Ambu created GI Endoscopy to explore topics in gastroenterology and the work being performed in hospitals and clinics. The content — including articles, videos and graphics — goes beyond the use of duodenoscopes, gastroscopes and colonoscopes to cover best practices in workflow improvements, cost-effectiveness considerations, and preventing cross-contamination. And it’s geared to a wide-ranging audience including physicians, nurses, infection-control specialists and purchasing executives.
Societal guidelines have undergone significant updates in the decade, and the guidelines and technology for performing flexible endoscopy will undergo many changes in the coming years. We strive to make this website a valuable resource as you navigate this changing gastroenterology landscape.
Unleashing the power of single-use devices
Since 1937, breakthrough ideas have fueled Ambu’s work bringing efficient healthcare solutions to life. Our innovations range from early inventions like the Ambu Bag™ resuscitator and the legendary BlueSensor™ electrodes to our newest landmark solutions like the aScope™ endoscope — the world’s first single-use flexible video scope. Today, millions of patients and healthcare professionals worldwide depend on the functionality and performance of Ambu products.
In 2020, Ambu brought a sterile, single-use duodenoscope to the U.S. GI community, receiving regulatory clearance in July 2020 for the Ambu® aScope™ Duodeno. We will follow up that product launch with a sterile, single-use gastroscope and colonoscope, giving Ambu a suite of products that reduce the risk of cross-contamination in a cost-effective way.
