Endoscopy is a medical procedure in which an instrument (an endoscope or “endoscope”) is inserted into the body to view internal structures and organs. This procedure is used to check for symptoms and diagnose conditions and treat them. There are many different types of endoscopy, depending on the purpose of the procedure, the internal structure of the examination, and the equipment used.
In order for your endoscopes to work properly, it needs to be fitted with accessories. These accessories include bending section endoscope, bending rubber endoscope and biopsy channel endoscope. Each one of these accessories works together with another one in order to complete the unit’s capabilities. Therefore, it is important to have all of them in your facility since you never know when one will malfunction and you will need a replacement.
Endoscope insertion tube part
An endoscope insertion tube is used to insert the endoscope into the patient. It is a hollow tube that is inserted into the patient’s body, and it has a tip at one end and a handle at the other. The diameter of this device can be small or large depending on your needs, but most commonly it will measure between 11 mm – 23 mm (0.43″ – 0.91″).
This accessory helps you gain access to hard-to-reach areas without damaging them by using forceps or tweezers during surgery so that no damage occurs during surgery itself!
Bending section endoscope part
A bending section endoscope is a long flexible cable with a bendable section. The bendable section is made of special materials that can be bent repeatedly without breaking or losing its original shape, so it can be used as an instrument to inspect internal organs.
Bending rubber endoscope part
The rubber endoscope is a flexible tube that has a light and camera at the end of it. It’s used to look inside the body, so you can see what’s going on inside your body.
The rubber endoscope bends like a dream when you want to get into tight spaces or around corners. It also gives you more control over where you’re looking than other types of instruments, because they can’t bend as easily as this one does!
Biopsy channel endoscope part
- Biopsy channel endoscope
A biopsy channel endoscope is used to collect tissue samples. The biopsy channel endoscope has a small opening at the tip that is used to collect tissue samples. The forceps are inserted into the opening, and then you can use them to take out a piece from inside your body if necessary.
Endoscope light guide part
A light guide is a fiber optic device that is used to transmit light. The light guide is inserted into the endoscope and transmits the light from your endoscope’s light source to its objective lens.
Each one of the accessories work together to complete the unit’s capabilities. Therefore, it is important to have all of them in your facility since you never know when one will malfunction and you will need a replacement.
You should note that each one of the these accessories perform the tasks together in order to complete the unit’s capabilities. Therefore, it is very important to have all of them in your facility since you never know when one will malfunction and you will need a replacement, right?
You also need to keep an eye on your equipment because if there is any malfunctioning, then this could lead to serious consequences for patients who are undergoing surgery or other procedures using these types of equipment. You should consider replacing any defective parts right away so that no harm comes to anyone involved during surgery or other procedures being performed by those who use these devices daily at their jobs (or even just around town).
How to clean endoscopic accessories
Endoscopic accessories are important to the patient care of both internal medicine and surgical procedures.

- Clean with a dry cotton swab.
- Clean with water-moistened cotton swab (to remove any bacterial build up on the endoscope).
Bending rubber endoscope
- Clean the rubber endoscope with water and cleaning agent.
- Use cotton swab to clean the rubber endoscope.
- Use alcohol to clean the rubber endoscope.
- Use brush or toothbrush to clean the rubber endoscope
Biopsy channel endoscope
There are two ways to clean the biopsy channel:
- Clean it with a brush, floss, or dry paper towel. If you have access to an endoscope with a suction attachment and suction bulb, this is the best option. You can also use any other tool that will fit in the device—like a toothbrush or cotton swab (not recommended).
- Use rubbing alcohol liberally on cotton balls or gauze pads and then wipe over your device’s surface while holding them against it until they are soaked through with liquid. Then remove all excess moisture by gently wiping down both sides of each piece of equipment before moving on to another area of interest within your scope’s bodywork
Endoscope light guide
The light guide is the small piece of plastic that holds the light and magnifies it. It’s usually located at the end of an endoscope, but you can also find it on some catheters or colonoscopes.
The first step to cleaning your light path is removing any debris from inside it, using an alcohol wipe or swab (the same kind you use for cleaning lenses). Then use a cotton swab or cotton bud to clean off any remaining dirt, dust or other particles. Finally, just wash everything with warm water by hand so there’s no residue left behind.
How to clean endoscopic accessories
The following are some tips for cleaning endoscopic accessories:
- The insertion tube of an endoscope is made of glass or plastic, and it can be cleaned with water and soap. Do not put the insertion tube into a dishwasher, as this will damage it.
- The bending section should be cleaned with water and mild detergent if you want to keep its shape after use (the manufacturer will tell you how often the bending section should be washed). If you need to clean the bending section frequently because it becomes dirty easily, soak it in vinegar overnight before washing off any dirt using warm water and a soft sponge or cloth.
- When using latex gloves while handling an instrument such as an endoscope light guide or biopsy channel endoscope, they should not touch other objects because they may cause allergic reactions on your skin such as itching/burning sensation followed by redness .

bending rubber endoscope
The bending rubber endoscope is also called bending section endoscope, it is mainly used for the observation of the internal organs, such as the esophagus and stomach.
The bending rubber endoscope is a flexible tube with a diameter of 4mm to 10mm.
biopsy channel endoscope
A biopsy channel endoscope is a special type of flexible tube that can be used to remove tissue samples from inside the body. The device has been designed to be small enough to fit through small spaces, such as for instance between two teeth or beneath a fingernail. It also has a sterile channel that allows you to collect tissue samples and send them off for analysis by your doctor or lab technician.
