Ultrafast UV-C high-level
disinfection for ultrasound
Chronos leverages Yuvee®, Germitec’s pioneering HLD technology. Harnessing the germicidal properties of UV-C lightwaves, Yuvee enables photon energy to penetrate the cells of disease-causing microorganisms, including highly infectious human papillomavirus (HPV). Once inside, the energy is absorbed by the microorganism’s DNA, RNA, and proteins, rendering them inactive and unable to replicate and spread infection.
From start to finish, Chronos reprocesses ultrasound probes in approximately 90 seconds, accelerating clinical workflows and maximizing the number of patients examined.
Recipient of the Prix Galien award for Best Medical Device.
Approved for use with 1K+ probes
from major brands.
Eco-friendly technology protects
patients and technicians.
Automatically tracks and saves disinfection and use history.
~90-second cycle increases the number of patients seen.
Proven to kill HPV - including high-risk strains that cause cancer.
The Chronos Automated Verification System replaces the manual process of checking chemical indicators and test strips. This breakthrough technology both monitors the disinfection process and validates that disinfection is complete.
The system uses two photodiodes that measure the UV-C dose throughout the disinfection cycle. This ensures high-level disinfection (HLD). Then, a third photodiode — part of the independent control system — validates a complete disinfection cycle based on the UV-C dose measurement. The system then alerts the user that the cycle is complete.
