Cervical Cancer Awareness Month Leads to Improved Ultrasound Probe Disinfection Practics – January 2021

High-Risk Human Papillomavirus (HPV) 16 & 18 causes 90% of cervical cancer

Cervical cancer was the 7th most common cancer in the world and the 4th most common cancer among women in 2020. Research has found that High-Risk Human Papillomavirus (HPV) 16 & 18 causes 70% of cervical cancer. This is why Germitec’s Hypernova Chronos has been rigorously tested to kill high-risk HPV cancer strains 16 and 18 to prevent cross-contamination risk in ultrasound.

Germitec received in 2020 Prix Galien Award for Best Medical Device for its Hypernova Chronos™ system, a breakthrough patent technology that replaces chemicals with photons. It is still today the only Chemical-free High Level Disinfection system for decontaminating ultrasound probes between patients.

The award recognises excellence in scientific innovation that improves the human condition globally.
