|Given Imaging, Ltd. was incorporated under the laws of the State of Israel on January 4, 1998. The Company develops, manufactures and markets diagnostic products for the visualization and detection of disorders of the gastrointestinal tract. The Company pioneered capsule endoscopy, a proprietary approach to visual examination of the gastrointestinal tract through the use of a miniaturized video camera contained in an ingestible disposable capsule. The principal product, which incorporates the core technology, is thePillCam platform, a proprietary wireless imaging system that uses disposable video capsules. The PillCam capsules can be easily ingested by patients and move naturally through the gastrointestinal tract without discomfort while wirelessly transmitting to a portable recorder, enabling the gastroenterologist to view high quality video, images and data on a computer workstation, utilizing its proprietary RAPID software. Since November 2004, the Company has also marketed and sold the PillCam ESO capsule for visualizing the esophagus. After receiving the first CE mark in 2007, the Company began selling the first generation of PillCam COLON capsule in Europe. In 2010, the Company began limited marketing and sales of second-generation PillCam COLON capsule in European countries, following receipt of the CE mark for this capsule in late 2009. The Company has also developed the agile patency capsule and system, which is a dissolvable capsule that enables physicians to determine whether there are obstructions or strictures in the gastrointestinal tract that may prevent passage of its PillCam SB capsule.|
