Waterline maintenance is an important part of a surgery’s infection control daily regime.
The Maintain | Monitor |Shock approach is an effective and practical method for ongoing self-contained waterline care.
A-dec now has a new chairside solution for quantification of total flora in dental unit waterlines that is rapid, reliable, easy to use and economical to help improve health risk management.
Contamination or degradation of water’s microbiological quality is caused by one or all of the following:
– untreated water supplies
– low-quality network materials
– compromised operating procedures.
There is no definitive solution to eradicate microbiological issues. Only an approach starting with the observation of the network state, followed by the monitoring of the corrective action effects can result in ineffective management of microbiological risks.
How does it work?
The A-dec 2-minute DWL Digital Test monitors the microbiological quality of your dental unit water through ATP-metry.
A sample of water is collected from the dental unit and put through a bacterial filter.
A reagent is used to extract bacterial ATP, which is then quantified using a luminometer. The measurement is then validated with another reagent to avoid false negatives.
The entire process takes less than two minutes and can be done chairside.
