At Masimo, we offer recycling solutions for all Masimo pulse oximetry sensors. By recycling sensors with Masimo instead of reprocessing through a third-party, your facility can gain peace of mind that all sensors meet our clinical performance standards, while also contributing to your sustainability goals.
We continually strive to enhance the sustainability of our business practices. From sensor design and disposal, to what goes into making them, we use materials that are less wasteful and can be refurbished or reclaimed without compromising quality.
Through the Masimo Sensor Recycling Program, hundreds of thousands of pounds of used sensors are collected and processed by an e-waste facility to recover available recyclable materials—helping reduce unnecessary cost and waste.
While third-party reprocessing may seem like a good option for sustainability, these reprocessed sensors can also compromise performance and quality standards.
Third-party reprocessing alters single-use sensors from their original form and function, which may have an adverse effect on patient care.
Your participation helps divert sensor materials away from landfills. As a result, sensor components are consumed as part of reprocessing or recovered for use in everyday products.
Masimo partners with a recycling facility to process sensors through an industrial grade shredder.
Copper wire and plastic insulation are shipped to a large metal smelter.
Materials go into the smelter at a high temperature, where combustible components like plastic serve as fuel to maintain the heat.
Copper and other metals are liquified and separated into elemental components. Leftover slag material is reintroduced back into smelting process.
Recovered material is used in everyday recycled products.
Participate in the Masimo Sensor Recycling Program and benefi t from dependable sensor performance, waste reduction, and cost savings—without the risks associated with third-party reprocessed sensors.
