"Making HemoScreen widely available enables healthcare organizations to maximize diagnostic resources and helps physicians make faster and more educated clinical decisions. Ultimately, we want to increase efficiency of diagnostics while maintaining the precision of result to help improve patient care and outcomes in a variety of point-of-care settings, including the ICU, emergency departments and oncology wards," said Dr. Avishay Bransky, CEO of PixCell Medical.
