Abstract

Reports of outbreaks involving Carbapenemase resistant Enterobacteriaceae have been associated with gastrointestinal endoscopy. We used Adenosinetriphosphate (ATP) bioluminescence to demonstrate cleanliness prior to Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). We compared ATP testing with microbiological monitoring for 40 duodenoscopes. ATP testing of duodenoscopes prior to ERCP procedures provided a timely marker of safety and quality.
