Light, High Resolution, Wireless, Good Support


App isn't as good as we'd like


You're getting an endoscope that has app compatibility, high-resolution images, and has a light that can see through dimly lit areas.

Whether you're an established healthcare professional or a casual user trying to complete at home DIY projects, you can't go wrong with an endoscope.

Before we can get onto the review, we’re going to explain a few tips to consider before buying an endoscope. By following these tips, you’ll find it easier to get an endoscope that works best for you.

Types Of Endoscope

There are two types of endoscopes that are common in clinical usage. Bronchoscopes and gastroscopes.

Bronchoscopes have a two-way tip deflection of about 100 degrees in each direction, and about 180 in one direction to allow for retroflection over a soft plate.

You’ll also require water/air and suction insufflation, a working/biopsy channel and a working length of about 80cm. The outer diameter of about 3.5-5 mm is needed for all adult cats and dogs, although a 7-8mm gastroscope can act as a bronchoscope for larger dogs.

Flexible endoscopes are further divided into video endoscopes and fiber-optic endoscopes. Video endoscopes have no eyepiece; the image is being transmitted from a CCD video chip on the tip of an insertion tube that's directly onto a monitor. This creates a superior image but at a cost, because each endoscope essentially has its own camera system.

Gastroscopes feature a four-way tip deflection (around 180 degrees in each direction), a suction/biopsy channel and a length of at least 100 cm, and automatic water/air insufflation. For larger patients, having a device that has an operating length of 130-150 cm is essential to examine the caecum and small intestine.

The insertion tube's diameter should be no longer than 10mm, or it will go through smaller patient's pylorus. A diameter below 8mm makes passing through the pylorus easier in small cats and dogs but has to be offset against the biopsy channel - which is usually around 2 mm against a 2.8mm in a larger endoscope.

New Or Secondhand

Another important factor is whether you want to buy the endoscope in new or used condition. There are a lot of veterinary specific endoscopes that appear on the market. These endoscopes are more suited to patients than most human models, having about a 130-150cm insertion tube as standard.

Also, buying new gives you a warranty for a year, and the servicing or spares aren’t a problem. Suppliers will be happy to provide training, maintenance, and care free of charge. So consider speaking to your manufacturer after buying your endoscope to see what perks they can offer you.


Secondhand endoscope equipment can be bought from hospitals, auctions, or even on eBay. However, the quality of these materials might not be up to par in comparison to buying them new. Persuade the manufacturer to allow you to use it on trial for about a month before trying to use them permanently.

Because of this, it’s safe to say that this product is backed by a reliable manufacturer who wants to provide the best endoscopes for their target market.

Moving onto the negatives. The app's functionality is the primary complaint users had with the device. The app is not user-friendly, and one consumer stated that they had to take at least 2 hours trying to remove it from their phone. Perhaps making the app more user-friendly will help improve the overall opinion of this endoscope.
