EVIS X1 — Our Most Advanced Endoscopy System

EVIS X1 introduces a range of new, easy-to-use technologies that aim to revolutionise the way pulmonary disorders can be detected, characterised and sampled.

We want to support every endoscopist.
In every procedure. Every day.

BAI-MAC: The Brilliance of Even Illumination

BAI-MAC (Brightness Adjustment Imaging with Maintenance of Contrast) provides a better overview inside the anatomy and thus supports taking procedure quality and examiner confidence to the next level.


Behind the Feature: BAI-MAC

Each image is split into texture and brightness information. The texture remains unchanged, while the brightness of dark areas is automatically enhanced. Combining the original texture information with the adjusted brightness information generates a new, improved image in which close-by and distant areas are evenly illuminated — resulting in an enhanced and clear view within bronchial structures.

The New White Light

By supporting better visibility of different mucosal structures, TXI (Texture and Colour Enhancement Imaging) aims to give the examiner more confidence and to improve the quality of bronchial biopsies.


Behind the Feature: TXI

The incoming image is split, and the texture and brightness are enhanced before the separate images are merged back together. Additional colour enhancements leading to a larger bandwidth of red tones are made to more clearly define subtle differences in tissue colour. In summary, the image is brighter and more contrasted, but still comprises of natural red colours.

RDI: Designed to aid in Endoscopic Therapy

Easy detection of large vessels helps find optimal biopsy sites, with the aim of making bronchial biopsies safer and more comfortable.


Behind the Feature: RDI

RDI works by employing specific green, amber and red wave lengths. The latter two penetrate deep into the mucosa, enabling the visualisation of deep blood vessels, while the green light provides the contrast required to differentiate the vessels from the surrounding mucosa. As a result, the RDI image can improve the confidence in selecting the sampling spot by avoiding large mucosal vessels.

Insertion Tube Rotation Function

Repetitive and prolonged gestures can result in musculoskeletal complaints or even work-related injuries. To avoid such ergonomic burden as far as feasible, we have equipped our bronchoscopes with an insertion tube rotation function – the improvement of ergonomic scores.

Broad Compatibility

A Unified Platform with Broad Compatibility

One box fits all: EVIS X1 combines advanced knowledge, experience and innovation into one endoscopic system.

Additional Features and Technologies

Organic Deep Dive

With an outer diameter of only 4.9 mm, our flagship scope can access smaller bronchi, thus expanding the native HDTV vision during bronchoscopy.

High Imaging Performance

Getting the most out of every image by combining innovative technologies: WL, NBI, RDI, BAI-MAC and TXI.

Designed for Therapy

The new flagship therapeutic bronchoscope EVIS X1 offers a large 3 mm working channel for fast suction and smoke evacuation and native HDTV image quality. Combined with a broad portfolio of EndoTherapy devices, this series aims to improve therapeutic performance.

Considering Safety First

RDI acts as a confirmation tool for the physician prior to sampling. RDI enhances the visibility of deep blood vessels and thereby aims to reduce the risk of bleeding.

Supporting Ergonomics

The EVIS X1 system and its range of bronchoscopes are the ideal tools to face even the most challenging bronchoscopies. The bronchoscopes’ remote functions as well as the configuration of the system functions easily adjust to the examiner’s needs, leading to improved workflows.
