Executive Summary

The US FDA has issued a safety communication to hospitals and providers to transition from using fixed endcap duodenoscopes to ones where the cap can be switched out. The directive from the agency is good news for Boston Scientific, which makes a disposable duodenoscope called Exalt-D that is close to being approved. See what Wells Fargo analyst Larry Bieglesen said about it here.

“Exalt-D is a single-use duodenoscope designed to eliminate the possibility of getting infection with a contaminated reusable scope. Given [the] FDA communication, we would expect approval of Exalt-D shortly.” – Larry Bieglesen, analyst, Wells Fargo
