CapsoCam Plus Accessories
CapsoRetrieve® is a sanitary, single-use kit provided to patients for the collection, storage and transportation of the CapsoCam Plus capsule. CapsoRetrieve provides all the tools necessary for the patient to safely and easily recover the capsule – in just a few simple steps – and return it to the clinic.
The CapsoRetrieve kit includes the following components:
- Collection pan
- Magnetic wand
- Retrieval vial
- Rinse cup
How It Works
CapsoRetrieve Collection Pan
The patient places the retrieval pan on back half of the toilet and lowers the seat on top of it. The patient defecates into the pan until the capsule is excreted.
Once the capsule is in the pan, the patient rinses the capsule by filling the plastic rinse cup with warm water and pouring it over the capsule while it is still in the collection pan.
CapsoRetrieve Magnetic Retrieval Wand
The wand is used to safely and easily remove the capsule from the pan without touching the capsule.
The patient simply grasps the wand by the blue handle and uses the magnetic tip to pick up the capsule.
The CapsoRetrieve Vial
After collecting the capsule with the retrieval wand, the capsule should immediately be placed into the vial. The patient closes the lid on top of the capsule in order to release it from the wand.
After the process is complete, the pan and wand are placed into the plastic bag and properly disposed. The patient should follow the physician’s instructions for returning the vial to the clinic or using a pre-paid mailer that is provided for the return of the capsule and vial.
Quick Access for Local Data Uploading and Rapid Results
Unlike end-facing capsule endoscopy systems, the CapsoCam Plus® System doesn’t use uncomfortable external patient equipment. All of the data is stored in an on-board flash memory system.
To extract the in vivo images and other data collected during the examination, users simply place the capsule into the CapsoAccess system and click download.
The data from the capsule is then easily accessed using CapsoView® software, which is available for both Microsoft Windows and Mac OSX operating systems.
“We have had no issues with the retrieval of the capsule. No complaints, no lost capsules. It has been quite easy for all patients, even the elderly.”
