Smart's G-EYE 760R colonoscope, will become available by Fujifilm Europe with its state-of-the-art ELUXEO system, as part of the newly formed strategic distribution partnership
Smart Medical Systems, a developer and manufacturer of innovative endoscopy products, announced a strategic distribution partnership empowering Fujifilm to commercialise Smart's G-EYE endoscope in Europe. The G-EYE endoscope is a conventional colonoscope onto which Smart's G-EYE balloon is integrated.
Withdrawal of the G-EYE endoscope in the colon with the balloon moderately inflated centralises the image in the colon lumen and flattens colonic folds. This effect is designed to provide enhanced visualisation of the colon and was proven in numerous clinical studies to enable substantial increase in the detection of cancerous polyps which are the precursors of colon cancer.
The flagship product to be commercialised under the new partnership is the G-EYE 760R colonoscope, integrating the G-EYE Balloon Technology with Fujifilm's ELUXEO system, which according to the companies, yields a highly optimised colonoscopy system for screening, diagnostic and therapeutic colonoscopy.
"Our new partnership with Fujifilm is a solid and strategic relation substantiating our common efforts of making the G-EYE® balloon endoscope available to more hospitals and practitioners, starting in Europe," said Gadi Terliuc, Smart's CEO. "We are excited to make the product available by Fujifilm and gain market share with a clear focus on colonoscopy."
