Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments We at Murray do not have a policy regarding reprocessing single use sterile devices. If an item is opened by mistake it is disposed of and we lose money. We try to wait until it is needed on the field before we open seldom used items or when the item is expensive. With regulations being so strict regarding resterilization, we decided long ago not to reprocess any single use devices.
