About the Technology

The Third Eye Retroscope is designed to complement, not to replace, standard colonoscopes. Therefore it does not alter existing procedural infrastructure or referral patterns, and does not require major outlay from medical facilities for capital equipment. The device can be used with most of the adult colonoscopes currently produced by the leading manufacturers, as well as some pediatric colonoscopes.

The "chip-on-catheter" platform for the Third Eye Retroscope is also the basis for a number of other products that Avantis is developing for use in gastroenterology, and in other medical and surgical specialties. Like the Third Eye Retroscope, most of these innovative devices are designed to be disposable, which eliminates the need for sterilization and the risk of contamination.
