Given Imaging is set to launch its third PillCam product after receiving the CE Mark to market the PillCam COLON in the European Union. The Yokneam-based company said over the weekend it would unveil the product to physicians at the United European Gastroenterology Week in Berlin this week and that it expects to file for US FDA clearance by year end.
The capsule was developed as a diagnostic test to visualize the colon and comes equipped with tiny cameras at each end that capture four images a second for up to 10 hours. Each camera, Given said, contains automatic lighting control and captures more than twice the coverage area and depth of field of its flagship PillCam SB capsule which is used to diagnose diseases in the small intestine.
