Reusable valves can be a breeding ground for bacteria, leading to risk of cross contamination and infections. Remove that risk and save time on cleaning and reprocessing by choosing a sterile, single-use endoscopic valve kit from Healthcare Essentials.
In fact, the latest BSG guidelines recommend the use of single-use endoscopic valves, stating that:
“The handling of loan endoscopes requires special consideration. They will arrive without detachable components (valves), and units will be expected to provide these”, adding that ““It is essential that valves are removed and discarded before the [loan] endoscope is returned to the manufacturer...Units may consider the use of single use valves for this purpose.”
Manufactured by Smart Data Medical, the Disposable Andorate® Kit Complete includes a Suction Valve and Air/Water Valve Kit for the Olympus® Endoscope 140/160/180/240 & 260 Series.
Unlike reusable valves, the Disposable Andorate® Kit does not risk cross-contamination or infections from the reprocessing procedure, making it an extremely safe and easy-to-use choice for GI care.
