Mobile Instrument specializes in servicing flexible and rigid endoscopes, powered surgical equipment, general and laparoscopic handheld instruments, video cameras and processing systems, case carts and rolling stock sterilizers. Headquartered in Ohio, the business operates through a network of more than 200 mobile repair labs along with satellite repair facilities in Tennessee, Missouri, Kansas and Southern California.
