ChanlDry™ Endoscope Drying Cabinet
Drying is a crucial step in infection prevention.
nosocomial infection as cleaning and high-level disinfection.”6
Inadequate drying of endoscope channels is a possible cause of microbial proliferation during storage.5
A continuous flow of air through endoscope channels helps eliminate moisture needed for bacterial growth.
ChanlDry features two independent filtered air flow cycles that distribute air:
- Around the outside of endoscopes
- Through endoscope channels
Does your endoscope storage meet society standards?
- AORN: Flexible endoscopes should be stored in a drying cabinet.1
- CDC: Drying the endoscope is essential to greatly reduce the chance of recontamination of the endoscope by microorganisms that can be present in the rinse water.2
- SGNA: Endoscopes must be stored in an area that is clean, well-ventilated and dust-free in order to keep the endoscopes dry and free of microbial contamination.3
- AAMI: The endoscope should be hung vertically with the distal tip hanging freely in a well-ventilated, clean area, following the endoscope manufacturer’s written IFU for storage.4
