Accrediting agencies look for traceability processes that are compliant with evidence-based standards and guidelines. trophon2 with AcuTrace® RFID technology simplifies the creation of accurate digital records, easily obtained from your trophon2 to support audit-readiness.
Automated Digital Traceability Across the Workflow
trophon2 increases user compliance and supports audit-readiness through automation, capturing data across the entire reprocessing workflow.
AcuTrace RFID technology records operator, probe and cycle data to capture and demonstrate user compliance.
AcuTrace-enabled consumables and accessories include:
Audit-Ready Compliance and Archiving
AcuTrace simplifies the creation of accurate digital records, accessible on your trophon2 to support audit-readiness. AcuTrace electronically captures disinfection data in accordance with requirements in USA, CAN, ANZ, UK & EU.1-14
This data is easily accessible to suit a variety of user traceability methods:
- Printer label capturing AcuTrace inputs and disinfection results
- Download disinfection records to USB
- Optional AcuTrace® PLUS allowing API access, supporting digital disinfection data archiving*.
*Custom API middleware required to enable this capability. All connectivity, configuration and integration with customer IT systems is the responsibility of the customer.
The trophon® family includes trophon® EPR and trophon®2 which share the same core technology of 'sonically activated' hydrogen peroxide.
