Assured safety

The Vac-a-Scope System is designed with patient safety in mind. It preserves scope integrity by removing air – without introducing additional contaminants that could compromise safety or cleanliness.

  • Independently type tested to ensure against microbiological growth for up to 30 days
  • A tamper-proof, triple-sealed vacuum bag ensures the integrity of the endoscope until it is opened for use on a patient
  • Protects the endoscope during transport between the reprocessing area and procedure room
  • Independent monitoring system (IMS) automatically monitors and documents the process
