Frequently Asked Questions

Who can we speak with to train our staff on reprocessing endoscopes properly?

You can contact our Technical Assistance Center (TAC) at 1-800-848-9024, option 1. The TAC department can assist in answering questions on TJF-Q180V cleaning and reprocessing and obtaining additional copies of the TJF-Q180V Reprocessing Manual and supplemental educational materials.

Olympus also has dedicated field personnel, called Endoscopy Support Specialists, who visit customer sites to assess and observe customer reprocessing methods and to provide reprocessing training and education. If you would like an ESS to visit your facility to review and train on TJF-Q180V cleaning and reprocessing instructions, please request a site visit by calling our TAC department at 1-800-848-9024, option 1. Your Olympus sales representative can serve as a resource in assisting you in obtaining reprocessing information.

What are the steps required to ensure this endoscope is cleaned correctly?

Please follow every step in the current safety and reprocessing manual for the respective endoscope. As an additional reminder, automated endoscope reprocessors require manual cleaning completion before the endoscope is loaded in the AER.

How is the reprocessing process different?

The inside cover page of the TJF-Q180V Reprocessing Manual lists changes including:

  • Precleaning and manual cleaning are now required even when using an Automated Endoscope Reprocessor (AER)
  • Updated parameters for ethylene oxide gas sterilization cycles
  • Changes to the leakage test by extending the observation for bubbles through the instruction to, “Observe for approximately 30 seconds while deflecting the bending section of the endoscope by turning the endoscope’s UP/DOWN and RIGHT/LEFT angulation control knobs to confirm that there is no location on the endoscope from which a continuous series of air bubbles emerges. Then observe for additional 30 seconds while raising and lowering the forceps elevator by moving the endoscope’s elevator control lever to confirm that there is no location around the forceps elevator from which a continuous series of air bubbles emerges during the 30 seconds.”

This is not an exhaustive list of changes. It is important that you review the new TJF-Q180V Reprocessing Manual in detail.

What specific actions are taken during the annual inspection?

Olympus performs the following checks during the Annual Inspection:

  1. Check for foreign materials around Forceps Elevator
  2. Check for deterioration in the adhesive of Light Guide Lens
  3. Check the water tightness of the sealed part of Forceps Elevator
  4. Check for the wear in the shaft of Forceps Elevator
  5. Replace Distal End Plastic Cover and some parts of the Angulation Rubber

After inspection, Olympus provides feedback to the customer regarding the inspection results.

FDA Duodenoscope Surveillance Sampling and Culturing Protocol

In February 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and American Society for Microbiology (ASM) Working Group on Duodenoscope Culturing published a Duodenoscope Surveillance Sampling and Culturing Protocol as a quality control measure of the adequacy of duodenoscope reprocessing. Olympus was a participant in the Working Group and the development of this Protocol. This Protocol provides recommendations for healthcare facilities that choose to implement duodenoscope microbiological surveillance sampling and culturing. Olympus intends to facilitate awareness of this Protocol by hosting educational webinars and has published a link to the Protocol on our website. As always, patient safety remains our top priority. We are committed to developing solutions for healthcare professionals that help improve clinical outcomes and enhance quality of life for patients.

The Protocol can be found here.
