MONTVALE, N.J., Sept. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — PENTAX Medical, a healthcare industry leader in diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy solutions, has announced the launch of the EB-J10 Series Bronchoscopes in the U.S., with FDA 510(k) clearance, along with a new DEFINA Video Processor.
As the newest HD solution in Pulmonology, the EB-J10 Series Bronchoscopes offer crisp, HD visualization of the bronchus, along with unmatched ergonomics, a lightweight control body, and high standards in hygiene measures. The EB-J10 Series is compatible with the DEFINA Video Processor, a small-footprint processor that is specially designed to support Pulmonology practices with advanced imaging. This combination provides exceptional HD image quality, supporting clinical outcomes across a broad spectrum of diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
The new HD EB-J10 Series Bronchoscopes have been specifically engineered with a focus on maneuverability and physician comfort during procedures, with an ergonomically positioned suction valve and angulation levers for ease of operation. Available in standard and slim sizes (EB19-J10 and EB15-J10), the EB-J10 Series Bronchoscopes offer large instrument channels and have been re-designed for easier device insertion and strong suction capability, even when the device is in place.
Additionally, the EB-J10 Series delivers sharp and crystal-clear imaging, which is supported by advanced features such as i-SCAN image technology, a post-processing image enhancement that improves the visibility of vascular structures and aids in identifying suspicious tissue within the bronchus.
In launching the new EB-J10 Bronchoscopes, PENTAX Medical is simultaneously unveiling its new Pulmonary Video Processor, the EPK-3000 DEFINA System. Developed in conjunction with the EB-J10 Series, the EPK-3000 DEFINA System offers a compact, lightweight processor with advanced features for optimal clinical support. Multi-disciplinary practices will also find seamless compatibility of the new EB-J10 Series with the OPTIVISTA plus and EPK-i5010 processors.
