Available as a feature upgrade that customers can purchase for their new or existing STERRAD® 100NX® Systems, the 60-minute DUO Cycle joins the EXPRESS, FLEX and STANDARD Cycles on the STERRAD® 100NX® System platform, creating one of the widest ranges of low-temperature sterilization options offered today.

"For over 19 years, I've relied on the hydrogen peroxide gas plasma technology of STERRAD® Systems to reprocess instruments for my hospital and the six hospitals within our system," said Nancy Chobin, from sterile processing services at Barnabas Health. "With the additional flexibility and features to help increase productivity, ASP is clearly committed to building upon a trusted technology with the STERRAD® 100NX® System."

STERRAD® 100NX® System DUO Cycle offers improved efficiency in sterilizing most single-channel flexible scopes, cameras and accessory light cords together as a set, and it has been validated to sterilize flexible endoscopes with a single-channel polyethylene or Teflon lumen with an inside diameter of 1 mm or larger and length of 875 mm or shorter.

The STERRAD® 100NX® System with DUO Cycle is now available in North America, Europe, and Asia. For more information, please contact your local ASP representative, call 888-783-7723 or visit www.aspjj.com. You can also follow us on Twitter.com/ASPJJ and Facebook.com/ASPJJ.
