      Can I use Prevention™ HLD8 to disinfect ultrasound transducers?


      Prevention™ HLD8 is appropriate for use with interactivity internal ultrasound probes. For external (dermal) ultrasound transducers, the use of an intermediate level disinfectant such as Rejuvenate™ Ready-to-Use Liquid or Wipes is an appropriate level of disinfection.

      We have conducted testing with a few common devices, including GE, Philips, and Sonosite units. It's always recommended to conduct a spot test on a small area of the probe to ensure there are no issues concerning compatibility.
