US Endoscopy announces full market release of the Infinity® cytology device

Mentor, Ohio — July 16, 2013 — US Endoscopy, a world leader in endoscopy device design and manufacturing, is proud to announce the release of the Infinity® cytology device. The bristle design of the Infinity® cytology device mimics that of our Infinity® ERCP sampling device, launched in 2011. The unique configuration helps to collect quality samples during cytology procedures.

Featuring a combination of stiffer bristles to help create a defect in the tissue, and softer bristles to capture abraded material, the Infinity® cytology device allows for an abundant cellular sample to be retrieved.

“Our Customers have achieved great results with the Infinity® ERCP sampling device, so much so that they have requested a similar version for standard cytology,” says Tony Siracusa, Vice President and General Manager of US Endoscopy. “Using the same technology of the original device, we have created a premium solution to address this need - giving our Customers confidence that they are getting the best sample a brush can provide.”
