The Cystoscope Cost Calculator is the easiest and simplest way to compare the costs of reusable and single-use cystoscopes. With just a few questions, you can calculate your facility-specific cost per procedure.
The direct cost includes cystoscopes, repairs, and reprocessing, which vary from facility to facility. The indirect cost includes the costs associated with cross-contamination and procedure delays. The Ambu®aScope™ 4 Cysto is used in calculating the cost of single-use cystoscopes.
