1 3-Joint Arm (without clamp) is included with the Travel Cart (M00546160). The 3-Joint Arm with Clamp (M00546070) is useful if the account does not want to purchase the Travel Cart, as it allows the account to mount the arm to another cart or table. 

2 Purchase of a minimum of two storage trays is recommended. Large storage trays (M00546060) are recommended unless account reprocesses in an Olympus™ Medivators™ Machine, into which the large storage trays will not fit. In this case, small storage trays should be ordered (M00546050). 

* For countries providing mains voltage of 120V please order M00546100 Spyglass Camera NTSC. 

** For countries providing mains voltage of 120V please order M00546260 Isolation Transformer 120V. 

3 SpyGlass Probes have been validated to 20 cycles of reprocessing without degradation of image. The true number of procedural uses, however, will depend on how the SpyGlass Probe is handled. Fiberoptics are very sensitive and need delicate handling.
