ScopeControl is set up for endoscope testing with 6 fully automated test and measurement functions. Each function is designed to verify a specific element of the endoscope under test and provides detailed feedback on quality and usability. By using fully automated endoscope testing, endoscopes are tested under the same conditions and preset specification every time.
All endoscope testing results are presented in a measurement report providing valuable details about the quality of the endoscope.
This is really the first objective measuring method and results are stored automatically. This helps us to secure procedures conform the MIC committee (minimal invasive surgery) guidelines, says Guido Kortleven, head of medical instruments and control. It reduces costs and is the best tool to avoid defect endoscopes entering the operating theatre.
“The reasons are simple”, says Jan Wilterdink. “For the first time it becomes possible to check and control the quality process of endoscopes. Objective measurements result in improved work processes and high standards for the instruments used during the operations. This is what we need. We like to improve our service from the CSSD to our customer the Operating theatre.”
With ScopeControl we get to grips with quality management to become compliant with the covenant on safety when using medical technology in our hospital.
We have selected ScopeControl to secure the brand-agnostic testing of endoscopes, for its automated testing and reporting.
