Endoscopy equipment can be fussy. With so many touchpoints, heavy use and delicate parts, the need for scope repair is a regular factor for practices and hospitals. Whether it’s a rigid, semi-rigid or flexible endoscope, your San Diego, CA business can count on MedTec Applications to thoroughly assess, repair and return your scope quickly.
Endoscopy equipment repair begins when you select MedTec Applications for your scope repair. Our skilled and trained repair technicians will carefully unwrap your scope.
Our employees repair all makes and models of endoscopes – from leak tracing to lens cleaning to moisture removal. We also do preventative maintenance services that can extend the life of your scope.
With a flexible endoscope, there are many touchpoints for the instrument every time it’s used. We begin by doing an assessment of the scope’s inventory to ensure all the parts are there. We then examine each part to identify the problem and what repairs are necessary.
We will communicate these needs with your San Diego, CA practice. Once you have authorized our repair work, we will carefully disassemble the scope and complete the scheduled repairs.
Minor and Major Repairs
Some repairs are rather minor and can be repaired quickly. These include unblocking an air or water channel, repairing or replacing a water nozzle, replacing a bending sheath, recalibrating angulation controls, removal of light liquid invasion, unblocking a suction or biopsy channel or repairing a damaged insertion tube or universal cord.
Sometimes, endoscopy repairs require more work. MedTec Applications regularly tackles more complex repairs such as replacing a suction or biopsy channel, removing a major liquid invasion or x-ray stain from optical components, fixing light sources, replacing an elevator channel or fixing teaching attachments.
Once your repairs are completed, we inspect all of the lenses and refocus all the lenses. We check the scope for leaks and ensure the scope is fully cured. We put each scope through an extensive inspection process that ensures the scope is returned to you in full functioning order. We provide a detailed report of the repair work that was done and carefully pack the scope before we return it to you.
Many manufacturers offer expensive equipment maintenance agreements that use original equipment. However, our cost-effective options provide high-quality service and an attention to detail and customer service.
Our repair services help prevent infections, improve patient safety and work properly at all times.
