US Endoscopy Announces Full Market Release of the BioGuard Air/Water and Suction Valves Kits


US Endoscopy announces the release of the BioGuard® air/water & suction valves 3 and 4-piece kits. The new kit options join the BioGuard® air/water & suction valves 2-piece kit (for Olympus®  GI endoscopes*) and now include the single-use BioShield® biopsy valve and Torrent® scope connector.

The BioGuard® air/water and suction valve kits offer Customers an alternative option to manual reprocessing and minimizing cross-contamination risks between patients. One kit is used per procedure, and then discarded – helping to support patient safety and offering an easier way to follow established infection control guidelines.

“As a leader in care and cleaning solutions, US Endoscopy understands the importance of ensuring patient safety and remains committed to broadening our portfolio,” says Tony Siracusa, vice president and general manager of US Endoscopy. “Offering our disposable accessories in three convenient kits is the next step in our effort to support infection control practices and provide our Customers with the peace of mind they are looking for.”
