Xenocor, Shop SLC Member and Utah-based medical device company, has received clearance from the FDA for their enhanced version of their Saberscope. The Saberscope is the world’s first true fog free, HD, single-use, articulating laparoscope.
This game changing medical device will increase patient safety during operations, reduce costs and reduce the overall hassles associated with things like smoke, steam, fog, waste and overall workflow complexity while using laparoscopes in the field.
Approval by the FDA included testimonies from users all over the country including Jarrod Kaufman, a General Surgeon from Brick, New Jersey that shared, “The addition of the auto-focus capability will truly enhance the likelihood of swift adoption in the surgical marketplace. This would especially be true in procedures & specialties that target multiple quadrants of the abdomen due to requirements for refocusing of the image.”
Before the Saberscope, procedures requiring a laparoscope necessitated expensive equipment that was cumbersome to use and introduced unnecessary risk to the equation. Requirements to clean the scopes between uses created complex workflows with room for error and increased costs.
“The Saberscope was already the most feature-rich laparoscope approved by the FDA, so this addition pushes us further ahead in the value that we can deliver to surgeons and hospitals,” said Tony Watson, Chief Operating Officer.
