What Threats May Be Hiding on Your “Patient-Ready” Reprocessed Valves? – Are your reprocessed valves truly patient-ready? A private study by Nova Group showed that of 64 Air/Water and Suction valves deemed to be “patient ready” 60.2% contained bacteria, yeast, mold, or spores. Likewise, an EndoNurse report found that 8 of 15 (53.3%) biopsy port valves exhibited some form of debris after cleaning.
