September 29, 2014 (Charleston, SC) Belimed, Inc. (www.belimed.com), announced today that their latest ultrasonic washer/rinser is now confirmed acceptable for use in the manual cleaning process for Intuitive Surgical‘s EndoWrist®
surgical instruments designed for use with the da Vinci® Xi™
Surgical System. Belimed Inc., part of the Belimed Group, a world leader in cleaning and sterile processing systems and solutions in health care and life sciences, has a 40-year plus commitment to providing continuous improvements and infection control solutions within sterile processing departments worldwide.
Belimed’s new UW 565 Ultrasonic Washer/Rinser can now be used with Intuitive Surgical‘s da Vinci Xi
surgical instruments and accessories. Only a handful of sonic cleaners currently on the market are listed as compatible in Intuitive’s Rev. C Xi
Readiness Guide. The high-capacity UW 565 Ultrasonic Washer/Rinser is large enough to accommodate the extended 26″ Xi
Designed to address current clinical issues with limited sonic capacity, space and flexibility, the UW 565 is a single-chamber wash/rinse unit featuring dual stack tray capacity, and standard cannulated irrigation systems. It is designed to fit inline with existing SPD processing sinks and countertops. At the same time, it offers more than twice the capacity of current wash and rinse chamber consoles in a narrower overall width. It is ideal for reprocessing large volumes of both current and future orthopedic, bariatric, MIS and robotic instruments.
