World’s Smallest Medical Camera is Less than 1 mm Wide

05 May


The world’s smallest medical camera was unveiled this week by Israel-based biotechnology firm Medigus. The camera is .99 millimeters wide and boasts a resolution of 45,000 pixels–not high resolution by any means, but a shocking degree of clarity from a camera of that size. Because the camera is disposable, it will significantly cuts down on prep time for surgeries and endoscopic procedures thanks to being pre-sterilized.

The miniature camera was developed jointly by Medigus and TowerJazz with assistance from the Israeli government’s Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor.

Each individual camera price is expected to vary between the thousands and tens of thousands depending on the exact specifications, requirements, and order quantities.
