What is UNO-FLUSH® ?
UNO-FLUSH® is an all-in-one High Action Channel Cleanser and Scope Sponge designed for the initial flush and wipe of an endoscope immediately post-procedure.
UNO-FLUSH® is provided in stable packaging with an easy peel lid and dedicated scope sponge to wipe down the outside surface of the endoscope.
The UNO-FLUSH® tub is also clear, so that the nurse can see exactly how much solution has been sucked up and is both completely safe to use and 100% biodegradable.
The unique blend of surfactants in UNO-FLUSH® provides an extremely low surface tension and starts to break down gross debris immediately upon contact, preventing the formation of biofilm within the endoscope channels. UNO-FLUSH® is a non-fixative and also contains no enzymes avoiding the problems that affect other solutions where there is concern over an increase in sensitisation in the handling of enzymatic detergents. UNO-FLUSH® is also anti-foaming and contains corrosion inhibitors, making it ideal to use with endoscopes.
UNO-FLUSH® is powered by Virusolve+ EDS® which is dedicated and approved for endoscopy use. It has been tested for endoscope compatibility and has also undergone trials at the Hospital Infection Research Laboratory in Birmingham.
European and World Guidelines for Decontamination of Equipment for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy state that decontamination should begin as soon as the endoscope has been removed from the patient.
"As soon as the endoscope is withdrawn from the patient, pre cleaning should begin. Before the endoscope is detached from the light source and video processor, detergent solution is sucked through the working channel" (ESGE –ESGENA guidelines: Cleaning and disinfection in gastrointestinal endoscopy)
