Slim DEC™ Duodenoscope – A Slimmer ERCP Solution

Disposable Elevator Cap ("DEC™")

The elevator area of a duodenoscope is one of the most difficult components to clean. The development of the disposable elevator cap ("DEC™") design makes hygiene in this area a lot easier by integrating the elevator into the disposable distal end cap of the duodenoscope.

Benefits of the Slim DEC™ Duodenoscope

Consistent Therapeutic Performance

A consistent therapeutic performance is supported by a combination of a narrow insertion tube and a narrow rigid distal width while maintaining a working channel suitably sized to support the delivery of therapeutic intervention.

Outstanding Visualisation

The Slim DEC™ Duodenoscope delivers outstanding visualisation supported by a combination of HD imaging, a 15° retroflexed view, and a more flexible insertion tube for proper positioning to cannulate during ERCP in narrow anatomies.

Reduced Risk of Cross-Contamination

The Disposable Elevator Cap (DEC™) ensures a reduced risk of  cross-contamination through better surface access for cleaning of  the distal end, without compromising the therapeutic performance.
