Markets Served

Any healthcare setting including but not limited to Hospitals, Medical Centers, Outpatient Clinics, Ambulatory Surgery Centers, physician offices, etc. where endoscopy procedures are performed and endoscopic instrumentation require effective cleaning and high- level disinfection.

Our History

Recognizing the needs of the healthcare community and the inherent shortcomings associated with manual reprocessing methods for reusable medical devices, Wassenburg Medical Inc. was established in 1981 to design, manufacture and distribute automated systems to clean and high-level disinfect complex devices including multi-channeled flexible endoscopes. These automated processes are standardized and have been validated using a patented, simulated in-use microbiological decontamination protocol under worst-case conditions. Utilizing ultrasonics during the cleaning cycle, patient debris and contaminants are effectively dislodged and removed from instrument surfaces. To obtain optimum flow of reprocessing solutions (detergent, disinfectant, filtered rinse water, etc.) through each internal channel of an endoscope, individual channel adapters are used to ensure contact of fluid within channel surfaces. Current state-of-the art AERs have followed the lead and have also developed one-on-one channel–adapter connectivity as well as feature channel monitoring capability.
