Ambu announced today that it will launch its Ambu aView 2 Advance display unit for use with endoscopes in Europe and the U.S.
Denmark-based Ambu received CE Mark and FDA approval to market its portable, full-HD unit that combines with single-use endoscopes across multiple clinical areas.
The Ambu aView 2 Advance connects with Ambu’s aScope family of single-use scopes to transmit a live image from inside the human body. The image displays within seconds of powering on the monitor and offers image capture and recording capability, according to a news release.
It can also be used with Ambu’s bronchoscope, rhinolaryngoscope or cystoscope while offering the option to transfer recorded data to the hospital’s electronic health records.
“We have pioneered single-use endoscopy for more than ten years, and we now bring our portfolio to a new level of sophistication,” Ambu CEO Juan Jose Gonzalez said in the release. “Image quality is critical for healthcare providers and patient diagnosis, and we can now offer a display unit that was not possible with a single-use endoscope just a few years ago. I believe we are raising the bar on innovative technology for hospitals and clinics.”
“Its mobile platform not only works well within the ICU, but specialists from other areas can use it to perform everything from cystoscopies to flexible laryngoscopies to bronchoscopies,” added Ambu USA VP of marketing Jens Kemp. “It will increase workflow, efficiency and enable clinicians to address patients quickly.”
