Medical Equipment for Olympus

If you purchase medical equipment, avoid Olympus. Their new global policy is they do not sell ANY parts for repair-everything has to be sent into their depot for an inflated price repair. They will not tell you this during their sales pitch. Also, they will only recommend glutaraldehyde or EtO for sterilizing their equipment (oh, amazing, they just happen to sell a machine that uses glutaraldehyde). Again, they will not tell you this during a sales pitch but then you're stuck once you buy their products. I would avoid Olympus with a ten foot pole. They are going to cause extreme loss, down the road, for repairs or for proper maintenance of your equipment. If you don't mind the inflated cost of EtO sterilization, or the increased harm of vapors of glutaraldehyde to your staff-go ahead and buy Olympus. But, if cost control is your concern, Olympus is only going to cost you. And people who wonder why health care is so costly, look no further than Olympus. They are only concerned with their annual returns, not savings.
