Equipment for cleaning and disinfection of endoscopes

Project 456

Problem to be solved

    Risk of contamination of patients after invasive intervention.

Proposed innovation

    The equipment geometry allows a safe and effective disinfection, avoiding damages to the endoscope. It has a backwash system that promotes the penetration of products in all channels several times. Made with transparent material, which allows the monitoring of the quality of cleaning and disinfection. Its design favors the safe use of the disinfectant material, which is irritating, volatile and very toxic.


  • The equipment is compact, easy to use in all healthcare establishments.
  • Easy maintenance, efficiency and low cost.
