We also offer the NEW Batrik disposable channel brushes that can be used for cleaning endoscopes for an entire day. There is no longer a need to worry if your present reusable brush is cleaning effectively. After processing 10 endoscioes, simply discard the brush. The plastic sheaths that surround the twisted wire also aid in determining the rigidity or flexibility of the brush. This is useful when cleaning long channels with sharp bends.

Brush Guidelines

If you are unsure of which channel brush best suits your needs then use the following simple steps to help.

Part 1 - Instrument Specifications
A. What is the maximum length of the instrument(s) to be cleaned?
Add at least 5cm to that length so that you have adequate length to work with.
B. What is the inner diameter of the instrument?
Add at most 3cm to determine the diameter of the bristle to ensure effective cleaning.
Note: The bristle diameter has to slightly exceed the inner tube diameter. Bristles that are too large will bend too much and will not clean effectively.
C. What strength bristles do you need? How tough is the dirt and how delicate are the instruments?
Nylon is the softest, with Polyester slightly stiffer, Polypropylene slightly stiffer than that and Delrin the stiffest.
 
Part 2 - Brush Selection
Now that you have identifies the answers to Part 1 A, B, and C please follow the links below to find the perfect brush for you.
Notes:
- As a rule, if your present brush is 20.32cm in length and we only offer 25cm length with the correct diameter then that is generally fine
- In general our new brushes have more bristles than ever before which aid with more effective cleaning.
