Eliminating the risk of contaminated equipment is vital
Reusable equipment, such as valves and scopes, can show contamination after reprocessing and may be the source of infections if cleaning, drying, storage, and hand hygiene are inadequate.
For example, studies show that bacteria, spores, yeast, and/or mold can be found on up to 50% of cleaned valves.1,2
In addition, reusable scopes can be fragile. Their maintenance can be costly, with frequent repairs and labor-intensive cleaning and sterilization requirements.3,4
Long guide wires may also pose a risk as their length makes them vulnerable to accidental contact with unclean surfaces.5
