In this episode of Medtech Matters, a podcast focused on the medical device manufacturing industry and the factors impacting it, we speak with Bryan Lord, CEO and co-Founder of Pristine Surgical. He provides a number of reasons why disposable endoscopes should be indicated for medical procedures. Lord also highlights some of the challenges with reusable scopes and how single-use solutions help to eliminate them. Specifically, the following questions are addressed.

  • Let’s start with a quick overview of what Pristine Surgical is about. Can you tell us about the company and technology?
  • Why have there been such problems with the cleaning and sterilization of endoscopes?
  • I understand safety in terms of instrument cleaning shortcomings, but has COVID had an impact as well?
  • Do you encounter questions regarding durability and/or functionality of single-use scopes? If so, how do you address them?
  • When compared to reusable scopes, are there any tasks that can’t be performed with a single-use scope?
  • Are the images and videos able to be shared in a similar manner to most companies’ scope offerings?
  • When people hear about a single-use product, they think of the trash created. Have you looked at the environmental impact of single-use versus reusable scopes?
  • What’s next for Pristine Surgical?
