DEFENDO® Sterile Single Use Valves

Products Description

DEFENDO Valve Kit 100305
Product Number:

Endoscope valves are vital, sophisticated devices that require regular meticulous cleaning procedures. There are over 30 steps to proper manual cleaning and reprocessing of Biopsy, Air/Water and Suction Valves, which can make the cleaning process difficult, if not impossible.
Healthcare-related infections from endoscopy continue to occur, for two reasons:

  1. Failure to adhere to current disinfection guidelines and
  2. Because of the complex design of endoscopes, which includes “springs and valves” as part of the endoscope that complicate adequate disinfection.¹

MEDIVATORS DEFENDO® Sterile Single Use Air/Water, Suction and Biopsy Valves:

  • Eliminate manual cleaning and reprocessing of reusable valves
  • Help create consistent practices
  • Reduce the potential for errors
  • Available for Olympus® Endoscopes and Pentax® 90 Series GI Endoscopes.
