The Pyromol-Test is based on the formation of a protein-dye complex. This reaction detects the protein chain itself, therefore it can still show chemically altered and denaturated protein. This is mandatory for the detection of residue after chemical disinfection processes. According to the EN ISO 15883 standards, medical devices must be completely free of residue. Compared to other tests, the Pyromol-Test is considered more sensitive and selective, giving you a better result.
Swabbing is the preferred sampling technique due to the fact that it can remove completely insoluble residue and hence make it available for the detection method. In order to apply sufficient pressure to remove persistent residue on surfaces and standard instruments short swabs are used. For cannulated instruments and channels of flexible endoscopes the right size of swab must be chosen in order to achieve an effective sampling.
- Sensitive Testing
In order to detect tiny amount of residue a sensitive test method is necessary for a safe test result. Spots of dried blood in the μg range are clearly visible on stainless steel therefore a chemical test method must at least be within this range. Our Pyromol-Test can detect 1μg of protein residue and can also distinguish it from other substances like water spots or corrosion.
