Abstract : Endoscope washers and disinfectors are used to process endoscopes which are not used in sterile areas of the body like G.I tract or colon which cannot be cleaned by terminal sterilization. With the rise in use of endoscopic procedures in diagnostic and surgical treatments, there is a call for safe cleaning modus operandi for endoscopes. To avoid the faux pas created due to improper manual cleaning, an automated method of disinfecting is the most effective method. A prototype is built using a comprehensible microprocessor controller Arduino Uno. The sanitation of is done according to the national standards for monitoring of hygiene and the guidelines provided for the reprocessing of the medical product. Endoscopes undergo five stages of cleaning namely leakage testing, washing, aeration, disinfecting and rinsing. This review paper gives an insight of the cost effective prototype built, its working and its merits over manual method of cleaning and disinfecting an endoscope. Keywords— Endoscope washer, endoscope reprocessing, automatic cleaning, manual cleaning, Arduino Uno.
