Drying of endoscopes with oil-free compressed air

Soundproofed compressor unit SICOLAB mini Endo

The Robert Koch Institute and the German medical association hold the opinion that the drying of endoscopes after their manual preparation is of key importance. In order to avoid recontamination during gastrointestinal endoscopy, blow-drying the fibre or video endoscope with oil-free compressed air after the cleaning, desinfection and rinsing is recommended. Our SICOLAB mini Endo is a suitable highly efficient solution for this procedure.

"The compressor station for drying of flexible endoscopes has been recommended to me by some colleagues located in greater Munich. A particular aspect is the time saving for the treatment per endoscope by drying with the box."

"Since 4 years we are using this product and are very satisfied. Decision-making criterias were the very low noise, the compact design and very good handling. The length of the pistol is optimal, so also the endoscopes to be dried, which are still in the cleaning machine, are easily accessible. Furthermore the unit can be perfectly installed into the surgery cabinet. With a hose / tube duct through the work top the pistol with cone can be easily hang up and is then positioned properly and easy to hand on the work top."
