PENTAX Medical’s new MagniView endoscopes offer a step forward in characterisation

September 26, 2013

PENTAX Medical are pleased to announce the launch of their brand new MagniView range,  combining up to x136 optical magnification with HD+ and i-scan - supporting clinicians with amazingly detailed inspection and characterisation of suspicious areas.


Optical Zoom technology with HD+ and i-scan – combine to deliver a new standard for daily gastroenterology practice





The MagniView optical zoom technology smoothly magnifies the HD+, high quality video image up to 136 times to support detailed observation of surface structure and microvasculature to enable meticulous inspection of possible lesions. 

Maintaining a consistently clear zoom image, a rubber distal hood enables the clinician to easily maintain the optimal distance from the distal end to the mucosal surface. Inbuilt water jet technology also ensures clear imaging during procedures.

The new MagniView range features the EG-2990Zi Gastroscope and the EC-3890Zi Colonoscope which are available in a choice of three working lengths; 1300mm/1500mm/1700mm.

Designed for routine use as fully functional endoscopes with optical magnification capabilities, the MagniView range have the same working channel and outer diameter as conventional endoscopes. With easy positioning and magnification control, advanced ergonomics, maximised tip deflection and graduated flexibility of the insertion tube, the zoom scopes increase both patient and clinician comfort.

Consultant Gastroenterologist at University College Hospital, London, Dr Rehan Haidry commented on his use of the new PENTAX MagniView Gastroscope. "PENTAX has done very well to add another fantastic scope to its already impressive armoury. The new zoom scope utilises a soft cap to enhance the close focus and maintain clarity across the various i-scan modes.”

“In the context of Barrett's related neoplasia the zoom scope has been outstanding at demonstrating irregular mucosal and vascular patterns consistent with dysplasia. This not only helps to target sampling of these sites, but also to target endotherapy to these areas. I am looking forward to using it further over the coming months," concluded Dr Haidry.
