Installations of Nanosonics’ trophon device in the UK have come full circle, with the 1,000th system going to King’s Mill Hospital, which was the first location to receive a device. Manufactured in Sydney, Australia, the trophon automated system for high level disinfection of ultrasound probes came to the UK in 2013, with the installation at King’s Mill Hospital funded by Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
In 2021 the UK Nanosonics team hit the milestone of the 1,000th installation of the system.
Lead sonographer Louise Cordon explained why the hospital chose the technology: “We chose trophon primarily due to its ease of use – it provides high level disinfection at the touch of a button.”
