Don’t let the wrong wipe cost you thousands of dollars! Most disinfectant wipes used in today’s hospitals, clinics, and imaging centers cause damage to ultrasound equipment. Unbeknownst to many medical staff, these machines and transducers cannot be cleaned in the same wayas X-ray machines, CT and MRI units.
Using the wrong disinfectant wipe causes serious damage including:
