All Medivators endoscope reprocessors are designed and constructed to give years of dependable service. They provide a variety of automated yet variable time settings for
It is essential that the user reads and understands this manual prior to using the reprocessor. This manual contains pertinent information for proper care and handling of equipment. Generic reprocessing instructions for various endoscopes are outlined in this manual. However, due to the variety and individual complexities of different types of flexible endoscopes, it is recommended that the user have a working knowledge of cleaning and disinfecting procedures outlined in each endoscope manufacturer’s operating manual.
The reprocessor is an automated device used for reprocessing (disinfecting) flexible endoscopes. The device is attached to a water source and a drain. Refer to Section 3.1. The device uses a Liquid Chemical Germicide (LCG) which is held in the reprocessor’s reservoir located under the counter or in the optional cart.
Failure to follow the instructions in this manual may result in malfunction, improper reprocessing, or damage to your endoscope as well as possible damage to the reprocessor.
Note: It is especially important that the user follow closely the recommended quality
control procedures daily.
This endoscope reprocessor is available in the following basic models:
CER-1 Single endoscope reprocessing capability
CER-2 Dual endoscope reprocessing capability
This User/Service Manual applies to the following models:
CER-1/MV-1/5001X (All referred to as CER-1 throughout the manual.)
CER-2/MV-2/5002VX (All referred to as CER-2 throughout the manual.)
Filtration system – Certified bacteria retentive grade, water filtration system to provide USP grade sterile water for rinsing.
Transfer Pump – Pump to transfer LCGs in or out of the chemical reservoir, minimizing staff exposure to chemical vapors.
Chassis Dimensions 14 X 22 X 20-inches 31-inches with lid open
(height – width – depth) 36 x 56 x 51cm 79cm
CER-2 Weight (approx.) 70 lb 32 kg
The CER-1 has one channel connector for each of the internal endoscope channels. This results in maximum flow through channels regardless of difference in channel sizes.
The CER-2 is capable of reprocessing two endoscopes with additional connectors.
All fluids pumped continuously during fluid cycles.
8-10 psi per channel
8.5-10 ml/sec flow rate
All fluid cycles are followed by air purge cycle to clear internal tubing and channels of all fluids.
Complete disinfection of ALL internal fluid lines.
Two or three fresh water rinses follow high-level disinfectant cycle depending on
Allows visual inspection of the amount of high-level disinfectant.
High-level disinfectant easily accessible for testing.
Reservoir can be removed for cleaning.
Closed system minimizes fumes
Data on file reports less than 0.04 ppm glutaraldehyde vapor during normal operation of unit. (below established TLV of 0.05 ppm)
Minimal worker exposure
High-level disinfectant can be pumped directly into and out of the reservoir for disposal of high-level disinfectant into containers rather than into the drain, using optional automated transfer pump
Water filtration system
Prefilter – 1 micron
Postfilter – 0.2 micron (Certified bacteria retentive grade filter)
