Features & benefits

DEFENDO™ Sterile Single Use Valves help prevent potential patient safety risks and eliminate the need for manual cleaning and reprocessing. Packaged sterile, DEFENDO™ valves easily incorporate into your infection prevention policy as a single-patient use item.

Endoscope valves are vital, sophisticated devices that require regular meticulous cleaning procedures. There are over 30 steps to proper manual cleaning and reprocessing of biopsy, air/water and suction valves, which can make the cleaning process difficult, if not impossible.

The DEFENDO™ Single Use Cleaning Adapter for OLYMPUS® endoscopes is used after the procedure to flush the air/water channel.This is done to prevent biofilm formation. And is seen as one of the most important steps in cleaning and disinfecting an endoscope.
