Hookups provide the critical connection between the endoscope and the automated endoscope reprocessor (AER). Minntech has hookup designs validated for the largest array of endoscope models, more than any other manufacturer. In fact, there is not a flexible endoscope a Medivators® AER cannot reprocess. Examples include: gastroscopes, colonscopes, EUS scopes, cystoscopes, bronchoscopes, twin channel, dilators, and TEE probes.
Hookup designs are validated for proper flow to provide high-level disinfection of semi-critical endoscopes and accessories. The interactive Medivators Hookup Guide provides quick access to determining the correct hookup-scope combination for your AER, region, disinfectant and detergent. Service hookup assemblies are now available for some Advantage Hookup models. The hookup design varies depending on the connector model used.
