Video Duodenoscope


We are aware of the most recent communication made by the FDA on August 29, 2019. As always, patient safety remains our top priority.

We are collaborating with the FDA and are supportive of their recommendation of a gradual transition to duodenoscopes with disposable components.

In the interim, our current duodenoscopes can be used safely. Olympus duodenoscopes continue to be FDA-cleared devices and are an important and effective option.

Olympus recognizes the importance of proper reprocessing. In that regard we have developed and will continue to pursue a wide array of tools to achieve these goals. These include robust educational programs, training videos and onsite support and service, which are detailed and/or linked below.

FDA Duodenoscope Surveillance Sampling and Culturing Protocol

In February 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and American Society for Microbiology (ASM) Working Group on Duodenoscope Culturing published a Duodenoscope Surveillance Sampling and Culturing Protocol as a quality control measure of the adequacy of duodenoscope reprocessing. Olympus was a participant in the Working Group and the development of this Protocol. This Protocol provides recommendations for healthcare facilities that choose to implement duodenoscope microbiological surveillance sampling and culturing. Olympus intends to facilitate awareness of this Protocol by hosting educational webinars and has published a link to the Protocol on our website. As always, patient safety remains our top priority. We are committed to developing solutions for healthcare professionals that help improve clinical outcomes and enhance quality of life for patients.

The Protocol can be found here.
