Download the Cantel Augmented Reality App and virtually design your reprocessing department!
Have you ever wondered what it would look like to have a Cantel Automated Endoscope Reprocessor and Drying & Storage System in your endoscopy department? Well, we worked on that and are proud to introduce the Cantel Augmented Reality App to you.
With our Augmented Reality App you can now place a virtual AER or Drying and Storage cabinet in your real life endoscopy department. This App enables you to get an idea of what it looks like to work with our equipment. You can place multiple units of the same machines in a room to see how many fit in, or you can make a complete workflow by combining the different systems
Download it now and have a look yourself!
What can you do with the Cantel AR App?
You can now virtually design your endoscope reprocessing department with the Cantel AR App. You can place a virtual AER or Drying and Storage cabinet in your endoscopy department. This enables you to have an idea of what it looks like when working with our equipment. The Cantel Augmented Reality App enables us to introduce the new RAPID Workflow in your reprocessing department. The RAPID Workflow is the future of endoscope reprocessing, drying and storage and can now be virtually placed into your department! Give it a try, because a new world opens for you! Make sure you always check your surroundings before usage!
To get an understanding of the possibilities, view the video or just download the Cantel AR App!

- What exactly is augmented reality?
Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive 3D experience that combines a view of the real world with computer-generated elements. AR is different from Virtual Reality (VR) in that VR is a completely self-contained computer environment, while AR layers computer elements alongside real objects in real time.
- How can I install the app?
Go to the App Store or the Google Play Store and search for ‘Cantel AR’. You can download the app free of charge.
- Does the app also work on a tablet?
Yes, the app works on tablets and smartphones.
- Does my phone support augmented reality?
Newer devices will have AR software already integrated into the phone. Make sure you are running iOS 11.0 on your iPhone or have the ARCore app installed from the Google Play Store. Requirements for ARCore for Android: Android 7.0 or later (some devices will need at least Android 8.0 in order for ARCore to work).
- How can I rotate one of the AR objects?
When you have the object in front of you, you can tap the object once to lift it. You will see a blue line appear under the object. With two fingers on the screen of your phone, you can rotate the object. To continue, tap the object once again to lower it.
- How can I move the object?
When you have the object in front of you, you can tap the object once to lift it. You will see a blue line appear under the object. You can then move the object using one finger on the screen to move backwards or to the side. To continue, tap the object once again to lower it.
- How can I zoom in on the object?
Move your mobile device towards the object to zoom in.
- How can I see one of the AR objects?
Select one of the machines and you will see the text: “Move your phone around to find a location to place the object”. Adjust your phone so that it is aimed at a flat surface until you see grey dots appear. Tap the dots to place the object.
- How can I view a reprocessing cycle?
First you have to place a "RapidAER" in your room. Then you press the "Play" button in the bottom of your screen. The washing chamber of the RapidAER closes and the cycle starts. You walk towards the machine with your device in front of you until you're almost standing in the machine. Move your device in or on top of the washing chamber to take a look inside. Move as close as you can to see more details.
- I can’t see the dots to place the object – what should I do?
Move your phone so it is aimed at a different type of surface and try again. A surface with some structure tends to be more suitable.
Version November 2021
