OptiLube Scope – sterile lubrication for endoscopy procedures

Optimum Medical offer the largest range of healthcare lubricating jelly on the market, including formats to suit a wide range of clinical procedures.

OptiLube Scope

OptiLube Scope is the newest member of the OptiLube sterile lubricating jelly family and is designed specifically for use during endoscopy procedures. The viscosity and consistency of the gel inside is formulated to effectively adhere to an endoscope, offering perfect coverage and lubrication, without compromising the clinicians view.

The 15g sachet contains the ideal amount of gel for an endoscopy procedure, preventing wastage and promoting infection control. This single-use sachet should be discarded after use, limiting the risk of patient to patient contamination.

 

Endoscopy procedures allow the clinician to examine inside the body by inserting an endoscope. An endoscope is a long, thin, flexible tube with a camera on the end. Endoscopy procedures include:

  • Colonoscopy
  • Gastroscopy
  • Sigmoidoscopy
  • Enteroscopy
  • Laparoscopy
  • Cystoscopy

The use of a sterile lubricant such as OptiLube Scope allows the clinician to pass the endoscope into the body more freely, guiding it into position, while limiting the discomfort to the patient.

In Gastroenterology we use water based lubricant gels for any procedure where we are inserting instruments into any orifice in the body. The reason for that is because it makes the procedure so much more comfortable for the patient and avoids the trauma that inserting instruments without gel might cause.” Dr John Greenway – Consultant Gastroenterologist
