FDA targets risks from reused medical devices.

A recent warning from FDA highlights the risks of infection from medical instruments that have not been properly cleaned and disinfected before being reused. The FDA has been working with manufacturers and healthcare providers to ensure that manufacturers provide concise reprocessing instructions that are scientifically validated and that healthcare facilities understand and can implement adequately. Furthermore, reusable medical devices should be designed to facilitate optimal cleaning, disinfection and sterilization. BluTest has a specific experience and FDA approved protocols for the verification of disinfection procedures for medical devices and knowledge to support the appropriate design of cleaning/disinfection procedures.
