Combining and Integrating morphological data (LBC) and genetic data (FISH) offers a more complete and accurate diagnosis, improving the ability to identify malignant and early-stage tumors.
Improved Sample
In liquid-based cytology, collected cells are suspended in a preservative fluid, resulting in more uniform slide preparations and reduced presence of cellular artifacts and debris. This method produces high-quality samples ideal for further analysis.

Cleaner and more uniform samples facilitate the hybridization of fluorescent probes in FISH analysis, enhancing result quality.
More Accurate and Comprehensive Diagnosis:
LBC: Provides detailed cytological evaluation of the cells in the sample, allowing for the identification of morphological abnormalities indicative of cancer.

FISH Complements cytological analysis with specific genetic information, detecting chromosomal rearrangements, gene amplifications, and other genetic alterations not visible with cytology alone.
Reduction of False Negatives and False Positives:
LBC: Reduces false negatives by better presenting cells, allowing for the visualization of even sparse neoplastic cells. FISH Adds a level of certainty by detecting specific genetic alterations, reducing false positives and negatives associated with morphological anomalies alone.

Combination of both technics significantly reduces the incidence of erroneous results, increasing diagnostic reliability.
Efficiency and Time
LBC: Automated sample preparation reduces the time needed for slide preparation and reading.
FISH: Although sophisticated, using LBC samples facilitates automation and high-throughput analysis.

The combined process optimizes the use of time and laboratory resources, allowing for a more efficient workflow.
Patient Management:
BC: Provides a rapid initial assessment that can be immediately followed by FISH analysis if anomalies are detected.
FISH: Provides detailed information for planning personalized treatment based on specific genetic alterations.

The Combination allows for more accurate patient stratification, improving management and treatment decisions based on integrated data of the same specimen.
Versatility and Applicability to Various Cancer Types:
LBC: Usable for numerous types of cytological samples (urine, pleural fluids, fine needle aspirates, etc.).
FISH: Applicable to various cancer types, including bladder, breast, prostate cancers, and leukemias.

The versatility of both methods makes this combination extremely useful for a wide range of oncological applications.
Improved Efficiency and Workflow Optimization:
Hospitex's automated systems for sample processing reduce manual handling, minimize errors, and increase throughput. When integrated with Ikonisys's automated diagnostic platforms, this leads to a highly efficient and optimized workflow.

Cost-Effectiveness: the combined solutions help laboratories reduce costs by improving efficiency and reducing the need for multiple, disparate systems. This makes advanced diagnostics more accessible and affordable.
Comprehensive Diagnostic Solutions:
Hospitex International: Provides robust solutions for the initial stages of the diagnostic process, including sample collection, preparation, and primary analysis. Ikonisys delivers advanced genetic analysis particularly for cancer detection and monitoring.

Together, we offer a full spectrum of diagnostic services, from initial sample handling to detailed genetic analysis, providing laboratories with comprehensive, end-to-end solutions.

Liquid biopsy / CTC

The detection of Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) in urine holds significant promise for diagnosing and monitoring bladder cancer. This non-invasive approach offers several advantages over traditional methods, including easier sample collection, reduced patient discomfort, and potentially higher sensitivity for detecting tumor cells.

By isolating and analyzing CTCs from urine samples, clinicians can obtain valuable information about the presence, characteristics, and genetic profiles of bladder cancer cells. This enables more accurate diagnosis and staging of the disease, as well as monitoring treatment response and disease progression over time.

Revolutionize breast cancer early diagnostics with our advanced screening technologies, empowering clinicians to detect abnormalities at the earliest stages, leading to timely interventions and improved patient outcomes.BREAST CANCER
Early Diagnostics

Early diagnostics of breast cancer is paramount as it significantly increases the likelihood of successful treatment and improved patient outcomes. Detecting breast cancer in its early stages allows for less aggressive treatment options, such as surgery or radiation therapy, which can result in reduced morbidity and improved quality of life for patients.

Moreover, early detection often enables a greater range of treatment choices, including less invasive procedures and targeted therapies, which can help to preserve breast tissue and minimize side effects.

Methanol free formulation to guarantee maximum safety.
The conical bottom tubes are equipped with a special disposable cardboard base, which is removable at the time of centrifugation and is totally recyclable. This allows to keep the vials vertical and stable, facilitating the urine sample collection process.

After collection, the urine samples are fixed and stable for 14 days at room temperature, in order to allow the samples to be delivered to the laboratory by the patients, without the risk of degradation of the biological material.


CYTOfast Plus is the advanced liquid-phase cytology processor in the CYTOfast system, designed for preparing thin-layer cytological samples from liquid-phase specimens. It utilizes the patented Nephelometric Smart Technology (NST).

The final thin-layer preparations are achieved through a rapid centrifugation process, resulting in the cytological sample being deposited in a defined 17-mm diameter circular area on the slide. Thanks to the Balanced Equilibrium between cellularity and background material, detected by NST before processing, CYTOfast thin-layer preparations are perfectly representative and appropriate in relation to the collected samples.

The CYTOfast Plus system boasts the highest productivity on the market, with a Turn Around Time (TAT) of 60 slides per hour, equating to one sample processed every minute.
