Lab Infection Control - COVID-19

03/18/2020

As concern over the COVID-19 virus continues to grow and many labs are discontinuing all non-essential testing, MGC Diagnostics has received many inquiries as to the best practice for infection control when using our devices. Our products, although not critical care or emergency medical devices, are used to assess, diagnose and monitor the effect of COVID-19 on patients. The safety of our customers, their staff and patients is of utmost importance to us.  

Having clear and defined infection control policies is important for your protection. 

As such, we wanted to provide some guidance regarding infection control and cleaning options. 

MGC Diagnostics gives you three options for infection control – letting you make the choice that 
is right for your facility.

1. CHANGE
Simply change the filter and keep the same preVent® flow sensor and BreathPath™ patient circuit.
2. RE-USE
Change the flow sensor and patient circuit between patients and replace with disinfected components.
3. DISPOSE
Dispose of the flow sensor and patient circuit after each patient.

Changing out the patient test supplies can be done in <1 min with no warm-up time or recalibration of the system.
