Sonora Medical Systems, a supplier of after-market products, services, and test equipment to the medical imaging market, has introduced a unique new product designed for the endoscopy market, The Firefly.

The Firefly endoscope-testing device is a handheld instrument designed to measure the luminous radiation of standard medical endoscopic light sources, fiber optic cables, and endoscopes. The unit consists of an integrating sphere, light meter, and adapters to interface with endoscopic equipment common in surgical applications. Multiple patents for the Firefly are pending

The one-button operation of the Firefly provides the user with an objective and repeatable measure of the light output from each of the components in the endoscopy chain. The data can be used for predictive maintenance, product acceptance, and on-going QA programs.
