Medtrica Solutions: Facilitating Clean and Hygienic Endoscopy
Robert Penz, CEO
The endoscopy area of medical science has evolved a lot in the past few decades. Earlier only semi-flexible instruments were used for the procedure, but then after some years, the era of fibroendoscopy with the use of glass fiber optic came. Then the following years brought enhancement in the size of the image, working length was raised, and several new additions happened. But when it comes to the issues that need more attention in endoscopy, nothing much has changed. Though endoscopy is generally safe, there are still some key issues that require particular attention, and the biggest of them all is hygiene. Over the years, a number of cases have come to light where patients suffered due to contamination and non-hygienic nature of endoscopic devices. It is not wrong to say that the cleaning staffs at healthcare facilities are doing a remarkable job to maintain the cleanliness, but endoscopes are difficult to handle due to the notorious nature of the cavities that are unattainable for cleaning. To deal with such stubborn nature of the cavities and to avoid infection, Medtrica, a Redondo Beach-based medical manufacturing company provides a diverse range of high-quality pre-cleaning and protection products to help with the reprocessing on medical instruments, including endoscopes.
In the endoscopy and respiratory section, the firm offers a range of products that help in keeping endoscopy equipment disinfected. The cleaning products are bedside pre-cleaning kits containing protease, amylase, and lipase PLUS surfactant detergents that thwart bioburden and bio firm from drying in or on the equipment while DuraSponge can preserve a higher concentration of cleaning solution and it is also attuned to several types of enzymatic and disinfecting solutions. Endoscope Tip Protectors’ role is to stop any damage to fragile optics of endoscopy instruments by preventing dangerous moisture build-up.

Due to its prevention characteristics, the protectors let the equipment to be accumulated, shipped and pre-cleaned without any fear.
In addition, Medtrica Solutions also provides medical professionals with a series of items and materials necessary to care for their patients in every way. The products include therapeutic mattresses, hospital bed mattress, O.R./Surgery table pads, X-ray table pads, and more.
Explaining what makes Medtrica unique, Robert Penz, CEO, Medtrica Solutions says that they address things the way their clients want them to. He also adds that since its inception in 2004 the company has garnered a reputation for delivering products of high durability and superiority. “That is why we have a robust client retention rate. We have a minimal number of clients moving on to other competitors,” he adds. Sharing an exciting anecdote on that note, Penz recalls a situation where they have an endoscope product, which is usually hung in a closet. One of the issues was moisture build up, resulting in potential bacteria growth, which made it more difficult to clean and use. “So, we developed a long sleeve, inhale sleeve like application, called scope sleeve, which prevents bacteria growth by offering an obstruction filter from the environment,” says Penz.
Medtrica is going to get a new 3000 square feet facility in October; also a section of the firm is shifting to another facility in Missouri to address logistic issues. The firm will be launching a disinfectant wipes and sprays products which would not be toxic. “We want to get into organic, non-toxic solutions for individuals in the workplace, in the medical workplace and the environment. It is essential to us, we are a very environmentally-conscious company, we can’t recycle much, but now we see the need for more organic and sustainable solutions,” concludes Penz.
