The KARL STORZ SILVER SCOPE® series offers three variants that covers the most common applications in the upper gastrointestinal tract:
Firstly, the standard gastroscope for the daily routine; secondly, the medium gastroscope with a greatly reduced outer diameter for routine examinations as well as stenoses and pediatric use; thirdly, an interventional dual-channel gastroscope for more demanding interventions, heavy bleeding and emergency gastroscopy. 
The innovative duodenoscope has been enhanced with regard to hygiene aspects and now includes a sterile single-use Albarran module (HYDOME® system). 
In the field of colonoscopy, KARL STORZ offers a selection of lengths – from the 40 cm rectoscope to the sigmoidoscope and standard lengths. The graduated rigidity and progressive insertion characteristics of the colonoscope insertion tube ensure optimal advancement. 

All endoscopes of the SILVER SCOPE® series offer the following characteristics:

  • Three innovative visualization technologies for easy tissue differentiation:

    – CLARA: Homogeneous illumination
    – CHROMA: Contrast enhancement
    – SPECTRA*: Spectral color shift and color exchange

  • Homogeneous image brightness
  • LED illumination and air or CO2 insufflation included with the CO2MBI® LED light source
  • Nine functions on three individually programmable function keys
  • Deflection up to 210° with a small bending radius for gastroscopes as well as colonoscopes
  • Full upward and downward compatibility with KARL STORZ video processors  and light sources
  • The modular system of the IMAGE1 S™ platform allows interdisciplinary work

* SPECTRA: Not for sale in the U.S.

  • Up to 210° inversion improves visualization and, consequently, diagnostic and therapeutic options thanks to forward and retrograde viewing
  • Field of application especially suited for surgical conditions and procedures in the rectal area
  • Fatigue-free work thanks to ergonomically shaped control unit
  • Possibility to combine rigid and flexible endoscopy thanks to modular IMAGE1 S™ camera platform

IMAGE1 S™ – As Individual as your Requirements

IMAGE1 S™ is the core technology of the KARL STORZ gastroenterology system: Efficient, innovative and brilliant. Through color adjustments, the image quality was tailored to the special needs in gastroenterology. Combining the camera and light source via the KARL STORZ Communication Bus (SCB) guarantees consistent, optimal illumination of both deep spaces and the near range.

  • Modular system for both flexible and rigid endoscopy
  • Three innovative visualization technologies for easy tissue differentiation: CLARA, CHROMA and SPECTRA*
  • Side-by-side view allows real-time comparison of the white light image and visualization modes
  • Automatic light source control
  • Multiple source management: Simultaneous control, display, documentation of image information from two connected image sources (e.g., for hybrid interventions)

* SPECTRA: Not for sale in the U.S.

CO2mbi® LED Cold Light Fountain
