Company Overview

The MEDIVATORS endoscopy product portfolio includes procedural disposables and endoscope reprocessing systems.  Certain devices used during an endoscopy procedure are very difficult to clean and disinfect, like water bottles and endoscope valves, creating very real patient safety concerns.  The MEDIVATORS line of disposable infection control products like irrigation tubing and single-use valves eliminate the need for very difficult manual cleaning and disinfection thus reducing infection risk and increasing patient safety. 


MEDIVATORS also offers the most comprehensive line of endoscope reprocessing products including detergents, disinfectants, automated reprocessors and verification systems. All of MEDIVATORS reprocessors and disinfectants are 510(k) cleared by the FDA and carry the appropriate CE Mark.  MEDIVATORS is the leader in endoscope reprocessing with the largest number of reprocessors in-use worldwide.
