EVOTECH® Endoscope® Cleaner and Reprocessor

The EVOTECH® Endoscope Cleaner and Reprocessor is the first commercially available system that both cleans* and high-level disinfects endoscopes. Developed by Advanced Sterilization Products (ASP), a Johnson & Johnson company, the EVOTECH® System makes endoscope reprocessing a highly automated process, eliminating tedious brushing* resulting in confidence that endoscope reprocessing is effective and consistent. This can save valuable time, improve health care professional safety and reduce the risk of infection.

*Does not eliminate bedside pre-cleaning. Manual cleaning of qualified medical devices (endoscopes) is not required prior to placement in the EVOTECH® ECR when selecting those cycles that contain a wash stage (for those endoscopes qualified for clean & disinfection only). Not all endoscopes can be automatically cleaned, but may be high-level disinfected. The EVOTECH® ECR will only disinfect an EUS scope. The customer will be responsible for the manual leak testing and manual cleaning of the scope per the manufacturer’s instructions for use. Please refer to the EVOTECH® ECR User’s Guide and specific connection diagrams for more detailed information regarding cycle capabilities.
