In 2019 there were 43,361 new cancer cases diagnosed in Ireland, 3,100 of these were breast related cancers. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, every 3 minutes in Ireland someone got a cancer diagnosis and every hour there was a cancer related death.
This year it is EVEN MORE IMPORTANT because we believe that CANCER CARE AND SCREENING MUST REMAIN A PRIORITY also during a Pandemic.
2020 has been a powerful reminder that we are all in this together, and our choices and actions have the power to protect the most vulnerable in a big way. The same holds true when it comes to breast cancer.
With the need for more rapid communication of biopsy results, Diapath has two products that can help with the diagnosis of Breast Cancer. The Automatic Stainer Giotto and the Cristallo method.
Results show that the Cristallo method ensures an excellent quality evaluation due to stunning clarity, deep contrast and brilliant colour combined offering similar performances under a microscope to the standard method (glass coverslipping). This allows significant time-saving which ensures a reduction in turnaround time.
Diapath Giotto Stainer (H&E, Papanicolaouand Special Stainer) in combination with Cristallo “Liquid CoverSlipper Technology” is a unique and innovative solution which will significantly reduce the use of consumables (mounting media, glass coverslips not required), eliminate coverslipper instrument maintenance (calibrations, servicing and potential breakdowns) and provide an optimal footprint with the use of one instrument only.
One litre of toxic-free Cristallo can coverslip up to 1000 slides.
