Diamics Receives European CE Mark Approval for Its Pap-Map(TM) System for Cervical Cancer Screening

NOVATO, Calif., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Diamics announced today that it has received the European CE Mark (Conformite Europeene) approval for its Pap-Map(TM) System for cervical cancer screening. The CE Mark certifies that the product has met EU health, safety and environmental requirements that ensure consumer and workplace safety. Granted in the Netherlands, the registration will allow the system to be marketed in the European Union (EU) and other countries around the world that recognize the CE Mark.

The Pap-Map System was developed to improve the effectiveness of traditional cervical cancer screening. Comprised of the Pap-Map Cervical Cancer Collector, the Pap-Map Handle and the Transfer Station, the system allows the clinician to painlessly capture 360 degrees of cervical material and transfer the cells, with their spatial orientation intact, to a slide to support localization of identified lesions in both initial diagnosis and follow-up treatments.

"This CE Mark registration is a clear milestone for Diamics as it opens the door for commercialization of the system throughout the EU and other areas to help improve the detection of cervical cancer," said Peter Gombrich, CEO, Diamics.

"This approval clears the way for the Pap-Map system to establish itself as a platform for molecular-based cervical cancer screening," said Piush Vidyarthi, Vice President of Business Development, Diamics.

Cancer of the cervix is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in women worldwide. Approximately 500,000 new cases are diagnosed each year, 80% of which occur in developing countries. It is estimated that of the more than 2.5 billion females worldwide who are eligible for cervical cancer testing only approximately 6%, or 160 million, are screened routinely.
