US Endoscopy announces full market release of four new VIA® procedure kits

Mentor, Ohio — March 1, 2017 — US Endoscopy, a world leader in endoscopy device design and manufacturing, is proud to expand our portfolio of VIA® procedure kits. The four new procedure kit configurations include the supplies needed to begin a GI endoscopy procedure as well as two of our newest care and cleaning products – the BioGuard® air/water & suction valves (for Olympus® GI endoscopes*) and the DuoSwift® combination squeegee brush.

The new, single-use BioGuard® air/water & suction valves offer an alternative option to the manual reprocessing of reusable valves. The DuoSwift® combination squeegee brush features a tapered nylon brush on the leading end and a series of squeegees on the trailing end, making it ideal for effective removal of liquid and debris from flexible endoscopes during cleaning. These four additional kit options join our extensive line of VIA® procedure kits, compliance kits and sponges – additional information on the full portfolio can be found at
