The ENDODRY Drying and Storage Cabinet was shown via a peer-reviewed study in the American Journal of Infection Control (AJIC) - to dry internal endoscope lumens within one hour, and external endoscope surfaces within three hours providing storage for up to 31 days with only low microbial levels detected.1 Available in single-sided or pass-thru models (front and back door) for separation of wet and dry areas, the ENDODRY Drying & Storage System works paired with the ADVANTAGE PLUS™ AER and cassette which minimizes handling.
How the ENDODRY Drying and Storage System Works
After processing in an ADVANTAGE PLUS AER, the endoscope is transferred to the ENDODRY Drying & Storage System in its cassette, then uses external instrument grade compressed air to aid in the amount of time needed for the drying process of a flexible endoscope.
Assists with the endoscope drying process in as little as one hour for the internal channels and three hours for the external endoscope surfaces. The cassette then maintains the status of a patient-ready endoscope for up to 31 days.1
