Your healthcare professional can identify potentially significant health concerns related to your oesophagus right in the office. The Cytosponge™ cell collection device collects cells from the surface of the oesophagus with one simple procedure.
This innovative solution uses a small capsule-shaped device the size of a multivitamin. A thin string is connected to a sponge inside the capsule. When you swallow it, after approximately 7 and 1/2 minutes the capsule dissolves and the sponge expands in your stomach. The string is then gently pulled to remove the sponge. As it’s removed, the sponge collects cells from the entire length of your oesophagus.
