A simple in-house gram negative bacteria test for rapid assessment
and reprocessing of flexible endoscopes.
Modern AER’s are effective tools for rendering scopes safe for use on the next patient but determining if the process was effective can be difficult to assess.
The NOW! Test offers rapid turnaround of flexible endoscope reprocessing by providing all the equipment necessary to conduct test analysis on site.
The test utilises a unique enzyme detection method as the easy to read fluorometer checks for the gram negative bacterial growth (<10 cfu) by reading tell-tale fluorescence in the recaptured water.
The gram negative test is simple to carry out in house with results typically available in less than 12 hours, eliminating the need for endoscopes to be dispatched for testing off-site.
