Request Info

Even with the most advanced reprocessing, there is always a risk, however small, of patient cross-contamination. The FDA has called for an innovative solution to this issue. aScope Duodeno solves the problem.

aScope Duodeno is a sterile single-use duodenoscope for ERCP procedures. It helps you address concerns about patient cross-contamination and patient safety.
