Automated Endoscope tester
The only automated testing device that ensures regulatory compliance and proves your scopes are in perfect shape, fit for purpose.
Never a broken scope in your OR again.
5x more accurate than humans
If endoscopes are inspected in the CSSD before every use, how come OR staff still has to deal with having to replace faulty units during surgery? Well as it turns out, humans might not be the best judge when it comes to the gradual degradation of endoscopes.
A study done by the Hospices Civil de Lyon found that even a trained surgeon wasn't able to pick up on 80% of the defects in rigid endoscopes.
Never a broken scope
in your OR again
With LightControl in your workflow, automated endoscope testing will make sure you will never have a broken endoscope in your OR again.
Save 3 days of
OR time yearly
Broken scopes in the OR cause delays and with them; costs. Eliminating broken scopes in the OR will save the average regional hospital 3 days of OR time per year.
Because LightControl is always connected to EndoscopeManager, you'll have a complete database of all your tests that are easy to navigate by serial number.
Lifespan by 25%
By using LightControl, you will pickup on defects much sooner resulting in smaller repairs and reduced maintenance costs, extending the lifespan of your endoscopes.
As with any process in the CSSD, we wanted the operation of LightControl to be as simple and effective as possible. Because the whole test is mostly automated, an operator can simply start the test and focus on other tasks in the meantime. Watch the video about operating LightControl to see the process in action.
Always connected to EndoscopeManager
LightControl is always connected to our cloud platform: EndoscopeManager. It stores all test results and allows you to trace your entire endoscopy inventory performance.
EndoscopeManager is the management cloud platform for your endoscopy equipment inventory. It stores all test data from your Dovideq testing systems and allows you track your equipment performance and quality.
How we test
LightControl tests your endoscopes on 6 parameters, each parameter is given a score based on the measured values referenced to the manufacturers specifications and cloud reference. The tested parameters are as followed:
Measures light transmission of the lenses (lux). The device uses a calibrated light source which passes through the endoscope to the eye piece which is connected to a camera.
Measures the color correctness of the light transmitted through the rod lenses based on the HSV model. It prevents misinterpretation of the image during surgery due to a discolored image.
Measures the quality of the fibre package of your endoscope with a photo diode sensor. It ensures optimal lighting during surgery.
Checks the focus of the endoscope based on Haar Wavelet transformation. It prevents out of focus, also known as misty, endoscopes from entering the operating room.
Checks the individual rod lenses of your endoscope for damage. LightControl takes images of the individual lenses, and uses an algorithm to detect damage.
Checks for microscopic particles in the internal sections in your endoscopes. LightControl takes images of the internals of your endoscope, and uses an algorithm to detect particles.
