Dynamic combination of chemical and laser lights for bacterial biofilm disinfection in flexible ureteroscope (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

The present research proposed a combination of a chemical (glutaraldehyde - GTA) with either 808 nm or 405 nm laser light to disinfect bacterial biofilms (both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria) inside polytetrafluoroethene tubes that mimic the working channels of the flexible ureteroscopes. The combination of (GTA+405 nm) was hypothesized to be more effective than the combination of (GTA+ 808 nm) for ureteroscope reprocessing to prevent any secondary infection in the urinary tract during the ureteroscopy.
