Cancer screening with the use of a «cloud» platform is now offered at Skolkovo
«It is the first laboratory in Russia to diagnose and identify tumours in patients with the use of a „cloud“ platform, thanks to which the world’s best pathologists could be brought to help with complicated cases, and thus the risk of misdiagnosis is significantly reduced,» said Alexei Remez, the founder of the laboratory.
A special feature of the project is the introduction of a laboratory information system that monitors the entire process, including the work of experts at every stage, in order to exclude the possibility of errors. In addition, the system monitors the time each case took and also keeps records of and optimises the consumption of antibodies and other reagents.
Remez went on to say that «all diagnostics take place on the unique cloud platform „Digital Pathology“, which allows to conduct consultations regardless of the location of physicians, analyse digitised histological preparations, the results of computer and magnetic resonance imaging scans». He explained that other solutions are used in the laboratory, aimed at increasing the transparency of processes, for example, wireless sensors have been installed inside special refrigerators for supplies that require certain temperature conditions.
