Ikonisys announces the successful installation of the Ikoniscope20 at TomaLab, one of the largest genetics laboratories in Italy
Future applications for new assays are being evaluated to further exploit the instrument’s capabilities to automate laboratory workflow and analyze samples otherwise impossible to study manually.
PARIS, February 07, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Regulatory news:
Ikonisys SA (ISIN Code: FR00140048X2 / Mnemonic: ALIKO), a company specializing in the early and accurate detection of cancer with a unique fully automated solution for medical diagnostic laboratories, announced the successful sale and installation of the Ikoniscope20 at Toma Advanced Biomedical Assays Spa (Busto Arsizio, VA , Italy) and the continuation of the fruitful collaboration between the laboratory and the company. Since installation, TomaLab has successfully validated the Ikoniscope20 for routine FISH testing in oncology, using multiple applications ranging from lung cancer (oncoFISH ALK) to bladder cancer (bladder oncoFISH).
This partnership is a concrete step in the marketing strategy and demonstrates the ability of the commercial organization to achieve the objective of rapid growth of Ikoniscope20 installations: TomaLab will serve as a reference laboratory for Ikonisys, allowing interested stakeholders and prospects to review the instrument and its capabilities.
The laboratory will continue to collaborate in the development of new applications for tests that are or will become of particular interest in the field of cancer diagnosis, with particular emphasis on the capabilities of the instrument to perform both tests based on FISH and on antibodies. trials. This is a factual step in the strategy mentioned at the IPO to develop new applications, expanding into promising new segments of the IVD market.
Dr. Tshering Dorji, Head of Pathology, TomaLabcommented, “We are very impressed with the Ikoniscope20 and excited to continue our collaboration with Ikonisys. The compact size of the instrument allowed us to fit it perfectly into our setup and the high throughput of this new FISH analyzer is very impressive. to the high quality of the scanned images reported and the easy-to-use remote connection, the instrument continues to play a very important role in our daily patient care workflow.”
