These costs will include a per-procedure estimate of machine and tray cost, all disposables, irrigation fluids, nursing time and any scope damage caused by the disinfecting agents. It is not possible to blind the people conducting the disinfection since the two products are different in appearance and procedures required. Exclusion criteria include the requirement of a biopsy during the procedure.
Participants will be allocated to the next available cystoscopy clinic day. Cidex OPA is a solution containing ortho-phthaldehyde which is used in conjunction with a Medivator specialised cleaning machine.
Cost-effectiveness of the 2 disinfectants will be assessed: In this way, investigators allocating participants to a cystoscopy clinic study day do not know which disinfectant will be used on that day. It is anticipated that there will be at least 8 clinic study days.
