Maximizing productivity in endoscope drying
“Recent changes to industry standards have further highlighted the need to dry endoscope channels after reprocessing, prior to use, and prior to storage. PlasmaTYPHOONdry reinforces PENTAX Medical’s commitment to the GI community and addressing its unmet needs,” says President of PENTAX Americas, Ojas A. Buch.
The PlasmaTYPHOONdry is a patented, fully automated process that utilizes an innovative approach to drying with two different levels of airflow. The process begins with a laminar flow and then moves to a turbulent heated flow to dry the endoscope channels quickly. After completion of the drying process, the endoscopes can be utilized on the next patient or placed into storage. With fast cycle times of one to five minutes, PlasmaTYPHOONdry can be added to the reprocessing regimen with limited interruption in daily routines. This new system reduces delays in reprocessing, better supporting the needs of physicians, nurses, and reprocessing staff across a multitude of departments.
The PlasmaTYPHOONdry is available as of December 2nd, 2022. Please contact your local PENTAX Medical sales representative for further information.
