Picture the power of PillCam™ — the go-to for capsule endoscopy.

The PillCam™ COLON 2 system allows for direct visualization of the colon.1,2 This innovative capsule endoscopy solution provides clear images of the colon to support the detection of polyps with a minimally invasive, patient-friendly device.1,2

The second generation capsule has innovative features like adaptive frame rate technology, advanced optics, and an extra-wide angle of view.2,3,4 The PillCam™ COLON 2 system includes everything you need to perform a capsule endoscopy procedure, record images, and interpret the results.

Incomplete colonoscopies happen, there's another option.

Incomplete optical colonoscopies occur in 4–25%4 of screening patients, often requiring an out-of-practice referral for CT Colonography (CTC).

PillCam™ COLON 2 capsule provides physicians a potential solution for patients who need another option after an incomplete colonoscopy with adequate preparation, allowing a complete examination in up to 97% of patients.5

Optimize tissue coverage with innovative technology

Adaptive frame rate technology optimizes tissue coverage.

  • Capsule image rate changes from 4 fps to 35 fps when the system detects a change in the image, or when the capsule is in motion.3
  • Extra wide 172 degree angle of view (344 degrees total) allows for nearly 360 degree coverage of the colon.4
  • Capsule transmits images to a recorder that connects to a belt or sensor array the patient wears; ensuring reliable, accurate data collection.1

Full reading training is available with the technology.
