Is Spot the same as India ink?

No, it’s not. Spot endoscopic marker contains high purity suspended carbon particles, whereas India ink often contains impurities such as shellacs, phenols, ammonia and animal products. These impurities can be associated with complications such as inflammatory reactions. In a 113 patient study of Spot, no inflammation, fever or abdominal pain was detected in any of the patients. What does that all mean? It means Spot is proven to be cleaner and safer than non-sterile India ink.
