For Endoscopes, Bronchoscopes and Other
Imaging Instruments That Require Sterilization
PARABIAGO, Italy, March 1, 2006 -- The new line of three-channel color prisms from high-performance optical and optoelectronic components and systems maker Optec SpA answers the need for three-chip color cameras that can tolerate standard autoclave sterilization from manufacturers of endoscopes, bronchoscopes, remote surgical systems and other imaging instruments requiring sterilization, according to the manufacturer. These prisms are fabricated entirely of glass with dichroic coatings and cemented with a new, proprietary adhesive developed for Optec to resist autoclave temperatures and rapid temperature cycling.

The autoclavable prisms can:

  • Withstand 134 °C soaking temperature indefinitely.
  • Survive more than 1000 autoclave cycles.
  • Model for image sensor formats from ? in. to over 1 in.
  • Produce erect images on all outputs.
  • Come in standard and custom color bands.
Optec said it also provides its comprehensive sensor alignment services in support of these prisms to offer fully aligned, cemented and tested three-chip assemblies for camera manufacturers, using any CCD or CMOS sensor they prefer. Prism assemblies can also include low-expansion mounting plates and standard lens mounts.

Pricing depends on the size and level of assembly required, but is generally in the range of $500 to $5000 per unit in 100-unit quantities. Optec provides design services for custom sizes and coatings. Delivery of first samples is typically 12 weeks after receipt of order. For more information, visit:; e-mail: [email protected]
