Webinar - How High Level Disinfectants are Tested to Inactivate Human Papillomaviruses - HPV

WEBINAR

Learning Objectives

  • What are the HPV cross-contamination risk in ultrasound
  • What are the different HPV research test protocols
  • How HPV research supports clinical change in ultrasound probe reprocessing

Dr. Meyers has done extensive research in HPV

  • We have studied how different strains of HPV causes cancer, especially high risk HPV16 and HPV18
  • We were the first lab to develop a technique to grow natural High Risk HPV that causes >90% of cervical cancer and >60% at other anogenital cancers and are responsible for a significant portion of oropharyngeal cancers:1-4
  • How you produce high titers, mature virus, we have worked on this for over 35 years, we know how the virus needs to mature and be structurally stable. This provides the worst-case scenario are required by the FDA.
