No cross-contamination

Reusable bronchoscopes are difficult to clean and disinfect due to their long and narrow working channel.
The transmission of pathogenic organism via contaminated reusable bronchoscopes remains an evident risk, even if appropriate decontamination procedures are adhered to.

  • Sterile from the pouch

Always available

With reusable devices often in the process of being decontaminated or repaired, some procedures need to be cancelled or delayed, resulting in financial losses for hospitals and critical patient care.

  • Ready to use solution
  • Frees up resources
  • Streamlines workflow

Low environmental footprint

Due to the use of detergents and personal protective equipment, reusable bronchoscopes are associated with a higher level of material and energy consumption as well as emissions of CO2 compared to single-use scopes.

  • Decrease waste, energy and resource consumption

Cost-effective

Decontamination cycles and recurrent repairs of reusable bronchoscopes represent very significant and often underestimated costs. Procedures are complex, costly in terms of material and human resources and require several steps, immobilizing equipment for long periods of time.

  • No processing or repair
