We believe in an alternative

That’s why we’re re-inventing urine cytology.

The Company

Cytosystems develops non-invasive cancer diagnostic and stratification products, with an emphasis on a whole-cell approach.  Based on ground-breaking research at the University of Cambridge, UK, Cytosystems works with clinicians and pathology laboratories to take technologies from bench research to a clinical product for the benefit of patients.  Cytosystems has developed a patent portfolio of enabling technologies for the diagnosis and management of patients with urological cancers.


Cytosystems’ first proprietary product, BladderLight™, redefines the potential of urine cytology in the diagnosis and management of patients with bladder cancer.

The benefits include: improved cell collection and preservation sensitive and specific molecular marker whole-cell approach digitized analysis
