The science of reprocessing in the EP lab

Includes strict, repeatable validation tests required for FDA 510(k) clearance such as:

eplabdemoIdentification of EP catheters by individualized serial numbers and unique device identification (UDI) numbers ensures stringent control of the life cycle of each device

comprehensivecleaningEach catheter is soaked and brushed in a pH-neutral enzymatic cleaner

electricalDiagnostic EP catheter electrical tests include: measurement and/or calculation of impedance, resistance, leakage current and handle dielectric strength
mechanicalTorsion, deflection, 3-point bending, buckling, deflection/flexion fatigue, tensile, connector and simulated use tests to determine mechanical functionality and reliability of reprocessed EP catheters
materialIntegrity of material construction electrode joint seals, and tip curvature are verified against stringent, device-specific specifications
sterilizationDevices meet all industry standards for packaging and sterilization

Collection efficiency in the EP lab

Collections are customized to fit your hospital’s footprint. Our containers have been methodically designed to ensure we maximize your collections regardless of space and size limitations. The program is built for speed with minimal extra work for hospital staff.

  • The staff should place EP catheters and cables, diagnostic ultrasound catheters and catheter introducer sheaths in Stryker’s clear plastic drawers. Just place them in the bin and Stryker will do the rest!
  • Our representatives will collect these containers, on a schedule that meets your facilities needs, and ship them to our reprocessing production facility in Phoenix, Arizona.
