Brushes used during manual cleaning must now be fully disposable.
Double Sided Port Brush
Our brushes are double-ended with a small brush for passing through the channel (internal diam size 2.2 mm – 5.3mm) with a large port brush on the opposite end for cleaning within the biopsy port and valve housing.
Also available is the unique Caterpillar brush – this brush achieves a 15 times better clean with one pull through than conventional cleaning brushes, fitting both small and large endoscopes. The packaging also contains a peel-off traceability label to add to the patients notes.
Pull through Brushes are available in 3 channel sizes and 3 different lengths.
Universal precautions state that all patients should be treated the same. Then why do some people still re-use cleaning brushes?
This could be because until now there has been no available disposable brushes that can be used on very narrow channelled instruments such as uretroscopes, intubating bronchoscopes and hysteroscopes.
Our Superfine brushes fit a channel size of less than 2mm and are disposable enabling you to standardise across your department regardless of the size of scope.
