industries was formed.
