ETO Sterilization

OEM’s allow for the re-sterilization of Cath lab EP cables. Onsite ETO sterilization is done away with in modern hospitals. As a result, cables that could be re-sterilized need to be purchased or sent to reprocessing companies. Some of these companies can cost facilities up to 50% of the original price.

You save money re-sterilizing your cables through Nova Medical’s ETO re-sterilizing program. We partner with an accredited lab to provide ETO sterilization. We have a four-step protocol in place for this.

  • EP cable connectors need to be wiped down with disinfectant by facility staff prior to pickup.
  • Nova Medical will pick up cables from the facility and leave a work order listing the cables that were picked up.
  • Pickup time will be determined by the facility’s director.

Vanguard Medical conducts an initial visual inspection by a SPD CRCST certified technician. A proper cleaning following the manufacturer’s specifications is performed.

Nova Medical utilizes an EP Cable Tracking System. A unique barcode is tied to each individual cable. This way we track how many times a cable has been reprocessed and allows us to timely return the cable to the facility unprocessed and tagged for replacement.

Each cable is packaged with a label that includes the make and model number, a control number and the sterilization parameters. Our QA program ensures that each cable is packaged following manufacturer’s sterilization parameters.

Vanguard Medical follows all manufacturers specifications for ETO re-sterilization. Any cable reprocessing is conducted in-house and by a SPD CRCST certified technician. Confirmation of sterility is determined by using biological indicators.

Each batch of cables will be boxed and shipped back.

Vanguard Medical returns a batch of cables with a turn-around time of 7 to 10 business days.
