Clarus Inspection Scopes allow for early visual detection of internal debris and damage while striving to reduce risk of costly device related infections.

 

DON’T BE BLIND TO DANGERS HIDING INSIDE YOUR MEDICAL DEVICES

$9.8 billion is spent annually treating the top 5 hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). 1

Cori Ofstead’s recent study utilizing a borescope to look inside internal channels found irregularities in 100% of ureteroscopes such as staining or debris. 2

 

2017 AORN Guidelines 

“Tools such as video borescopes of an appropriate dimension (length and diameter) may be used to visually inspect the internal channels of some medical devices.” 3

 

ANSI/AAMI ST91: 2015

“Lighted magnification should be used to inspect endoscopes and accessories for cleanliness and damage.” 4

“Endoscopic cameras and borescopes penetrate the lumen and allow for improved visual inspection.” 4
