Buffalo Filter is a world leading medical device manufacturer and supplier of surgical smoke evacuation equipment. Our products are used to evacuate and filter hazardous smoke plume and/or aerosols created during over 95% of all surgical procedures. Proven to contain toxic gases, live cellular material (including blood fragments) and viruses, this plume may also cause respiratory and eye irritations or nausea in healthcare professionals and may create visual problems for the surgeon.
Buffalo Filter was started in 1991 in Buffalo, NY as a small, privately-owned company manufacturing its own brand of filters and smoke evacuation systems. Since its acquisition by Medtek Devices in 1995, Buffalo Filter has grown into an industry leader that currently manufactures hundreds of OEM, private label, and co-labeled products. In addition, Buffalo Filter continues to offer its own brand of technologically advanced smoke evacuation equipment, filters and accessories used by a wide variety of medical specialties. Buffalo Filter distributes its products and services throughout the United States and 52 countries world-wide.
Currently owning 8 patents, with several other concepts patent-pending, Buffalo Filter is constantly raising the bar and setting new standards for the creation of superior products. Buffalo Filter offers one of the most comprehensive and technologically advanced smoke evacuation product lines in the world. Our products are convenient to use and effective for both the staff and patient.
Buffalo Filter is committed to constantly improving products to make them safer, more efficient, and more affordable for our customers. We are well known for our outstanding manufacturing capabilities, timely delivery of advanced products and services, and consistently exceeding our customers’ expectations. We also provide educational information concerning the dangers of surgical smoke plume to healthcare workers, thereby promoting a safer work environment and improved patient safety.
In 2004 Buffalo Filter announced the successful achievement of ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 13485:2003 registration from Underwriter’s Laboratories, Inc., a registrar accredited by UKAS and SCC. Achievement of these certifications and registrations cover all design, engineering, manufacturing, sales, and customer service protocols for Buffalo Filter products to meet the required quality standards recognized throughout the United States, Canada, and the European Union.
The achievement of the ISO 9001:2000 quality management system and ISO 13485, which is specifically designed for medical device manufacturers, reinforces Buffalo Filter’s commitment to quality systems & performance for both internal and external customers. It has been a major milestone for the foundation and strategic vision of the company.
