2019 Innovation Name: trophon2
Awards: 7th Most Innovative Health Industries Company
trophon2 is a transformational solution that is now becoming the standard of care across the globe for ultrasound probe decontamination. It is a fully automated solution, safe for patients, users and the environment in that it:
* is proven to be highly effective in killing bacteria, virus and fungi,
* has no exposure for the user to any toxic chemicals
* only generates oxygen and water as by products.
The solution is versatile as it can be used with any ultrasound brand and placed in the room with the patient optimising clinical workflow. It is simple to use and delivers full traceability meaning at any time a hospital can identify what ultrasound probe was decontaminated, in what departments, by who, on what date and time using what batch of decontaminant enabling hospitals to go paperless and be audit ready. Full decontamination and traceability is delivered within 7 mins with no intervention by the user required with the exception of pressing a start button. All this compared to the old mechanism of manually soaking probes in toxic chemistry that was not fully effective, time consuming (up to 40 min process), unsafe for user and environment and requiring manual writing of traceability records.
