STERIS | US Endoscopy announces full market release of BioGuard® air/water & suction valve kit line extensions

MENTOR, OHIO — APRIL 2, 2019 — STERIS | US Endoscopy, a leader in endoscopy device design and manufacturing, is proud to expand our BioGuard® air/water & suction valve kits portfolio with three new offerings. The new kit configurations join the existing line of disposable BioGuard air/water & suction valve kit solutions and feature our latest infection prevention product – the BioGuard® air/water cleaning adapter – Olympus.

The BioGuard air/water cleaning adapter – Olympus is designed specifically for Olympus GI endoscopes* offering a single-use option that flushes the air/water channel during the bedside pre-cleaning process. One BioGuard air/water & suction valve kit is used per procedure then discarded - eliminating the need for manual reprocessing and traceability with a specific endoscope.

“We are committed to offering a complete solution to support our Customers through the procedure and each step of the endoscope reprocessing cycle,” says Tony Siracusa, Vice President and General Manager of STERIS | US Endoscopy. “These new BioGuard air/water & suction valve kit configurations are another valuable product that help create efficiencies for our Customers, allow adherence to industry guidelines and help promote patient care.”
