Aim: The aim of this study was to describe the endoscope reprocessing procedure validated with microbiological cultures and ATP bioluminescence tool kits. Material and methods: We examined the endoscope reprocessing procedures at the Ministry of Health Bakırköy Sadi Konuk Research Hospital using microbiological cultures and ATP bioluminescence tool kit during 2014. Results: We examined 42 flexible endoscopes and 4 (9%) endoscopes were found to be contaminated. Stenotrophomonas maltophilia (>100,000 cfu/mL) was isolated from irrigation bottles and extended..
