Olympus proudly allocates up to 15% of our annual global R&D resources to focus on improving the safety of our endoscopes. To provide a better understanding of market needs and the ability to explore solutions that serve those markets, we also established comprehensive project teams sourced from Olympus departments and subsidiaries around the world. These resources are used internally and externally to improve and validate the capability of the tools in your hands.
As we work to stay on the leading edge of endoscopic technology, Olympus partners with educational institutions, research facilities, and government organizations around the world, taking full advantage of today’s newest advances in imaging, analysis, maintenance and reprocessing. We also continue to make substantial investments in our R&D resources, ensuring and enhancing the performance and safety of all products and processes within the endoscopy suite.
