New Research Shows the Impact of Single-Use Cystoscopes on Clinical Workflow
Independent research from Duke University showed that utilizing single-use cystoscopes in outpatient clinic procedures improved clinical efficiency, which in turn led to increased patient volume. In this study, single-use cystoscopes increased patient consults from 12 to 21 per day.

New Study: Reducing Infection Risk with Single-Use Cystoscopes
New research from the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville indicates that the use of single-use cystoscopes was associated with fewer post procedure encounters compared to reusable cystoscopes, with a decrease from 7.1% to 2.2%. The study published in Urology Practice also found lower rates of positive urine cultures and fewer hospitalizations, showing how single-use cystoscopes offer advantages in reducing complications following procedures.
