Aquilant launches bronchoscopy range

Published: 16-Aug-2016

New solution to be showcased at ERS International Congress

Aquilant Endoscopy is showcasing the latest bronchoscopy technology from Fujifilm at this year's ERS International Congress, to be held between 3-7 September at London's ExCel.

Including the new series of 580 bronchoscopes, and the new mini probe system SP-900, Aquilant alongside Fujifilm will be providing visitors with the latest techniques in bronchoscopy navigation.

Fujifilm will also be running a practical hands-on workshop entitled EBUS state-of-the-art training interventional pulmonology, which will take place at the ICC Capital Suite 16 on Monday, 5 September from 1.15-2.30pm.

Matt Aronow, marketing manager for Aquilant Endoscopy, said: "Clinicians are consistently reviewing their techniques and skills to ensure that they are using the technology available to them in the most-effective way to improve patient outcomes.

At this year's ERS Congress, visitors will be able to see the latest products and innovations from Fujifilm as well as take part in practical hands-on workshops that will include EBUS-TBNA and mini probe biopsy using models."

The new 580 series HD Bronchoscopy Range includes the EB-580S, which utilises a high-resolution 580 Super CCD image sensor to provide respiratory physicians with unsurpassed image quality, delivering a sophisticated tool that can assist with advanced diagnosis and characterisation.

In addition, the EB-580S has improved handling characteristics, providing the user with smooth insertion and increased suction power, helping to maintain a clear view especially during bleeding.

Durability has also been improved with a stronger channel design facilitating instrument use. Excellent angulation capability, which can reach an up angle of 210˚, improves the bronchoscope's manoeuvrability, especially to the upper lobe bronchus.

The new SP-900 mini probe system enables doctors to complete an endoscopic ultrasound of the surrounding tissue within any areas of particular interest. Delving deeper into the tissue for a fuller analysis, the new mini probe system is invaluable when the user is performing a biopsy in more difficult to access areas.

Aronow said: "The new bronchoscopy range is a really-significant step forward and provides clinicians with a sophisticated tool-set that will ultimately help them to improve patient outcomes."
