Given Imaging is developing a third-generation version of its ingestable video capsule, PillCam SB, for imaging the small bowel. The modified device, which is being developed in collaboration with Boise, Idaho-based Micron Technology and Ottawa, Canada firm Zarlink Semiconductor, is expected to become commercially available in 2006. It features an improved frame rate of four frames per second - the previous model's rate was two frames per second - and an increased operational time of nine hours - up from eight hours. PillCam SB is used for the direct visualisation of the small intestine and is approved for sale in more than 50 countries worldwide. Yoqneam, Israel-based Given said it is also conducting clinical trials of its PillCam COLON device.
