Given Imaging is a world leader in GI medical devices, offering the broadest portfolio of capsule solutions to visualize the gastrointestinal tract and, through its Sierra Scientific subsidiary, specialty GI diagnostic solutions and high-resolution manometry.
Given Imaging pioneered capsule endoscopy, which is now the gold standard for small bowel visualization, and is supported by more than 1,200 peer-reviewed publications. The PillCam Platform is the recognized leader in this field and more than one million patients worldwide have benefited from PillCam capsule endoscopy.
In 2008, Given Imaging added the Bravo pH Monitoring System to its line of GI diagnostic tools. Bravo is the only wireless (catheter-free) ambulatory pH test to help clinicians manage gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). In April, 2010, Given Imaging acquired privately-held Sierra Scientific Instruments, the world leader in high-resolution manometry products and acid reflux monitoring solutions, including pH and impedance monitoring.
Today Given Imaging continues to innovate and offer cutting-edge solutions to its customers.
