Cystoscope Calculator Compares Single-Use and Reusable Costs

A team of health economists at Ambu can help determine your facility-specific cost per procedure with just a few questions.

Have you wondered if switching to single-use cystoscopes could benefit your facility financially?

With so many factors affecting per-procedural costs, this answer can be difficult to calculate.

That’s why Single-Use Endoscopy created the Cystoscope Cost Calculator, a simple way to compare per-procedural costs for cystoscopy using reusable or single-use cystoscopes. A team of health economists at Ambu can help determine your  facility-specific cost per procedure with just a few questions.

Per-procedural expenses take into account the cystoscopes themselves as well as repairs and reprocessing, which vary from facility to facility. There are also indirect costs to consider, such as treating device-related infections or procedural delays if cystoscopes are not available due to repair.

The Ambu aScope 4 Cysto is used in calculating the cost of single-use cystoscopes. Single-use cystoscopes do not require reprocessing and eliminate the cost of repairs, which is all factored into the final report.

Fields in the Cystoscope Cost Calculator may contain pre-populated data as examples for users who do not have specific facility costs readily available when filling out the online calculator. Other fields, such as the reprocessing and annual repair costs, contain data based on industry standards.
