Smart Healthcare™ equals smarter savings

Save hundreds of thousands each year with reprocessed IVUS and atherectomy catheters from Northeast Scientific.

Are you throwing away a significant cost-saving opportunity?

It’s common practice to assume that IVUS and atherectomy catheters are a single-use device. However, reprocessing is a safe, sustainable, and cost-effective option. Our reprocessed catheters have undergone an extensive disinfecting and sanitizing process and are FDA 510(k) cleared. Physicians are saving up to 30% on their IVUS and atherectomy catheters by partnering with Northeast Scientific.
