BF-3C160 Bronchovideoscope

The world’s first video bronchoscope to break the 4 mm barrier. Breakthrough design offers a super-slim 3.8 mm insertion tube diameter with a 1.2 mm inner channel diameter.

Measuring a mere 3.8 mm across at the distal end of the insertion tube, the BF-3C160 is the first videoscope that truly lives up to the term “ultra-slim.” Incorporating the smallest CCD ever developed for endoscopic applications, this remarkably narrow scope lets you go even deeper into the bronchi than you could with a standard scope. Thanks to Olympus’s advanced CCD miniaturisation technology, you also get superb video image quality. We’ve even managed to make enough room to incorporate a 1.2 mm channel for biopsy and suction capability.

  • Ultra-narrow 3.8 mm diameter insertion tube - the slimmest ever in a videoscope.
  • Efficient biopsy and suction capability produced by a 1.2 mm channel.
  • Crystal-clear, high-resolution video images.
  • Dual-purpose design increases endoscopy suite efficiency.
  • Efficient, ergonomic design is easy to use and maintain.
  • Ergonomically designed control section and switch layout.
  • Reprocessing capability for reliability you can count on.
  • Standardised accessories can be used with all scopes.
