CENTER VALLEY, Pa., June 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Olympus, a global technology leader in designing and delivering innovative solutions for medical and surgical procedures, announced today the market availability of the TJF-Q190V duodenoscope in the U.S. This newest-generation duodenoscope incorporates advancements that provide physicians with improved imaging and further enhanced therapeutic maneuverability for the treatment of patients requiring ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography), a highly challenging procedure.

The advanced visualization and more precise handling features of the duodenoscope include:

An expanded vertical field of view that is 20% greater than the previous-generation duodenoscope, allowing for improved cannulation efficiency.

Servicing GE/Siemens Nuclear Medicine equipment with OEM trained engineers

Numed, a well established company in business since 1975 provides a wide range of service options including time & material service, PM only contracts, full service contracts, labor only contracts & system relocation. Call 800 96 Numed for more info.


Incorporation of High Force Transmission technology, enabling responsive maneuverability and clear tactile feedback for precise control during the procedure.
Brighter Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) and dual guidewire locking at the distal end that enables reliable locking of 0.035-inch and 0.025-inch guidewires.
The TJF-Q190V duodenoscope also includes safety features designed to further improve the efficiency of reprocessing including a disposable distal cover and manual flushing adapter. These safety enhancements respond to the FDA's call for duodenoscopes with disposable components that improve access to the elevator mechanism for ease of reprocessing.

Innovative infection prevention features:

The sterile, clear, single-use distal cover is destroyed upon removal post-procedure, preventing the possibility of reuse.
A first-of-its-kind, proprietary distal-end flushing adaptor facilitates consistent and repeatable flushing of the distal end.
New waterproof scope connector minimizes the risk of liquid ingress.
"Olympus endoscopes have earned a well-deserved reputation as the 'gold standard' for our continued innovation in visualization and handling," said Kevin Mancini, Group Vice President for Endoscopy, Olympus America Inc. "The TJF-Q190V pushes that standard further — this newest-generation duodenoscope includes important clinical advancements while also incorporating design features for more efficient reprocessing. We are thrilled for the full market launch of this product, which signifies our commitment to keeping patients safe while also expanding the capabilities of physicians."
