Mother & Baby - - WHAT’S ON -

POC Med­i­cal Sys­tems Inc. Re­cently un­veiled a rapid and por­ta­ble breast cancer screen­ing test— Mammo-Alert™ based on its Pan­dora Cdx™ mi­croflu­idics-based plat­form. Present at the in­au­gu­ra­tion were Mrs Am­ruta Fad­navis, Dr Deepak Sawant, health min­is­ter, Prakash Me­hta, hous­ing depart­ment and Vidya Thakur, women and child de­vel­op­ment. This por­ta­ble breast cancer screen­ing test which runs on Pan­dora Cdx tech­nol­ogy, uses a drop of blood to gen­er­ate re­sults in few min­utes. It uses mul­ti­ple cancer mark­ers for higher ac­cu­racy. This will have a huge so­cial im­pact en­abling thou­sands of women in In­dia to de­tect breast cancer in its early stage due to the prod­uct’s ef­fi­cient, sim­ple, ac­cu­rate and sig­nif­i­cant af­ford­abil­ity. POC’s dis­rup­tive tech­nol­ogy will al­low med­i­cal di­ag­nos­tics to be avail­able for com­mon peo­ple, es­pe­cially in vil­lages and tier three and four cities. POC Med­i­cal Sys­tems plans to launch Mammo-Alert in In­dia by July 2017.
