What Providers are Saying
I started using ANOSPEC about 3 years ago. They make our examination of patients more mobile since you don’t need to worry about the usual light. I use them to do RBL’s after colonoscopy. I like the disposability."

Associate Professor of Surgery, University of Nevada, School of Medicine
ER-SPEC is the best!!! Never a chance of cross-contamination or infection, our forensic examiners love them. With the light source so steady, photography of injury is much easier!!"
– Sherri Thornton
Associate Professor of Surgery, University of Nevada, School of MedicineForensic Program Coordinator, RN, SANE-A, SAFE-P, FNE, Maine General Medical Center
Brought a sample of ER-SPEC back to our ER for trial. Our entire staff went wild. Love the convenience, the cleanliness, no need for trying to find working light bulbs or cords. We started using them in the ER, now the entire hospital has converted. I still have staff members thank me for bringing the samples back!"
– Penelope Blake
RN, Good Samaritan Medical Center
I am a regular user of ANOSPEC and my patients have not experience any discomfort. The clear plastic and sleekness of the scope increases the ease of insertion. ANOSPEC is reasonable in cost and therefore lowers the cost of doing the procedure. The customer service is great."
– Rhonda Cook
Physician, Premier Medical Centre, LLC
ANOSPEC is extremely easy and convenient to use. I used a transparent anoscope prior but light and absence of a handle were limitations. I have found that the design with standard speculum handle allows me to hold positioning easier for procedures. The benefit of ANOSPEC is its similarity to permanent device but is disposable. Not having to process a permanent device is worth the cost."
– Mark Williams
Chief of Surgery, Perry Memorial Hospital
Excellent spec for use in a new growing practice. Use with many first time patients whose comfort is important. The visualization is clear and direct. ER-SPEC is my favorite instrument."
– Patricia Schmidt
Chief Medical Officer, Center for Transforming Health
Using the prelit ANOSPEC means that we never have to search for a light source. ANOSPEC is lightweight which means it stays in place better and makes injury photography easier. Thank you for this wonderful product."
– Ellen Johnson
SANE Program Supervisor, Regions Hospital
These speculums are perfect for evaluating victims of sexual assault. you can see much more clearly with ER-SPEC than with the traditional light source."
– Barbara Lopez-Heffernan
Nurse Practitioner, Nassau University Medical Center
Love ER-SPEC – very portable speculums with excellent lighting & easy to use – no cords to find, get lost or stolen; no cleaning or concerns for cross-contamination. Thank you!"
– Teresa Coyne
Clinical Coordinator, Memorial Hermann Katy South
With its integrated light, ANOSPEC makes the performance of anoscopy in the office easier to perform and more accurate."
– Lauren Gerson
Gastroenterologist, California Pacific Medical Center
ANOSPEC is awesome! We have many specialized procedures here and the light is outstanding on this anoscope. The quality is also superior."
– Megan Herr
Director of Nursing and Operations, Lancaster Gastroenterology
Our doctors really enjoy using ANOSPEC. The best part of this product is the built-in light source, the quality of the light source and the fact that no heat is generated from the light. With your single-use scope with obturator, it makes an exam simple and more effective than traditional metal anoscopes that have no light. We find that using your single-use ANOSPEC is more sanitary then re-using metal scopes, as well as being ideal in our busy office. We love that they are individually wrapped, ready for use immediately and the clear scope makes for a more complete exam of the entire anal canal."
– Gwen OQuin
Practice Manager, Colon & Rectal Surgery Associates
The light in ER-SPEC is always shining bright and right where you need it. No attaching or chasing down a separate light source."
– Sharlene Cassidy
Staff Nurse IV, RN, Seton Medical Center
With ER-SPEC, you don’t have to keep up with a light source. Everything you need is right there in the package."
– Jackie Stovall
Materials Management Coordinator, Marion General Hospital
Our doctors love ANOSPEC, light is already to go and use immediately. I like that it is disposable as well."
– Tammy Ives

ANOSPEC makes examining simple – good visualization and is disposable as well as cost-effective."
– Steven Gillon
DO, Digestive Health Center - Englewood
We have ordered ER-SPEC for two different SANE programs, and love how easy they are to use. The light covering being black and then shining right down the speculum instead of lighting up the handle – this makes it easy to get a good colposcopic photo of the cervix."
– Elyse Diewald
SANE Coordinator, Boulder Community Health - Foothills
The use of ER-SPEC hastens the time of prep for gynecological exams which improves our turnaround time, waiting time, and our patient satisfaction. Nurses also like them as they don’t have to run around looking for separates components. It also helps by not having the clutter of cables with the plug-in ones or loosing the lights with the cordless ones."
– Francisco Torres Galarza
Emergency Room Physician, MD, FACEP, Rio Grande Regional
We use ER-SPEC for our SANE Program and love it. We are considering using it in the ER. It eliminates the need for a light source and make doing exams faster and easier."
– Heather Roberts
Emergency Room Manager, St. Thomas More Hospital
ER-SPEC is perfect to use for in-office hysteroscopies and colposcopies. These procedures often have liquids involved which can ruin the type of LED lighting system that inserts into regular plastic speculums. The length of lighting with the ER-SPEC is plenty for these procedures."
– Faye Ameredes
DO, Harmony Health for Women
Staff loves ER-SPEC for the convenience of not having to search the department for a light source!!!!!"
– Kara Cleveland
Professional Development Coordinator, Bristol Hospital
Our physicians like that SURE-SCOPE is plastic so they don’t have to worry about hitting teeth and the light is by far some of the brightest they have worked with."
– Chad Anderson
Purchasing/Materials Management, Crosstown Surgery Center
No more scrubbing with a brush, soaking, autoclaving or swinging a fiber-optic light into position. These new disposable self-lit speculums provide bright light with no cords or battery packs. The plastic click sound has represented another efficiency as I no longer have to turn a thumbscrew to fix the speculum open. Available sizes are perfect. After 36 years of metal speculums this has been a major improvement. Using them also impresses the patients and fits in with the rest of our new equipment and technology."
– Raymond C. Lackore M.D.
FACOG Board Certified OB-GYN, Art & Science of OB-GYN
Our emergency department is continually looking to enhance clinical workflows while improving patient care and ER-SPEC allows us to accomplish both goals. With ER-SPEC, our staff no longer have to search for light sources or leave patients in exam rooms while we track down equipment. As a result, we are able to increase efficiencies and save up to 15 minutes per exam while improving patient satisfaction and supporting our infection control initiatives."
– Bonnie Suydam MSN, RN, CEN
UH Case Medical Center
I used a SURE-SCOPE today to intubate a morbidly obese patient with a short neck. It was great – light was much better than our metal handles and metal blades; light stayed bright for over 20 minutes. Strong plastic."
– Gabe Wilson M.D.
Medical Director, Emergency Department, CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital – Medical Center
We’ve been using the ER-SPEC here in the ED for about 2 months now and the staff LOVES them!"
– Dave Szepytowski
Inventory Coordinator, St. John Hospital & Medical Center
I now use the ANOSPEC over my old Welch Allyn anoscope. I love em. Quick, bright light, and the larger size works for hemorrhoid banding."
– Erich Bruhn, M.D.
Colorectal Surgeon, Bruhn Erich MD
We absolutely love the ER-SPEC. They are a game changer for us. My docs no longer have to look for a light source and then a speculum and then wonder if it is clean and then wonder whatever else goes on in their head as the light bulb goes out. We love them."
– Mark R Brown BSN RN CEN
Nurse Manager, Emergency Services, Alta Bates Summit Medical Center
I LOVE the ER-SPEC. They are far superior to the Welch Allyn KleenSpec in terms of ease of use."
– Sydney Schneidman, M.D.
Emergency Medicine Doctor, Schneidman Sydney W MD
The ER-SPEC has been so popular with the ED physicians, it has now completely replaced our metal ones. The ease of use, reliability and brightness of the light source, and the fact that it’s completely single-use are all wonderful attributes. Once the physicians in our ED used them, they began asking the rest of the ED’s in our network of hospitals to stock them, too."
– Dee Guttadore
Clinical Nurse Manager, Emergency Department, Sycamore Medical Center
Through a consortium of experts, we had a unique opportunity to test OBP’s ER-SPEC in a variety of settings. The ER-SPEC exceeded our expectations for both clinical evaluation and intra-vaginal photodocumentation. OBP’s innovative product design puts to rest many of our long-standing concerns related to corded and cordless lighted speculums!"
– Rachell A. Ekroos PhC APRN-BC AFN-BC
Forensic Medical Consultant, Center for Forensic Nursing Excellence International
The ANOSPEC is wonderful to use. Easy to insert and more importantly, no more struggling to get the light directed properly. Making the light a part of the anoscope makes the exam easier for both the patient and the provider. I definitely recommend this product as the 21st century choice."
– Herbert Brosbe, M.D.
Family Medicine Doctor, Annadel Medical Group: Brosbe Herbert D MD
The ER SPEC is like liquid gold, the best thing since sliced bread."
– Jackie Walker
Office Manager, Rockwell Family Medicine, Christiana Care Primary Care
There is a light at the end of the tunnel finally! The ANOSPEC has increased my visibility for evidence collection in patients who have been anal raped. I was so excited to try this tool as it saved me time and immediately after removing the obturator I could see evidence or injury on the sexual assault patients."
– Diana Faugno
Nurse Examiner, MSN, RN, CPN, SANE-A, SANE-P, FAAFS, DF-IAFN. Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center Eisenhower Medical Center
I have been using the ONETRAC lighted retractor for two years now. Many of my implants are sub muscular and I have found that on those procedures this device shaves a minimum of 30 minutes off the procedure time. If there is any bleeding it probably cuts the procedure time by more than an hour as it makes finding sites of bleeding a quick and painless endeavor. I also think that this device dramatically reduces the risk of damaging a lead when freeing it from adhesions as it dramatically improves visualization, even in a subcutaneous pocket."
– Kevin M. Shannon, MD
As a midwife, I have found the ER-SPECs very helpful in my practice. The light is bright and so easy to use. No need to adjust a light to see, it is right where you need it. I would highly recommend the use of ER-SPECs.”
