THE HYGIENE
SOLUTION
THAT FITS

Hygiene Commitment

PENTAX Medical strives to continuously improve patient safety and infection prevention in endoscopy. That’s why we are continually innovating products, optimizing processes, and integrating feedback from the market.

By offering solutions like the DEC™ Duodenoscope and the PlasmaTYPHOON and PlasmaBAG System, we are reinforcing our strong commitment to these vital topics. But real change comes from understanding the landscape – and reshaping it. Which is why improved hygiene and safety are the pillars that support all our research and development.

We work closely with experts for market insight to ensure that all products are directly based on their needs. Then we innovate for even better clinical outcomes – because a commitment is nothing without action.
