Endoscope manufacturers, regulatory bodies, and health care facilities are increasingly concerned about the spread of communicable diseases, including clinically relevant microorganisms, on reprocessed medical devices. Healthmark Industries and Nelson Labs have partnered to create an endoscope sampling kit for use with flexible endoscopes with a purpose of monitoring and reporting objective microbiological results from reprocessed clinical scopes.
The Flexible Endoscope Sampling Kit is sold by Healthmark Industries and test services are provided by Nelson Labs as a full-service kit.

The kit fee includes the kit and test services that include quantitative microbial counts and up to two organism identifications with an interpretation-of-data memo. If multiple organism identifications are required, the clinic can opt to purchase those as needed for a fee as quoted by Healthmark.
