Infection control is a key component of patient safety, particularly in the healthcare industry. Your patients expect impeccable attention to detail when it comes to how clean your practice’s tools and instruments are. The cleaner the better is always the rule and there simply are no exceptions or compromises. We at LED Apteryx understand these expectations and design our technologies in a way which makes disinfection quick and easy. The latest Tuxedo Digital Intraoral Sensor by LED Apteryx is designed to be fully submersible to ensure ease of disinfection, cleaning and patient safety.
Sensors are not smooth, impenetrable pieces of equipment; all sensors have seams and ridges on the head of the sensor housing, within which bacteria can penetrate and propagate. While disinfectant wipes may be used to eliminate bacteria and residue in preparation for a new patient’s procedures, the hermetically-sealed casing for the new Tuxedo sensor allows for disinfection by submersion, thereby allowing disinfectant liquid to make its way into every nook and cranny of the device’s surface. Please contact our team for a list of approved disinfectants and keep in mind that the USB connection should not be submersed in liquid, only the head of the sensor that is placed in the patient’s mouth. We also recommend always applying a hygienic sheath to the sensor prior to any examination for additional protection from cross-contamination.
Hermetically-Sealed for Superior Infection Control.
