BF-UC180F Bronchofibervideoscope

Setting a new standard for diagnosis and staging in the lung. Innovative scope design helps you take advantage of superior ultrasound imaging for EBUS-TBNA.

Compatible with Olympus' popular EU-ME1 integrated ultrasound processor as well as Aloka's Industry-leading ProSound Alpha 10 and ProSound Alpha 7, this new EBUS-TBNA system makes biopsies safer and more accurate than conventional blind TBNA, and offers an alternative to mediastinoscopy.
The BF-UC180F clearIy visualises the dedicated echogenic aspiration needle via ultrasound imaging. With the introduction of this versatile EBUS-TBNA system, Olympus is making an important contribution to improved staging and diagnosis of lung cancer.

  • Channel diameter enlarged to 2.2 mm for improved suction capability and device insertion.
  • Wider scanning and higher resolution image, plus higher sensitivity Doppler function available with EU-ME1 and Aloka processors.
  • Detachable cable simplifies cleaning and facilitates easier placement into an automatic endoscope reprocessor.
  • Innovative "hybrid" design combines video and fiberoptic technologies in a single scope, offering the same functionality as videosoopes yet with a slim insertion tube diameter of only 6.3 mm*, even with an incorporated ultrasound transducer.
  • Distal tip diameter measures 6.9 mm.
