Cervical Cancer Month : Probe disinfection can help prevent cancer

Preventing the No. 1 Cause of Cervical Cancer 

Research has found high-risk Human Papillomavirus (HPV) strains 16 and 18 cause 90% of cervical cancer, the seventh most common cancer in the world and the fourth most common cancer among women in 2020. This is why Germitec’s Chronos™ has been rigorously tested to kill these HPV strains to prevent cross-contamination risk in ultrasound.

Watch this webinar to find out how to effectively reduce human papillomavirus (HPV) cross-contamination risk in ultrasound 

Award-Winning Chemical-Free Disinfection 

In 2020 Germitec’s Chronos system received the Prix Galien Award for Best Medical Device for its breakthrough patent technology that replaces chemicals with photons. It is currently the only chemical-free high-level disinfection system for decontaminating ultrasound probes between patients.

The award recognizes excellence in scientific innovation that improves the human condition globally.
