DEFENDO™ Sterile Single Use Valves help prevent potential patient safety risks and eliminate the need for manual cleaning and reprocessing. Packaged sterile, DEFENDO Valves easily incorporate into your infection prevention policy as a single-patient use item.
Endoscope valves are vital, sophisticated devices that require regular meticulous cleaning procedures. There are over 30 steps to proper manual cleaning and reprocessing of biopsy, air/water and suction valves, which can make the cleaning process difficult, if not impossible.
In 2010, CANTEL became the first company to offer single-use endoscope valves. We now manufacture over 9 million DEFENDO Valves every year. We continue to innovate, bringing our customers the infection prevention resources needed to protect their patients and staff.
