RESEARCH | Comparison Study Shows aScope 5's Superior Performance

Read the comparison study that documents aScope 5 Broncho's superior levels of performance against reusable scopes for flexible bronchoscopy:

  • Expect a 17 % increase in flexion and an 83% increase in extension compared with the market leader reusable when you use aScope 5 with 2.8 mm biopsy forceps.
  • Look for a 21% increase in flexion and 61% increase in extension when you’re placing endobronchial valves in hard-to-reach segments.
  • Watch for 195 degrees of flexion and extension without tools — better than the standard reusable provides.
