12.9 % of probes remain contaminated following low level disinfection¹.

up to 7 % of ultrasound probes were found to be contaminated with human papillomavirus (HPV) after disinfection with low level wipes² ³ ⁴.

up to 9 % of barrier sheaths and condoms leak.

The recently published E-book tells all you need to know about disinfection and probe reprocessing: why it is needed, when it should be done, and how to do it.
