EndoFresh’s Disposable Digestive Endoscopy System gets an FDA nod

The US Food and Drug Administration has finally produced a green flag to EndoFresh’s novel Disposable Digestive Endoscopy System following years of reports of persistent cross-contamination issues transmitted in patients by some of the difficult-to-clean endoscopy devices.

EndoFresh Digestive Endoscopy System has been designed for treatment and diagnostic purposes of upper and lower GI tracts. Besides, it has been deemed ideal for use in various outpatient and inpatient settings like hospitals, ERs, endoscopy centers, ICUs, urgent care centers, and others.

Reports suggest that EndoFresh’s latest Disposable Digestive Endoscopy System features a camera system with innovative all-in-one design, disposable colonoscope and disposable upper GI endoscope, which are to be used together with the medical display and other peripheral devices.

This combined arrangement would allow physicians and other medical practitioners to diagnose, visualize, and operate GI endoscopy.

It has been reported that the firm’s industry-pioneering technology addresses the conventional challenges of the expanding endoscopy procedures, while simultaneously ensuring that its single-use devices are cost-effective, accessible, and risk-controllable.

While speaking on the groundbreaking innovation, Dr. Lee, CEO of EndoFresh, stated that with a novel system like this, healthcare professionals could now offer patients a more secure experience, which is available anytime and anywhere.

Lee further mentioned that a plus point of having such device is that it helps prevent the risk of cross-infection and minimize the workload in preoperative screening as well as postoperative disinfection.

Credible reports cite that the risk factor associated with disposable endoscope is relatively much lower compared to high acquisition and repair expenses and improper high-level disinfection practices of reusable endoscope.

Evidently, EndoFresh differentiates its devices from conventional preprocessing and time-consuming maintenance solutions, while also complying to stringent first-class quality and reliability protocols.

The company is also well known for adapting to the fast-evolving market demands for innovation and processing high potential to produce actual benefits in the years ahead.
