Latex-Free Ultrasound Probe Cover by EDM
The EDM latex-free ultrasound cover uses a high-quality and tear-resistant polyethylene material. As a result, they are suitable for all procedures involving allergic patients or staff, and can be used in “latex-free facilities.” Each probe cover kit is sterile (ethylene oxide), individually wrapped, and contains a gel packet.
Latex-free covers will drastically reduce the risks of cross-contamination, resulting in fewer Hospital-acquired infections. They will also protect your ultrasound equipment from blood, soil, and contaminants. Therefore your machine will be easier to clean and disinfect. It will also extend its lifetime, and cut the costs associated with repairs and maintenance.
Our latex-free ultrasound probe covers are telescopically folded for an easy and safe application. Once unfurled over the transducer, the cover is held in place with two elastic bands. The sheath can easily be installed by either one or two persons while preserving the sterile field. At the end of the exam, removing the cover is fast and easy, eliminating the risk of spreading infections.
Latex-free ultrasound probe cover in four sizes
Latex-free probe covers come standard with sterile gel, in a box of 25 procedure kits. They are available in 3 lengths:
- 12″ (30 cm)
- 32″ (80 cm)
- 48″ (122 cm)
In addition, two probe cover kits are available without gel:
- 5.5″ x 12″ – 100/box
- 7″ x 48″ (18 x 122 cm) – 50/Box
The 12″ length is recommended for vascular access procedures (IV or catheter placement), and pain management treatment such as injections. On the other hand, the 32″ and 48″ are suitable for the operating room, or for anesthesiology (nerve blocks & regional anesthesia).
Besides, all the covers feature a 3D-end which consists of seam-free contact area with the lens of the transducer. It will result in clear and artifact-free scannings.
Each procedure kit includes an EDM sterile gel packet (20mL) and two elastic bands.
Transducer covers DO NOT replace proper disinfection. For more information, please refer to the CDC disinfection guidelines
