Robotic microscopy expedites bladder Ca diagnosis

May 19, 2007

The oncoFISH Bladder robotic digital microscopy system from Ikonisys (New Haven, CT) identifies and measures aneuploidy on chromosomes 3, 7, 9, and 17 in urine sediment specimens for diagnosis of initial and recurrent bladder cancer. Up to 170 prepared slides can be loaded, scanned, and the images captured in this walkaway system, which generates a gallery of images for review and interpretation. Select slide images and the analytical report can be transmitted to the urologist within 24 hours for diagnosis.

The system offers 98.5% concordance between manual and automated readings and 100% consistency in procedure, minimizing the potential for false-positive readings.
