Three ways aScope 4 Cysto helps you increase productivity
The single-use aScope 4 Cysto helps you simplify your clinical workflow, free up resources and treat more patients because you:
Always have a new, sterile cystoscope ready to use straight from the pack
Never have to reschedule procedures due to endoscopes being cleaned or out for repair
Cut the time and costs associated with reprocessing
A straightforward procedure with the aScope 4 Cysto solution
The single-use aScope 4 Cysto solution is easy to take with you – wherever and whenever you need it. The cystoscope and Ambu® aView™ 2 Advance monitor are lightweight, portable and simple to set up. You can place the HD monitor in a convenient position, take images and videos, and go over the results later with the patient or colleagues.
When you combine the new single-use Ambu® aScope™ 4 Cysto with the portable 12.8” HD Ambu® aView™ 2 Advance monitor, you get clear and sharp imaging every time. Because the cystoscope is single-use, there is no wear and no degradation of image quality.
The First UK experience with single-use disposable flexible cystoscopes
An in-depth cost analysis, service delivery and patient satisfaction rate with the Ambu® aScope™ 4 Cysto
A new study by Wong A et al. (2021) concluded that the Ambu® aScope™ 4 Cysto was cost saving by £31.10 within this department and was preferred by 95% of patients who took part in the study.
About the article
- Published in Journal of Endoluminal Endourology
- The study compared using Ambu® aScope™ 4 Cysto to perform flexible cystoscopies in 20 patients prospectively against traditional flexible cystoscopes in 20 patients retrospectively
- Preference towards the single-use cystoscope may have been due to the portability, simple set up and excellent image quality allowing for use in inpatients, outpatients and within an emergency setting.

What do urologists think of aScope™ 4 Cysto?
Initial physician evaluations highly positive
aScopeTM 4 Cysto was adopted by over 100 hospitals across the US in less than 150 days since its release in March. We asked 31 urologists at 12 of those sites to evaluate our new single-use cystoscope after performing procedures.
This report summarizes clinicians’ highly positive evaluations of:
- Overall scope and monitor performance
- Image quality
- Bending capability
The rapid acceptance and promising initial clinical evaluations suggest significant benefits for adopters of this single-use cystoscopy solution.
FDA news release on infections associated with reusable urological endoscopes
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is investigating numerous medical device reports (MDRs) describing patient infections and other possible contamination issues possibly associated with reprocessed urological endoscopes.
Scientific conference posters
These non-peer reviewed posters, created by Ambu and distributed at EUGA 2020, offer a quick overview of urologists concerns when it comes to reusable cystoscopes, and how they feel about the single-use alternative.
The first three posters above are based on a survey conducted among 105 urologists divided evenly in the UK, Germany and France. Poster 4 surveyed 53 Japanese urologists. They were a part of the program at EUGA 2020 and UAA 2020.
Focus on single-use endoscopy results in excellence
In 2009, Ambu launched the world’s first single-use flexible bronchoscope, Ambu® aScope™, and today, over 600,000 of our single-use endoscopes are used in more than 3,500 hospitals. The aScope 4 Cysto builds on this decade of experience and know-how.
Our advanced production facilities have highly skilled staff that know how to manufacture quality single-use endoscopes, and approximately 20 percent of our revenue from single-use endoscopes is fed back into R&D.
We have a strong focus on single-use innovation and collaborate closely with healthcare professionals, who advise us and co-develop our products to ensure consistent innovation quality.
