Endoscopic Observation on Cell Level

By introducing Endocyto, Olympus has broken new ground in endoscopy. Ultra-high magnification of up to 520x enables observation at the microscopic level and helps to improve diagnostic accuracy by allowing real-time in vivo observation of cells and nuclei.

How Does Endocytoscopy Work?

  • The zoom lever moves the optical system to provide magnification of up to 520x
  • Emmited light is scattered through the mucosa and received by the objective lens
  • The stained nuclei partially absorb the scattered light and therefore create a strong contrast between the cell and the nucleus
  • Direct oberservation of cells and nuclei in real time contribute to better clinical results and streamlined treatment decisions
