Hu-Friedy_CleaningMonitorsHu-Friedy, Chicago, has introduced its new Cleaning Monitors, the latest addition to its Instrument Management System (IMS) Cleaning & Care product line.

The Cleaning Monitor is designed for monitoring the efficiency of the cleaning process when using washer-disinfectors  and ultrasonic cleaners. The system consists of equipment-specific monitor strips and a reusable holder. The monitor strips contain a test soil that mimics the presence of blood and tissue that may be found on an instrument surface after its use. Full removal of the test soil from the strip indicates an effective cleaning process.

According to the company, used on a daily or per-load basis, the Hu-Friedy Cleaning Monitors give insight into the effectiveness of the cleaning process.

The equipment-specific Cleaning Monitor strips are available in packs of 50 for both washers and ultrasonic cleaners.
