What is an endoscope storage cabinet? As the name suggests, this is a special unit that is designed for an organized storage as well as display of clean endoscopes. Such cabinets usually feature special soft-plastic brackets that secure the endoscope heads, and are made of materials that insure ease of cleaning.
The cabinets should have proper vents in order to keep all the devices dry. Some models circulate clean air with the help of a high-efficiency particulate-air filter. They exhaust the air back into the room via an activated carbon filter. After the tools are decontaminated and the removable parts are detached, an endoscope storage cabinet can keep them clean for the next procedure. Never store them in carrying cases.
