Frost & Sullivan Applauds Check-Cap for Pioneering a Non-invasive, Prep-Free Wireless Capsule Endoscope
Date:11/11/2013

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the wireless capsule endoscopes market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Check-Cap Ltd. with the 2013 European Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation Leadership.

Check-Cap's capsule device, also named Check-Cap, is based on a novel imaging approach that enables the 3D virtual reconstruction of the colon, eliminating the need for bowel preparation. The imaging capsule, which resembles a vitamin capsule in its size and shape, is easy to swallow and is designed to wirelessly transmit data to a small receiver that is no bigger than a disposable patch on the patient back.

Wireless capsules need to satisfy the requirement of the two key stakeholders in the market the patients and the physicians. From the perspective of the patient, the capsule has to do away with, or at least significantly ease the most bothersome aspect of the current screening procedure, namely, bowel preparation. They also have to be small enough for easy oral administration and unhindered mobility through the gastrointestinal track. From the physician's perspective, it should provide 360-degree visualization and cover the colon comprehensively in both quality and quantity. Check-Cap checks both these boxes and is peerless in its efficiency.

"While competing products strive for a 360-degree view of the colon by adopting multiple cameras and either fall short or risk image overlaps and redundancy, Check-Cap has adopted an X-ray platform that not only enables a 360-degree view, but also obtains information that is 'hidden' or inaccessible to other products that employ rays of visible light," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Bhargav Rajan.

Although wireless capsule endoscopes are more comfortable than traditional endoscopes for the patient, they suffer from incomplete imaging of the colon due to lack of mane
