The solution to overcome the hygienic challenges of endoscopy is the use of a sterile and single-use device. Since an endoscope is a complex high-tech product, it took significant efforts to develop a single-use device, that fulfills high clinical performance standards inherent with a multiple-use device at competitive costs.
In 2016 the first invendoscopy product for colonoscopy will be made available in the U.S. and Europe. It provides all benefits of a state-of-the-art colonoscope, but only the control unit will be reused. All parts that enter your body are sterile and single-use. The invendoscope SC200 addresses your risk of cross-contamination as it is just “your scope” and cannot be used on anyone else … ever!
invendo medical is also currently working to introduce also other sterile and single-use GI endoscopes in the future.
