Azopiram - reagent for detecting hidden traces of blood on medical instruments that have been prepared for sterilization. This drug is used to monitor all care presterilizing cleaning medical instruments which come into contact with the wound surface is contacted with blood or injectable preparations (for example, a set of operating tools). In addition to traces of blood Azopiram used to detect traces of rust, detergent with bleach, acids on medical devices. Trade name "Azopiram-set." In the reagent composition includes Azopiram aminopyrine 10% (in ethanol solution) aniline hydrochloride 0.10-0.15%. The set "Azopiram kit" includes a package of Reagent 1, Reagent 2 in orange tube and white tube with a reagent 3. Use one set Azopirama can hold about 2,000 productions reactions (if the flow rate of the working solution is 2 drops per reaction).
Use of the reagent
Azopiram To make 1 liter of solution requires 100g amidopirina 1,0-1,5g and aniline hydrochloride. Required to bring the solution to a volume of 1 liter with addition of 95% ethanol. The resulting mixture should be thoroughly mixed until completely dissolved. For immediate verification of the quality of cleaning medical instruments required to prepare a working solution by mixing equal parts Azopirama and 3% hydrogen peroxide solution. Before use, test for the suitability of the drug for 2-3 drops of a working solution should be applied to the bloodstain. In case within 1 minute a violet staining reagent is considered suitable for use. If the stain does not appear, then the solution can not be used. Staining that appeared after 1 minute after the test is not considered. Control of cleaning medical instruments before sterilization using "Azopiram kit" is held in medical institutions not less than 1 time per week. The monitoring process is organized and conducted head nurse office. A quarterly monitoring is carried out sanitary-epidemic station.
Instructions for use Azopiram
Working solution (Azopiram and 3% hydrogen peroxide in a ratio of 1: 1) is applied to the investigated products and medical instruments - a swab or wipe applied directly to the tool via pipette. To check the syringe (reusable) poured therein 3-4 drops of the working solution and repeatedly pushing the piston to wet the entire inner surface of the tool. To assess the quality of cleaning of catheters and other hollow articles therein Azopiram introduced via syringe or pipette. The solution was allowed to stand for 1 minute, after which it was poured onto a gauze pad. The amount of reagent that is required to verify product depends on its size.
