BP Endo

Life Sciences

BP Endo’s one-of-a-kind Insufflation Retention Device (IRD) is an add-on device that solves the problem of air or fluid incontinence in colonoscopies by creating a seal in the rectum while allowing full freedom of movement for the endoscope.

Why we invested:


Market Need

A colonoscopy is an important procedure for screening for colon cancer, removing polyps, and controlling lower gastrointestinal bleeding. If air or fluid incontinence occurs during the procedure, the exam cannot be performed successfully. This is a regularly occurring problem, as an OU Medical School study recorded air incontinence occurring 24% of the time. This problem is estimated to cost the average gastroenterologist approximately $15,000 annually.


Superior Technology

BP Endo’s IRD uniquely ensures full visualization, essentially making an incompetent anal sphincter competent. This unprecedented technology has FDA 510(k) clearance and two patents.
