Why have a service contract?
Regular Servicing and Cleaning Prolongs Equipment Life
It is very important that you have your equipment serviced regularly. Like all High grade medical and veterinary equipment and endoscopes require regular servicing as well as routine maintenance. We recommend you clean your endoscopes before and after each procedure.
Did you know there are over 40 individual seals and o-rings that go into the construction of an immersible endoscope? Over time these seals can suffer from wear and perish from becoming dry. The distal end of the instrument is designed to be flexible but also needs to be resilient enough to withstand the harmful chemicals and acids. Over time glues, o-rings and rubbers will perish and need to be replaced. Failure to do so can harm the instrument. We offer a full range of cleaning and disinfection instructions for the benefit of nurses completely free of charge. Regular servicing will save you money and help with quicker, more accurate diagnoses.
What happens during a service?

- A complete channel system function test will be carried out to determine the condition and rate of air and water flow,
- Both the optical and light guide systems will be inspected for any signs of deterioration.
- Regular servicing of your endoscope can disclose wear and tear faults on your equipment before they become a major problem.
