Medicyt is a modern laboratory that provides cytological and bioptic diagnostics in several regions of the Slovak Republic. It runs three pathological laboratories (Bratislava, Trenčín, Košice), all of which are fully equipped in terms of professional staff and technology. With state-of-the-art equipment and the latest diagnostic approaches, the laboratories represent the cutting edge in the given field in Slovakia. Offering services that meet high standards, they cater to their clients’ needs and follow the latest trends in the field they focus on, especially when it comes to automated sample processing. Today, we analyse and interpret the greatest number of cytological samples in Slovakia (approximately 250 000 female patients a year), offering high quality sample assessment thanks to a highly developed system of rescreening. Medicyt was the first laboratory to introduce the Slovak market to the new cervical cancer screening method called “Liquid-Based Cytology,” which is now used in combination with an automated computer-assisted microscope.
Medicyt received a certificate for meeting the STN EN ISO 9001:2009 quality management standards in 2009, so its clients can rest assured that all the activities that the company undertakes, including all the services it provides, are continually monitored and assessed in terms of quality in an effort to meet the client’s requirements as much as possible.
MEDIREX GROUP ACADEMY (MGA)
MEDIREX GROUP ACADEMY is a non-profit organisation specialising in biomedical science and research and supporting educational activities. MGA’s research activities focus on a variety of biomedical fields, such as genetics, epigenetics, proteomics, metabolomics, immunology, cytology, and histology. The aim is to seek new biomarkers and preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that have potential to put scientific findings in the sphere of biomedicine into diagnostic and therapeutic practice. MGA’s educational activities focus on undergraduate and postgraduate training for students, doctors, university health care professionals, laboratory assistants, and nurses to help them enhance their professional skills and acquire new knowledge on a continual basis. Another major goal of MGA’s activity is to maintain cooperation with foreign academic institutions with a view to establishing postgraduate exchange internships particularly in the field of biomedicine. By running doctoral programmes in cooperation with foreign universities, for example, we will be able to increase the level of postgraduate education in biomedicine, transferring knowledge into research activities carried out by MGA or the Centre for Excellent Biomedical Research.
