Vision-Sciences Receives CE, Health Canada Approval to Market Video-Based Advanced Endoscopy Lines

June 4, 2008 - Vision-Sciences Inc. received approval from Underwriters Laboratories Inc. to affix the CE Mark to its new line of advanced digital, video-based flexible endoscopes, which come with an built-in light source, eliminating the need for a separate camera head, light cable and optical coupler.

Vision-Sciences also announced Health Canada approval for these scopes. With Health Canada’s approval, and the approval of applicable technical files and updated EC Certificates, Vision-Sciences is now permitted to distribute and sell its scopes throughout all EU countries and Canada.

Vision-Sciences’ new digital scopes employ proprietary EndoSheath technology. Unlike endoscopes from other manufacturers,
Vision-Sciences’ said its new video scopes do not contain difficult-to-clean operating channels. Instead, they utilize disposable, sterile Slide-On EndoSheath technology, which covers the entire endoscope. Each disposable sheath contains a sterile operative channel, which eliminates patient tissue or organic matter from coming into contact with the reusable endoscope or the next patient.
