Makrolon® supports high-resolution diagnostic imaging
Capsule endoscopes are taken with water, just like medicine. Therefore, the materials have to be safe and corrosion resistant, while also allowing a large filming angle for the camera. Covestro’s polycarbonate is perfectly suited to this application.
