How the Disposable Endoscope will Benefit the Environment
No more cleaning
Each cleaning process requires
- litres of water, which have to meet stringent purity tests;
- cleaning chemicals, which can be hazardous and by their nature will often wear or damage the scopes they clean.
The resulting contaminated water is then disposed of directly into the mains sewage.
Brushes and other disposables are required for each wash, which are immediately discarded for incineration.
A single-use scope removes all of this, directly benefitting the environment.
