CytoMatrix is a synthetic matrix that counts among its various characteristics the property to capture and store inside its three-dimensional structure, the biological material (micro-macro cells and cell aggregates) from needle withdrawal samples.

CytoMatrix preserves (by formalin fixation and paraffin embedding) the material from a needle aspiration, on which various routine diagnostic tests will be performed, from Hematoxylin-Eosin (H&E), Immunohistochemistry (IHC), FISH, Molecular Biology. This makes it an essential and in some cases indispensable and irreplaceable tool for a complete and accurate diagnosis. This makes it an essential “Tool” and in many cases “indispensable and irreplaceable” for a complete and accurate diagnosis.
OPTIMAL SAMPLE MANAGEMENT
CytoMatrix innovation allows the operator to manage the biological material available in a “rational” way.
It follows that the management of a precious and not abundant material such as that coming from aspiration needle samples can be managed by the laboratory in an optimal way.
All the material taken with the fine needle aspiration is available in CytoMatrix.
Form collection to inclusion without intervening or altering the material taken
Withdrawal with needle aspiration from the structure of interest
Deposition of the fine aspirated material on CytoMatrix
Formalin fixation of the CytoMatrix-Needle aspiration material complex obtained in step 2
Processing and paraffin embedding of the CytoMatrix-Needle aspiration material complex
Application on the inclusion obtained, of the diagnostic techniques used in the Histopathology laboratory
Possibility of performing further diagnostic tests without further sampling
The needle aspiration material does not undergo any direct intervention by the technical operator in the various steps listed above.
