Cascade Refining Inc. began buying disposable, platinum containing medical appliances in 1984 when Angioplasty and Electrophysiology were new procedures. Although the electrodes on Electrophysiology catheters are tiny, the Platinum in them is very valuable. By recycling these disposable devices you will be bringing in some added income to your laboratory or sponsoring foundation.
Many other companies that offer to buy these devices do not do the processing and refining of the platinum themselves. Instead, they buy them from you and sell them to a company that does the actual processing. By sending your EP catheters and angioplasty guidewires to us, you are sending them straight to the refinery and cutting out the middle-man. We do not have a minimum lot size and offer free estimates and evaluations. We are one of the few companies that offer a price sheet online so you know exactly what to expect when you send your materials to our facility. Feel free to contact us at 1-800-955-5857 to see what we are all about!
Many laboratories and hospitals actually throw away these valuable devices! It is true that the platinum electrodes are very small but the value adds up to large sums of money that is literally being thrown away every year. Save some money and recycle your used EP catheters and angioplasty guidewires!
