AAMI-ST91 Endoscope Storage Guidelines

endoscopy scope storage and drying cabinets for up to 16 scopesThe use of endoscopy scopes is extensive, and more hospital acquired infections (HAIs) have been linked to endoscopes than to any other medical device. Available on Vizient GPO Contract #CE2900 (Vizient customers call for contract pricing. That’s why standard AAMI-ST91 was adopted. Part of the requirements address storage:

  • endoscopes should hang vertically
  • storage should be well ventilated
  • there should be no bends in the scope
  • scopes should not touch one another
  • should be in a closed cabinet
  • with venting and air circulation

To meet these requirements, we offer innovative, state-of-the-art endoscopy scope storage and drying cabinets. The cabinets ensure both large and small endoscopes are stored and dried properly so that your hospital can fight to reduce HAIs and protect valuable scopes from damage.
