Ambu Launches New Single-Use Cystoscope

Ambu Inc., a rapidly growing medical device maker and pioneer of sterile, single-use endoscopes, introduced a new single-use cystoscope. The Ambu aScope 4 Cysto will give urologists immediate access to a single-use cystoscope that can be used for procedures such as bladder cancer surveillance, stent removal and other common cystoscopy procedures.

Built on more than 10 years of single-use endoscopy experience, the launch of the aScope 4 Cysto enables Ambu to enter a large new market segment. Its new cystoscope will provide urologists a way to better manage their schedules and be more productive without worrying about device deterioration and other issues such as availability, reprocessing and costly repairs.

“This is a game changer,” said Juan Jose Gonzalez, CEO of Ambu S/A, headquartered in Ballerup, Denmark. “Urologists will now have immediate access to a high-quality scope that eliminates reprocessing and repairs. A urologist opens the package and immediately has a new scope offering peak performance with full articulation. They don’t have to wait and worry whether a scope will be available or whether it will work properly.”

The aScope 4 Cysto enables organizations to reduce costs on cleaning supplies, maintenance and repairs (and the associated long-term service contracts). It improves workflow and is portable, which makes it easier for doctors to deal with in-house consult procedures.

“The Cystoscope is a multi-purpose tool used by all urologists; therefore, we are excited to introduce the aScope 4 Cysto which affords urologists excellent imaging, smooth maneuverability, and consistent performance every time,” said Jens Kemp, Ambu Inc.’s vice president of U.S. marketing. “It is a perfect solution for both flexible cystoscopies performed in the outpatient clinic as well as inpatient consults on the ward and ER.”

Ambu, already the world leader in single-use scopes, is ramping up manufacturing to provide a single-use endoscope solution in multiple flexible endoscopy segments, including Pulmonology, ENT, Urology and Gastroenterology. In conjunction with the aScope 4 Cysto and additional endoscopes coming to market, Ambu also recently introduced its aView 2 Advance, a state-of-the-art, high-definition monitor. This mobile platform can be used by pulmonologists, ENTs, urologists, thoracic surgeons, intensive care specialists and other specialists who perform millions of endoscopy procedures each year.
