Meet our cost-efficient solution for drying endoscopes after high-level disinfection.
Excelarate wipes are sterile, non-linting cloths specifically designed to meet endoscope manufacturers’ recommendations and professional guidelines for endoscope drying post-HLD/LCS.
As part of their respective Instructions for Use (IFU), Olympus®, Pentax®, and Fujifilm® call for the use of sterile gauze and non-linting cloths at various steps of an endoscope’s maintenance and care.
Recently released ANSI/AAMI ST91:2021 not only gives considerable focus to channel drying of endoscopes but also states that sterile/non-linting cloths should be used to dry the external surfaces and insertion tube of an endoscope.
Olympus, Pentax, and Fujifilm agree that sterile wipes should be used following the disinfection of an endoscope to ensure that the endoscope is not recontaminated. Other drying methods, such as air-drying or utilizing reprocessed towels or wipes that produce lint, can lead to cross-contamination and may leave lint or fibers on the endoscope.
Each Excelarate sterile pack contains two folded wipes, and the compact packaging makes them easy to store. The easy-open packaging protects the wipes against dust, contamination, and moisture that can lead to bacterial growth.
The wipes are EO sterilized, and each package has an EO indicator for visual confirmation. Each pack indicates the date of manufacture and sterilization expiration date.
Each single-use wipe can be used at any point during the care of an endoscope or instrument where the Original Equipment Manufacturer’s Instructions for Use or other applicable guidelines call for the use of a low-linting wipe or cloth, a lint- free wipe or cloth or when sterile gauze, wipe, or cloth is recommended.
Excelarate wipes cost approximately 60% less than other sterile, non-linting wipes on the market.
A single wipe effectively dries an endoscope, and the non-woven fiber offers superior strength and maximum absorption.
Say goodbye to other inconvenient or non-compliant drying methods and switch to Excelarate SPD Endo Wipe, a more efficient and effective solution.

Excelarate wipes are used for drying endoscopes after high-level disinfection or liquid chemical sterilization following OEM reprocessing requirements.
