Andersen Sterilizers News  | JANUARY 15, 2021

Haw River, NC—Picture this: you turn on the news and the announcer leads with breaking news “Infectious outbreak linked to hospital and clinic endoscopes.” Let the media storm and regulatory survey frenzy begin!

As Sterile Processing professionals, this is our industry’s worst nightmare and on a recent Vendor Spotlight, Beyond Clean talks with Ted May, Andersen Sterilizers CEO, and Dr. Larry Muscarella of LFM Healthcare Solutions LLC about a one-of-a-kind sterilization technology proven to sterilize the toughest endoscopes on the market.

"Our FDA clearance is the first terminal sterilization clearance for duodenoscopes. We’re offering a dry process that allows you to store scopes for up to 6 months and it’s offering a 10-6 sterility assurance level. This is true sterilization unlike the other options on the market. I think this is going to be a real game changer for healthcare facilities that want to sterilize these very critical instruments."
