Tune in as we take you beyond the labels and buzz words into the practical experience and insight that can help you build a working QA program and role in your own department.

    GI-Scope: US, EU, and the Battle for Safer Endoscopes with featured guest Nick Bromiley

    Scientists, engineers, and manufacturers across the globe are racing to find answers to the challenges facing endoscope reprocessing in the 21st century. But are there differences in how these issues are being addressed depending on which country is making the standards? How have various infectious outbreaks impacted these discussions in Europe & the United States? On this episode of the Beyond Clean podcast, we invited Nick Bromiley, AGTS, CFER, CSPDT, ARIA, Clinical Training Specialist at Ambu USA to weigh in on these conversations and provide insight as both a trainer and technical specialist in endoscope reprocessing. Tune in for one of our favorite themes on our podcast -- the science of reprocessing & the reality that microorganisms don't care about geographical boundaries.
