Bothell, Wash. – Verathon Inc. is pleased to announce that its Verathon Medical Canada new product development and manufacturing facility has made enhancements to GlideScope GVL®, and Cobalt AVL and Cobalt video baton laryngoscopes to better withstand more rigorous vaporized hydrogen peroxide disinfection and sterilization systems.
