Medical Device Sorting
The single use device (SUD) reprocessing industry has demonstrated the value of collecting, sorting and processing certain used medical devices. A core process to any successful remanufacturing or reprocessing outfit is the ability to safely and efficiently process large volumes of product to ensure maximum recovery from this supply chain. Vanguard offers innovative solutions to meet this need according to the following three paradigms of our sorting program:
State of the art software is used to record data generated by the sorting operation. This technology isolates sorting to a specific area and prevents the unnecessary consumption of paper and eliminates a potential vector for cross contamination.
Principles of lean manufacturing are applied to ensure the sorting process is repeatable, reliable and 'poka-yoke'. The process can be drilled down to the item level for a detailed view of the product stream.
Experience + technology + process optimization = economical solution for our healthcare partners in need of medical device segregation.
