- Tristel says its Fuse disinfectant used in its Stella decontamination tray has been approved as a high-level disinfectant by Australia's Therapeutic Goods Association (TGA).

Stella and Fuse were specifically designed for the decontamination of small single-channelled instruments, with a particular focus on urology.

Flexible cystoscopes were used by urologists for urethral, bladder and kidney examinations and Stella is targeted at this instrument.

It could also be used to decontaminate bronchoscopes used in respiratory medicine, laryngoscopes used in anaesthesia, manometry catheters used in GI physiology, transoesophageal echo probes used in cardiology, and nasendoscopes used in hospital ear, nose and throat clinics.
