Vision-Sciences has received 510(k) clearance from the FDA to market its digital, video-based flexible Cystoscope, the CST-5000, for imaging the internal structures of the bladder.

The Cystoscope is used in conjunction with a built-in light source, eliminating the need for a separate camera head, light guide cable and optical coupler, according to Orangeburg, N.Y.-based company.

The CST-5000 is the third in the series of uniquely advanced digital endoscopy platforms that use the company's disposable, sterile Slide-On EndoSheath technology to eliminate the need for elaborate high-level disinfection between procedures, leading to rapid equipment turnover, limiting capital investment for additional scope inventory, reducing staff exposure to toxic chemicals, and dramatically lowering repair and maintenance costs, according to Vision-Sciences.
