A new (r)evolution in the pre-cleaning of ENT scopes, cystoscopes and bronchoscopes.
MINI is ENDO’s little brother, especially designed for the pre-cleaning of ENT scopes, cystoscopes and bronchoscopes. Like our acclaimed ENDO device, the ENDO MINI also covers all the steps in the pre-cleaning semi-automatically.
MINI the result of the field’s high demand to create a compact, automated endoscope cleaner that still gets the job done as prescribed in IFU. Tackles today’s cleaning errors due to time shortages and lack of knowledge.
For a technician, doctor, infection control specialist or other healthcare professional using endoscopes, guaranteeing a clean endoscope is a major challenge.
In the rush to start the next procedure, pre-cleaning is often cut short or the endoscope is simply set aside until after. Too often hospitals need to compromise on time, staff and education, resulting in poor cleaning results.
On top of that, the complexity of flexible endoscopes requires extra attention and accuracy when cleaning. However, all the above may not form any excuse as patients life are literally at stake procedure after procedure.
By leak testing your endoscope on a dry surface you will prevent more internal damage. Tiny leakages are mostly discovered in the last 30 seconds.
Therefore it is of the utmost importance to respect the 2-minute leakage time before immerging it in water for first flushing. If the leakage test has failed, you will not be able to continue the process. That way infections or further internal damage do not stand a chance.
After a successful leakage test, the shelves will automatically go down to start the first flushing. In the meanwhile, the sink has automatically been filled with detergent and water, thoroughly rinsing all the channels with respect for the correct water temperature and detergent contact time.
Already allowing biofilm and bioburden to breakdown.
Since the channels have already been flushed, the intensive brushing of the dry channels will go a lot smoother and all the week debris will be removed much easier, preventing internal damage (scratches).
FACT: our ENDO MINI records the entire brushing procedure with an integrated camera, as it is the only manual intervention. Afterwards, the video report can always be advised. In other words, 100% traceability of the entire cleaning procedure is ensured. This technology is unseen and most revolutionary.
NOTE: Only to be performed in case of hollow instruments.
Removing all the remaining debris that were loosened by the brushing procedure. An extra flush guaranteeing all channels have been thoroughly cleaned. The device is now ready for disinfection.
The future is automation:
