Fiber Imaging Technologies (FIT) and its German partner Schoelly Fiberoptic have received US FDA 510(k) clearance for their flexible, steerable endoscope for use during larynx and pharynx diagnostic examinations. The naso-laryngo-pharyngoscope has a working length of 300mm, a deflection range of 150 degrees up or down, a 25mm flexible tip section and a wide-angled field of view. It provides a sharp image, panoramic or detailed examination and one-handed operation during diagnostic procedures, said Worcester, Massachusetts-based FIT, a subsidiary of Luxtec, also based in Worcester.
