SteriView™ Instrument Inspection and Infection Control System

A new class of advanced small diameter, near field inspection scopes designed to provide ready access to and imaging of the interior chambers, lumens and working channels of medical and surgical devices and endoscopes.

Hospitals and Surgery Centers currently lack the requisite visualization technology in compliance with the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation and American National Standards Institutes ST79 and ST91 Standards or the forthcoming guidance mandates expected to be handed down by Congress and enforced by the FDA.

For the first time, SteriView™ will be used to provide Hospital and Surgery Center Sterile Processing and Operating Room Departments visual confirmation that no sources of potentially infectious bacteria or bioburden remain in their instruments after cleaning.

The need for SteriView Instrument Inspection and Infection Control Systems is immediate and urgent and is expected to continue to grow over time with the expansion of “Minimally Invasive Surgery” (MIS) Procedures. Reprocessed instruments play an essential part of the enormous numbers of procedures (approximately 14 million colonoscopies, 1.7 million arthroscopies, 2.5 million laparoscopies in the US, annual). Also contributing to the need is the emergence of antibiotic resistant pathogens.

Transmission of infectious agents to patients via reusable instruments is an on-going and unnecessary hazard for patients and a significant liability for healthcare providers. SteriView offers cost-effective inspection of instruments, as well as the recording and documentation of inspection results. This documentation offers institutions a practical method of risk management, process improvement, and infection control.
