Ambu® aScope™ 4 Cysto:
Leading the Evolution in Single-Use Urology
Developed by the world leader in single-use endoscopy, the aScope™ 4 Cysto adds to the impressive innovation legacy of Ambu®. When combined with the portable 12.8” aView™ 2 Advance HD monitor, this flexible cystoscopy platform provides an effective solution for procedures across various clinical settings.
aScope 4 Cysto is portable and always available
From the outpatient clinic to inpatient consult procedures, you can take the lightweight single-use cystoscope and portable monitor under your arm to the Emergency Room or ICU. No locating and moving a heavy tower – and when you're done, you simply dispose of the scope.
Concerned about implementing the latest ANSI/AAMI ST91 standards?
Due to risks of associated infection outbreaks, reusable urological endoscopes are now classified as "high-risk" in the latest ANSI/AAMI standards on reprocessing flexible endoscopes. The new standards follow a recent FDA letter to healthcare providers detailing a urological endoscope recall and underscoring the proper reprocessing recommendations. Currently, reusable flexible cystoscopes are one of the most common scopes still reprocessed via manual disinfection — which the new ANSI/AAMI guidance recommends against.
Single-use cystoscopes are a novel and innovative solution not only to these more complex reprocessing standards but also the other impacts — procedural interruptions, increased downtime — seen in your hospital or outpatient clinic. Single-use cystoscopes eliminate reprocessing, increase productivity, and simplify workflow, enabling you to treat more patients.

Reusable flexible cystoscopes
Ambu aScope 4 Cysto
|Time spent scrubbing scopes after each procedure||Productive procedure days including biopsy, Botox®, stents|
|Repetitive leak testing||Satellite offices performing cystoscopy without reprocessing constraints|
|Scheduling repairs frequently||Consistent performance without deterioration over time|
|Changing/ordering noxious chemicals||Greater transparency and certainty in compliance|
Budget optimization and capital savings
Now you can eliminate all planned and unplanned expenditures such as service, repairs, scope capital/loaners, reprocessing chemicals, and shipping costs. Direct your budget to resources that directly streamline patient treatment and revenue.
The aView 2 Advance HD Monitor captures images and videos so you can easily share them with patients. The aScope 4 Cysto platform enables you to perform cystoscopies at convenient satellite clinic locations.
Duke Study Favors aScope Cysto for Standard of Care
A recent independent study conducted at Duke University Hospital found that the aScope Cysto demonstrated superior flexion and comparable optics to reusable scopes already being used in hospital urology departments. Dr. Michael Lipkin, a urologist in Durham, NC, and one of the study’s authors, set out to assess key technological capabilities of single-use and reusable cystoscopes and rendered single-use—and more specifically, the aScope Cysto—as better than the current standard of care.
