CE Marked Cancer Diagnostic System to Be Presented at MEDICA

Zilico Ltd will present its pioneering newly CE marked cervical cancer diagnostics system at Medica 2013.


The British company’s innovative system, ZedScan I, which recently received EC certification from its notified body, offers more accurate detection of cervical neoplasia in real-time, enabling clinicians to improve patient management.


Zilico’s Chief Executive, Mr Sameer Kothari, will present the system at the four-day exhibition, which takes place at the Messe Düsseldorf from 20-23 November. Zilico Ltd will be located at Hall 16 stand F04-1.


The ZedScan I system is used alongside colposcopy on women identified with an abnormal smear result.


ZedScan offers clinical benefits by identifying those patients who require treatment at first visit, facilitating a wider use of “Select & Treat in addition to reducing the number of cervical biopsies performed on each patient by pin-pointing the optimum site for biopsy.


Zilico’s patented Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) technology exploits the different electrical resistivity of normal, pre-cancerous and cancerous tissue.


The system, which is both safe and painless, consists of a portable hand-held device and docking station, software application and a single-use EIS sensor


Five clinical trials in the UK and EU have supported the clinical efficacy of ZedScan, including a pivotal European trial of 429 women in 2011 across three hospitals in the UK and Ireland.


Following EC certification, ZedScan is being introduced into a number of clinics in the UK and healthcare systems across the globe.


As the biggest healthcare exhibition in the world, attracting more than 130,000 visitors over the four days, Mr Kothari is hoping Medica will provide opportunities to discuss potential commercial partnerships with companies who are experienced in selling into gynaecology.


Sameer Kothari, Chief Executive of Zilico Ltd, said: “ZedScan has generated substantial interest from distributors across the globe through various presentations, conferences and clinical meetings and we now look forward to being able to satisfy the growing demand starting at the world’s biggest healthcare exhibition.”


Medica will take place between the 20 - 23 November 2013 at the Messe Düsseldorf, Germany. Zilico Ltd will be located at Hall 16 stand F04-1.
