Tristel Duo OPH is an effective, fast and compliant high-level disinfectant for ophthalmic and optometry medical devices.

Within ophthalmology and optometry, clinicians are required to ensure the highest level of infection control is adhered to. However, eye care is often viewed as a low-risk area where a low-level disinfectant will be suitable, resulting in inadequate device disinfection.

Achieving high levels of efficacy at a low concentration, Tristel Duo OPH kills microorganisms of concern including SARS-CoV-2 and adenoviruses in 30 seconds. This short contact time enables quick reprocessing of medical devices at point of use, increasing patient throughput.

Description

Tristel Duo OPH is an effective, fast and compliant high-level disinfectant for ophthalmic and optometry medical devices.

Within ophthalmology and optometry, clinicians are required to ensure the highest level of infection control is adhered to. However, eye care is often viewed as a low-risk area where a low-level disinfectant will be suitable, resulting in inadequate device disinfection.

Achieving high levels of efficacy at a low concentration, Tristel Duo OPH kills microorganisms of concern including SARS-CoV-2 and adenoviruses in 30 seconds. This short contact time enables quick reprocessing of medical devices at point of use, increasing patient throughput.

Applications

Use Tristel Duo OPH to high-level disinfect ophthalmic and optometry medical devices including:

  • Diagnostic contact lenses
  • Laser contact lenses
  • Tonometer prisms
  • Ophthalmic ultrasound probes, including A-scan and B-scan ultrasound probes
  • Pachymeters

Compatibility

Tristel Duo OPH has been tested and proven to be compatible with the instruments of major manufacturers including Haag-Streit, Ellex, Volk, Quantel Medical, Reichert and Accutome.

For more information on our compatibility testing, please view our Compatibility Guide.

Traceability

Keep track of each Tristel Duo OPH disinfection procedure with Tristel 3T.

Tristel 3T is the digital traceability system that makes tracking each decontamination procedure secure, fast, accurate and smart.

Chemistry

Tristel Duo OPH utilises Tristel’s proprietary chlorine dioxide chemistry, a well-documented and highly effective biocide.

Tristel Duo OPH has two separate compartments that contain 125ml of Tristel Base Solution (citric acid) and 125ml of Tristel Activator Solution (sodium chlorite). Upon pressing the pump, the two solutions mix and chlorine dioxide chemistry is generated.

Chlorine dioxide does not form hazardous by-products or halogenated compounds.

Due to the way chlorine dioxide breaks down and destroys microorganisms, resistance cannot develop over time. Find out more about the mode of action of chlorine dioxide here.

Efficacy

Tristel Duo OPH is a high-level disinfectant and is proven effective against a wide range of microorganisms in 30 seconds, including:

  • SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)
  • Acanthamoeba castellanii (one of the causative organisms of Acanthamoeba keratitis)
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRE)
  • Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE)
  • Candida albicans
  • Aspergillus brasiliensis
  • Adenovirus (responsible for adenoviral epidemic keratoconjunctivitis)
  • Herpes Simplex Virus type 1

 

What is SARS-CoV-2?

SARS-CoV-2 is a severe acute respiratory syndrome virus and the strain of coronavirus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic.

Coronaviruses are a group of airborne viruses that spread via respiratory droplets. These droplets can be directly transmitted to a new host or indirectly via contaminated surfaces.

Testing demonstrates that Tristel’s proprietary chlorine dioxide chemistry is effective against SARS-CoV-2 in 30 seconds.
