Advancements in design and manufacturing technologies is fostering an age of unprecedented innovation in the development of reusable medical devices and instruments. As designers develop smaller, more complex and intricate devices, companies must not overlook the importance of ensuring these products can be effectively cleaned and disinfected before being reused.
