New Duodenoscope Technologies
New duodenoscope technologies such as single-use endcaps and single-use duodenoscopes are evolving and are designed to help reduce the risk of cross-contamination due to ineffective reprocessing.
Comparison of Single-Use Duodenoscope vs. Single-Use Endcaps
Currently, the EXALTTM Model D Single-Use Duodenoscope completely eliminates the need for reprocessing to provide multiple benefits.
|Benefit*||EXALT Model D||
|Eliminates risk of patient infection due to ineffective reprocessing||Yes||No|
|Enhances infection prevention efforts||Yes||Yes|
|Eliminates duodenoscope reprocessing training and compliance||Yes||No|
|Decreases waste from reprocessing such as disinfecting consumables||Yes||No|
Where in a duodenoscope can biofilm exist?
Single-use endcaps alone do not eliminate the risk of cross-contamination associated with reprocessing reusable scopes. Cross-contamination has been linked to other contaminated parts of a duodenoscope.
