In flexoscopes, or flexible endoscopes, the image is transmitted from the distal to the proximal end through an optical fiber bundle.
As their name suggests, flexoscopes are extremely flexible. They enable access to convoluted and irregularly shaped spaces, channels, or pipes that would otherwise be invisible to the human eye, and they are easy to use.
KARL STORZ flexoscopes come in diameters between 0.5 mm and 9 mm and feature a robust, smooth outer shell made of plastic or a metal-tungsten braiding. Two-way or four-way defl ection translates into a large fi eld of view and ensures ease of use and efficiency when used in combination with a kink protector and an integrated lock. When combined with a powerful external light source, our high quality optical system offers you an outstanding, sharp image that allows you to reliably assess the object to be inspected.
