The day offered presentations by HIGHPOWER Labs’ President, Gary Socola and Validation Manager, Donald Tumminelli on the “Validation of Reusable Medical Devices.” Chuck Hughes, Retired Founder of SPSmedical Supply Corporation, also discussed a program on “Reprocessing Medical Devices – Issues & Solutions.”

The group was given a tour of HIGHPOWER’s state-of-the-Art laboratory and newly renovated low temperature sterilization laboratory. This enabled the healthcare professionals to get a first-hand learning experience about validation test protocols for cleaning, packaging, sterilization and storage of reusable medical devices.

“HIGHPOWER has a long history of education whether it be end users or the product development team. We can tailor a program for just about anyone in between”, said Socola. “Combined, our staff has well over 100 years of experience in the field of reusable medical device validation and regulatory compliance.”

MDRAO Delta Chapter President, Tony Leite, said that “the trip to HIGHPOWER was a great success. Our participants walked away with a better understanding of the testing and validation required before reusable instruments can touch the hands of an MDR technician. Our host’s presentation was thorough and intriguing allowing for an opportunity for questions and answers. We will encourage our other chapters in Ontario to visit HIGHPOWER.”
