This article introduces the news that Olympus and Sony are collaborating on endoscope development.


Olympus has 70% of the world market share in gastrointestinal and respiratory endoscopes, while Sony is highly regarded for its imaging technology 


The two companies have already achieved results in the joint development of surgical endoscopes, and this expanded collaboration is aimed at the development of next-generation endoscope systems.


This collaboration will be of great benefit to the medical field. This is because endoscopes are indispensable medical devices for surgery and diagnosis, and the higher resolution and stability of endoscopes will enable more accurate and safer medical care.



This is a field in which Japan can lead the world, so we have high expectations. Go Olympus! Go Sony!

We support Japanese manufacturing.
