Upcoming Event: Digestive Disease Week (DDW) 2017Chicago, IL: May 6-9, 2017 (Exhibit Dates: May 7-9, 2017)
The EndoRotor®: A Single Interventional Tool
The EndoRotor® is indicated for endoscopic resection of tissue from within the GI (gastrointestinal) tract. The tool resects and removes mucosal tissue simultaneously through a catheter inserted into the working channel of an endoscope. This interventional tool replaces multiple instruments and the time necessary for instrument exchange.
The number one issue facing resection is the lack of precision, and completion of resection.

Interscope wins CE Mark for EndoRotor endoscopic resection device
MassDevice | March 10, 2016
“Worcester, Mass.-based medical device startup Interscope said today that it won CE Mark approval in the European Union for its EndoRotor endocopic resection tool designed to remove mucosal lesions and Barrett’s esophagus.
The company said the approval was possible due to support it received from the Massachusetts Manufacturing Extension Partnership, as well as the development effort with its resource partner Boston Engineering.
“Many young companies face business needs that are often not paired well with available resources. The partnership that MassMEP and Boston Engineering presented enabled a dream to take reality in a challenging and dynamic regulatory environment,” Interscope prez Jeffery Ryan said in prepared remarks.”
Worcester startup gets European medical device approval
WB Journal | March 10, 2016
“The Worcester-based medical device company Interscope has received European Union approval to market its endoscopic device, and the U.S. Patent Office awarded the company five patents.
The EU approval of the company’s EndoRotor System, an endoscopic device that streamlines interventional gastrointestinal procedures used manage colon and esophageal cancer, is a milestone for the company. But the news isn’t just good for the company, but also for the Worcester-based Massachusetts Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MassMEP), which supported the start-up and helped it bring its products to commercialization. Boston Engineering was also involved, driving the product development and design for manufacturing (DFM) process including feasibility and analysis; industrial design; rapid prototyping; and product engineering.”
Current and Upcoming Events
Digestive Disease Week (DDW) – May 6-9, 2017
“The EndoRotor® is an exciting invention that would be easier and safer than hot biopsy or snare for flat polyp removal when piecemeal removal is necessary. This may be useful for clean up after piecemeal polypectomy or in replacement for cold snare polypectomy.”
– Norio Fukami, MD., Associate Professor University of Colorado
“The EndoRotor® is a revolutionary new tool in the endoscopists toolkit that promises to help resect difficult polyps in a safe and efficient manner.”
– Sushil Duddempudi, MD., Director of Interventional Endoscopy, The Brooklyn Hospital Center
“The EndoRotor® builds on a smart and simple idea that has been used outside the GI tract. It has great potential to simplify resection of small mucosal lesions in the upper and lower GI tract, may aid mucosal resection of large lesions, and studies on technical feasibility and safety in humans are eagerly awaited.”
