A new paper is up on Medidex - "Endoscope contamination and rinse water TVCs", which details the results of testing performed by SMTL on washer disinfectors and scope channels, and provides some useful information on the relationship between rinse water and endoscope contamination.

We have recently updated two of our research papers.  Firstly the Safer Sharps - Scalpel and Suture needles paper has been updated with the latest information.  Sharps injuries are a common occupational hazard for health care workers in the NHS and this report summarises 'safety' scalpels and associated products.  Secondly the Infusion therapy - requirements for flow control paper has been updated.  This paper summarises guidance currently available in the area.

A wide range of articles on sharps can be found on our Safer Sharps page.

An article on  cytotoxic/chemotherapy waste disposal containers has now been published on medidex.

A new article on "The use of integral fluid filters in single-use infusion administration sets" is now available.

A user evaluation study of phlebotomy needle-stick prevention devices in the Welsh NHS has now been published on medidex.
