The Right Scope, for the Right
Patient, in the Right Situation.
Introducing diagnostic and therapeutic tools designed to offer pulmonologists the option to choose.
The Right Scope

A hybrid approach lets you choose from a wide variety of reusable and single-use scopes for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

The Right Patient

Every patient is different, and every treatment decision is based on unique clinical scenarios that demand options.

The Right Situation

From the bronchoscopy lab to the ICU, we recognize the need for options to deliver optimal respiratory care to your patients.

We heard your concerns.

The single-use bronchoscope market has been growing steadily, with COVID-19 accelerating adoption.1 In 2021 U.S. regulatory guidance was issued to healthcare facilities on single-use bronchoscopes.2 We saw five years of market growth occur in just two years.3

How will single-use bronchoscopes perform?

Customers don’t want to sacrifice the attributes of reusable bronchoscopes.

What are the cost implications?

Customers question if budgets could accommodate an exclusive single-use inventory.

What is the potential environmental impact?

Customers are faced with justifying the sustainability of an all single-use bronchoscope inventory.

A solution with common ground.

Olympus® Hybrid Bronchoscopy Solution is a complementary portfolio of reusable and single-use flexible bronchoscopes that can tackle almost any bronchoscopy procedure in most hospital settings. Together we can help you with a portfolio that meets your budget constraints and sustainability concerns.

It’s time to hybridize.
