PCI Medical, High-Level Disinfection Leader, Now CIVCO Medical Solutions
As of March 2016, CIVCO Medical Solutions expanded its position within ultrasound infection control by joining forces with PCI Medical, a leader within the high-level disinfection space. As one company, CIVCO Medical Solutions can now offer a more robust selection of products to help our customers maintain compliance in meeting infection control standards.
PCI Medical, founded in Deep River, Connecticut, led the manual high-level disinfection market for many years with the GUS Disinfection Soaking Stations™ for ultrasound probes and endoscopes. During much of that time, CIVCO Medical Solutions was a distribution partner for PCI’s GUS, storage, and accessory products.
CIVCO Medical Solutions has since launched ASTRA™, a line of automated high-level disinfection systems for endovaginal/endorectal and transesophageal (TEE) probes. The ASTRA TEE™ and ASTRA VR provide confident compliance and a standardized workflow with automated data logging and consumables tracking, the ability to disinfect up to two probes at once, and 11- to 13-minute reprocessing time without sleep cycles.
CIVCO is continuing the work PCI Medical has done to help customers maintain compliance with The Joint Commission by offering several educational and informational resources. Visit the CIVCO Guidelines Blog to learn more.
