Evaluation of Medically Significant Bacteria in Colonoscopes After 8 Weeks of Shelf Life in Open Air Storage
TLDR
There is no conclusive evidence on the length of time colonoscopes can be safely stored before requiring redisinfection, so further evidence to assess fungal or viral growth is needed to be able to make suggestions for colonoscope shelf life.
