BioVac® Direct Suction Device

  • Enhanced suction that enables quick, powerful evacuation when dealing with gastrointestinal (GI) bleeds, colonic decompression, poor prep or retained residual food cases
  • Offers the ability to irrigate as much as desired
  • Direct visualization to easily target cleansing and evacuation sites, allowing clinicians to focus on the patient’s diagnosis and/or treatment
  • Instrument access, enabling the clinician to utilize suction capabilities as well as provide therapeutic treatment via the accessory channel

The evacuation and debulking of blood, blood clots, semi-solid stool, and fluid has been reported to be important for an effective diagnosis. The process of clearing/cleaning the area can be difficult and time consuming, potentially increasing patient risk due to extended procedure times and sedation requirements. Utilizing the endoscopic controls for suction and irrigation is an established practice during GI endoscopy procedures and based on user familiarity and training, is typically used throughout routine procedures. However, when there are particularly challenging circumstances (i.e. blood clots or poorly prepped colons), the volume and consistency of the material to be removed results in a lengthier, arduous process.

The BioVac device has been designed to address these challenging circumstances. The BioVac device bypasses the endoscope suction valve, internal working mechanisms of the endoscope (that include flow restrictions and internal venting), and the endoscopic umbilical cord. The suction power delivered to the end of the endoscopic channel is markedly increased, improving suction efficiency and effectiveness.

How the BioVac Direct Suction Device Works

The BioVac suction device is an endoscopy fluid management system designed to address the inadequacies of current methods of evacuating blood and blood clots from the GI tract, particularly in emergency situations. Designed to suction hard-to-remove, viscous materials, the BioVac endoscopic suction device bypasses the scope control head, alleviating intraprocedural clogging of the scope which may help physicians to locate and treat the bleeding site more quickly.

BioVac Direct Suction Device

With the BioVac device, fluid is suctioned through the biopsy port,
bypassing the scope control head and enabling quicker evacuation.

Our testing has demonstrated that a 24 to 40% reduction in evacuation time when using the BioVac direct suction device vs. standard endoscope suction.

Why the BioVac Direct Suction Device?

The BioVac endoscopic suction device offers:

  • Enhanced suction that enables quick, powerful evacuation
  • The ability to irrigate as much as desired – instilling large volumes* of fluid is no longer a nuisance
  • Direct visualization to easily target cleansing and evacuation sites, allowing clinicians to focus on the patient’s diagnosis and/or treatment
  • Instrument access, enabling the clinician to utilize suction capabilities as well as provide therapeutic treatment via the accessory channel
  • Assistance in dealing with GI bleeds, colonic decompression, poor prep or retained residual food cases
  • Compatibility with Olympus, Pentax and Fujifilm endoscopes

*The size of particles and volume of liquid suctioned is limited to the endoscope’s channel size.
