US Endoscopy announces full market release of the Take-Out™ transport pad

Mentor, Ohio — August 15, 2012 — US Endoscopy, a world leader in endoscopy device design and manufacturing, is proud to announce the release of the Take-Out™ transport pad. The Take-Out™ transport pad is a single-use pad designed for convenient and safe transportation of an endoscope to the reprocessing room.

“Infection control guidelines and compliance are topics of focus in the GI units today,” says Gulam Khan, US Endoscopy CEO, President, and Co-chairman. “The Take-Out™ transport pad is a safe and efficient way to help protect staff from exposure to biomaterial while protecting equipment during transportation.”

The Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates (SGNA) has issued guidelines* requiring enclosed transportation of an endoscope. The Take-Out™ transport pad helps units comply with these guidelines by completely enclosing the dirty endoscope within the pad. The absorbent material helps minimize the leaking of fluids and provides protection for the endoscope.
