Hologic Announces European Launch of Genius™ Digital Diagnostics System for Cervical Cancer Screening

Powerful artificial intelligence combined with digital imaging designed to transform the screening process

Hologic, Inc. (Nasdaq: HOLX) announced today that its new Genius™ Digital Diagnostics System is now commercially available in Europe. The Genius Digital Diagnostics System is the next generation of cervical cancer screening that combines deep learning-based artificial intelligence (AI) with advanced volumetric imaging technology to help identify pre-cancerous lesions and cervical cancer cells in women. It was developed to provide actionable insights, and improve workflow and lab efficiency, all with one goal in mind – to eradicate cervical cancer.

With the Genius Digital Diagnostics System, cutting-edge image analysis thoroughly interrogates every cell on a ThinPrep® Pap test image to curate a single view of the most clinically relevant objects. The new algorithm – GeniusTM Cervical AI – narrows tens of thousands of cells down to an AI-generated gallery, which arms healthcare providers with the critical information they need to guide earlier detection and better treatment decisions for the patients in their care.

“We strive to develop innovative solutions that meet our customers’ needs. We are delighted in the overwhelming positive feedback from the customers who have been the first in the world to use this technology,” said Andrew Pieprzyk, vice president, Strategic Development Diagnostics, International, Hologic. “The technology enhances the capabilities of individual laboratories and also has the potential to radically transform how cervical cancer screening is carried out, by enabling laboratories within the same network to collaborate across the world to manage the case load.”

Hologic has been working with leading laboratories in Europe to give them an early opportunity to evaluate the new system including ZotzKlimas Diagnostics Laboratories in Germany, where Founder, Dietmar Klimas, M.D., has led the review.

“As one of the largest labs in Germany, our main objective is to deliver accurate results to doctors and ultimately patients,” said Dr Klimas. “We were one of the first in the world to work with the Genius Digital Diagnostics system. The trial proved to me that this system can help my team to accurately process samples faster and more easily. We are continuing to use it following the trial.”

The Genius Digital Diagnostics System enables seamless and dynamic collaboration across laboratories within a network, connecting pathologists with remote review capabilities so each patient can benefit from the collective knowledge of geographically dispersed experts. Digital case review promises to enhance the experience for lab partners by improving workflow and accelerating review time.

Hologic now offers the first CE-marked comprehensive cervical cancer screening portfolio from sample collection to digital diagnosis.[i] The Genius Digital Diagnostics System consists of the GeniusTM Digital Imager for image acquisition, the GeniusTM Cervical AI algorithm for analyzing images, the GeniusTM Image Management Server (IMS) for storing images and the GeniusTMReview Station for case review. The complete system is scalable, designed to fit the present and future needs of laboratories.

Dr. Sachita Shah, Sr. Director, Global Health, Butterfly Network, "Butterfly is proud to continue improving maternal health equity through Phase Two of the largest-scale handheld ultrasound distribution and training ever conducted in Sub-Saharan Africa. South Africa is an emerging market that continues to have disproportionately high rates of maternal mortality and stillbirth. Patients need easier access to antenatal imaging, and clinicians need better capabilities for screening high-risk conditions that lead to disproportionately worse pregnancy outcomes in rural areas in the public sector. Together with CHAI and GUSI, we can tackle this by making ultrasound much more accessible, so high-risk conditions can be identified earlier in care, which is known to improve outcomes.”
The clinical Study will enroll up to 97 patients at up to 12 European investigational sites. Completion of the study is expected this year, and results will support CE mark and pre-market approval submissions reports Vivasure Medical.
Dr. Michael Newman, Indaptus’ Founder, Chief Scientific Officer, and lead author, commented, “The new data are consistent with our preclinical animal tumor model studies and provide evidence for our hypothesis that patented Decoy bacteria can activate a wide range of innate and adaptive human immune cells involved in fighting tumors.  This aligns with what we’ve observed in our ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial of Decoy20 – broad immune activation, as evidenced by transiently increased levels of many key cytokines and chemokines following single dose administration. These findings bolster our confidence in Decoy20's potential as a multifaceted immunotherapy.”
