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 device to support audit-readiness.
Automated Digital Traceability Across the Workflow
The trophon2 device 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 technology simplifies the creation of accurate digital records, accessible on your trophon2 device to support audit-readiness. AcuTrace technology 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 technology family includes trophonEPR devices and trophon2 devices which share the same core technology of 'sonically activated' hydrogen peroxide.
