Ablation Systems

Predictability. Specificity.
Large ablation zones.

Successful management of nonresectable liver tumors is about more than what you remove — it’s about what you leave behind, too. 

The Emprint™ ablation system enables a minimally invasive procedure that provides immediate, repeatable results1 and can help lower the chance of recurrence.2

This procedure can also be combined with additional therapies and help you give your patients a more comprehensive treatment.3

Capsule Endoscopy

A complete suite of capsule endoscopy solutions within a single platform

The PillCam™ capsule endoscopy platform uses innovative visualization technology to produce clear images of the small bowel and colon. This minimally invasive platform allows physicians to detect GI abnormalities, monitor disease activity, and assess treatment efficacy.4

Therapeutic Endoscopy

Detect the undetected

Nexpowder™* Endoscopic Hemostasis System

The Nexpowder™* endoscopic hemostasis system is a powder that can be sprayed to an ulcer site, applying an endoscopic hemostatic agent. As a hydrophilic biocompatible adhesive material, it is composed of succinic anhydride (ε-poly-(L-lysine)) and oxidized dextran.

ProdiGITM Wire, Knife and Magnet

The ProdiGI™ traction wire has been purpose-built for ease-of-use — to deliver uninterrupted visualization of the dissection plane — bringing clarity and confidence to your ESD procedures.5 It allows you to hold tissue during dissection procedures and expose the dissection plane.

Gastrointestinal Artificial Intelligence

Detect the undetected

The GI Genius™ intelligent endoscopy module offers a transformative solution — powered by artificial intelligence — to address the challenges of detecting colorectal cancer, early.

It works as an adjunct to the gastroenterologist during a colonoscopy with the purpose of highlighting regions with visual characteristics consistent with different types of mucosal abnormalities, such as colorectal polyps of all shapes, sizes, and morphology.6

Computer-aided detection, analysis & prediction

By harnessing deep learning algorithms and real-time data, GI Genius™ supports physicians to detect and estimate possible histology of colorectal polyps through enhanced visualization in White Light colonoscopy.7,8

Endoscopic Ultrasound

Improving Diagnosis.
Improving Patient Care.

The Beacon™ EUS delivery system features interchangeable FNA and FNB needles designed to support consistent and predictable acquisition of tissue samples with intact cellular architecture.9,10

The components of this innovative EUS delivery system are interchangeable, supporting greater efficiency,11 while built-in safety features help protect healthcare staff from needle stick injury. And with advanced needles that help improve biopsy yield10,11, interventional endoscopists and pathologists can potentially increase diagnostic rates.9,11

Gastrointestinal RF Ablation Systems

The power to make a difference

The Barrx™ system is designed to remove the Barrett's epithelium in a short, well-tolerated endoscopic procedure and offers an alternative to "watchful waiting" for patients with intestinal metaplasia, low-grade, and high-grade dysplasia.

With focal and circumferential catheters, plus advanced features designed to increase procedural efficiency, these innovations provide the flexibility needed to meet the unique needs of each patient.

Motility Testing

A full range of motility testing solutions

Support early detection of gastroenterologist diseases and functional disorders with a complete portfolio of motility testing products. 

We offer esophageal manometry, anorectal manometry, and capsule-based motility testing, enabling you to do full evaluations of GI tract motor function to understand the root cause of GI functional disorders.12,13,14,15

Reflux Testing

Comprehensive reflux testing solutions

We offer innovative reflux testing solutions that allow you to better understand acid reflux symptoms, assess PPI efficacy and develop the best care plans for patients with GERD.16,17

Our reflux testing products feature both catheter-based and capsule-based technologies, giving physicians the flexibility to offer solutions that best meet their patients' needs. With pH and impedance measurement, these products provide a complete range of reflux assessment capabilities, helping you formulate appropriate treatment plans for your patients.17
