Pathology will implement HemoScreen(TM) devices within small labs, in large 
emergency departments without onsite labs, and to upgrade some existing 
technology. The devices will then be further assessed for utility in oncology 
clinics and other settings.

    "We recognize the need to simplify real-time blood testing and are proud to 
work with NSW Health Pathology to increase accessibility to POC diagnostics," 
said Avishay Bransky, Ph.D., CEO and co-founder of PixCell Medical.

parameters, which are routinely used to check the overall health status of a 
patient. The CBC has recently found valid to monitor the severity of COVID-19 
and the progression of the disease."

years of experience in the supply and use of scientific equipment and products, 
will be the sole distributor of HemoScreens for the region of Australia.
