The global automated endoscopy reprocessor market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.7% over the forecast period, attributed to rising number of gastrointestinal diseases that is driving demand.
This document provides best practice recommendations with respect to endoscope handling, endoscope reprocessing, and storage area management during the COVID-19 pandemic. As more evidence becomes available, some of these suggestions may require subsequent updates. Disinfection, Handling, and Endoscope Storage.
Automated Endoscope Reprocessor (AER) 1. Soil Test for reference load 2. Final rinse water for viable count 3. Final rinse water for organism (Legionellae, Mycobacteria Pseudomonas Aeruginosa) 4. Residual proteinaceous contamination test 5. Feed water quality test 6. Inspection and maintainence test Validation Test Schedule. Item. Test Description. Weekly. Monthly. Quarterly. Annually. B.Carefully review and adhere to the endoscope manufacturer’s reprocessing instructions and to the IFU for chemicals or sterilants and any equipment (e.g., automated endoscope reprocessors) used. Completely immerse the cleaned endoscope and accessories in the disinfection solution, ensuring that the entire device is immersed.A 2014 study on endoscope use in Russia, China, and India found significant increases in productivity when facilities switched to automated endoscope reprocessing—especially when the average manual soak time was longer than the average endoscopy procedure time. For example, in Russia, the average endoscopy procedure time was 24.4 minutes, while the average manual endoscope turnaround time.
Monitor and its predicate device are automatic endoscope reprocessors intended for high-level disinfection of flexible endoscopes; this is accomplished by putting the flexible endoscopes in contact with the disinfectant for the appropriate combination of time and temperature. Refer to the following tables for comparisons of predicate and proposed device characteristics. AER Comparison Table.Read More

All of this in a compact, self-contained, stylish housing that is easy to clean, maintain and transport. Last but.Read More
Automated Endoscope Reprocessors (AERs) are important devices widely used in the health care setting to reprocess endoscopes to decontaminate them between uses.Read More
In bronchoscopy and gastroenterology, reprocessors are commonly used to provide a quick availability of endoscopes. However, ENT departments do not dispose of dedicated material, according to the French company Soluscope Group, which manufactures endoscope reprocessors and the detergents used to wash and disinfect them., In bronchoscopy and gastroenterology, reprocessors are commonly used to.Read More
An endoscopy (looking inside) is used in medicine to look inside the body. The endoscopy procedure uses an endoscope to examine the interior of a hollow organ or cavity of the body. Unlike many other medical imaging techniques, endoscopes are inserted directly into the organ. There are many types of endoscopes. Depending on the site in the body and type of procedure an endoscopy may be.Read More
It involves immersion of the endoscope in Tristel Fuse for Stella, a chlorine dioxide-based high-level disinfectant solution, and irrigation of the instrument’s lumen. The process takes five minutes and is the quickest high-level disinfection system known. Stella incorporates an audit trail process. A randomised single-blind comparison of the high-level disinfectants Tristel Fuse (chlorine.Read More

In 1993 the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) reviewed all infections in the literature and found 281 cases of disease transmission from endoscopes, endoscopic accessories, water bottles, and automated endoscope reprocessors (AERs). 3 This number represents only one infection in 1.8 million endoscopy procedures. Of those cases, the majority (253) occurred prior to 1988.Read More
