Endoscopes are instruments used to visualize internal organs or to perform therapeutic procedures with use of additional accessories. Endoscopes may be rigid or flexible and include an insertion tube with built-in LED light source and camera. Disposable endoscopes are single-use and do not require sterilization or complex cleaning procedures. Disposable endoscopes minimize risk of cross-contamination as well as costs associated with cleaning, sterilizing, inventory management, downtime and instrument repair.
