Bronchoscopy: Ambu set new standards for single-use endoscope
Ambu has launched the aScope BronchoSampler: an integrated sampling solution. It aims to improve the bronchoscopy process sampling workflow and level of safety in the intensive care setting.
Bronchoscopy single-use endoscope has many advantages in clinical settings. Read them below.
Bronchoscopy: User-focused innovation
The aScope BronchoSampler is a one-of-a-kind system that simplifies the entire bronchoscopic sampling workflow. When the clinician performs a bronchoscopic sampling as part of bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) or bronchial wash (BW), the system makes the entire procedure smoother – from system assembly to sample procurement.
Bronchoscopy single-use endoscope: Elimination of one of the main frustrations for clinicians
A vacuum bypass in the new system enables switching between suction and sampling without a suction tube switch – one of the main hindrances in the current workflow. As a sterile, closed-loop system, the aScope BronchoSampler helps reduce the risk of sample loss and guarantees sample quality from start to finish. This supports accurate and timely diagnostics. Is improves safety for both patients and clinicians.
An innovative, integrated system: bronchoscopy single-use endoscope
The aScope BronchoSampler is designed to work seamlessly with the aScope 4 Broncho. It comes with all the critical components needed to perform BAL and BW procedures effectively and efficiently. And because it’s always ready when you are, the aScope BronchoSampler minimises the significant risks to patients that can result from equipment and workflow delays.
“I am particularly proud of two of the goals we have achieved with this launch,” says CEO Lars Marcher. “First, we wanted to ensure quality and simplicity in clinical procedures within intensive care settings. Next, we wanted to help clinicians in the ICU achieve a more efficient workflow. With the aScope BronchoSampler, we do both. It’s a good example of user-focused innovation.”
Part of a broader range of single-use endoscopes
In 2009, Ambu launched the world’s first single-use flexible video scope and is currently the global market leader within single-use bronchoscopes. The key benefit of Ambu’s single-use products is that patients are not exposed to cross-contamination from endoscopes that have been used on other patients.
