EsoCheck* - Esophageal Cell Collection Device
*Lucid Diagnostics has not yet received clearance from the FDA or any other regulatory agency for EsoCheck.
A non-invasive five-minute office-based procedure to collect cells from the esophagus.
EsoCheck is a cell collection device that is designed to collect cells of a targeted region of the esophagus without the need for endoscopy. The sampled cells can then be subjected to any commercially available diagnostic test.
The Esocheck cell collection device consists of a capsule containing a small balloon with a textured surface to enhance cell collection.
The patient swallows a capsule, which is attached to the catheter, until it reaches the stomach.
The balloon is inflated to expose the ridges and then withdrawn allowing them to collect cells from the targeted area of the esophagus.
Following sample collection, EsoCheck’s Invert+Protect technology pulls the cells into the capsule where they are protected from dilution and contamination during device retrieval.
The balloon covered with sampled cells, are placed in a preservation solution for transport to a diagnostic testing facility.
