TissueGnostics was established in 2003 after nearly a decade of basic research. The goal was to supply scientists with qualitative and observer independent results for cell and tissue analysis in tissue context and this in automated format and significantly less time.
Katja ?sterreicher, Georg Steiner and Dr. Rupert Ecker, the three co-founders of the company, with the aid of a dozen of development partners (Medical University Vienna, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center New York, Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Cancer Research, Vienna; Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, Seattle; Brighamand Women`s Hospital, Boston; etc.) succeeded in reaching this target by 2005.
Since then TissueGnostics expanded worldwide, with subsidiaries in Romania, the US and more than 15 different distributors (incl. Japan, China, Taiwan, France, Russia, Korea, Australia, Philippines, Great Britain, Italy, Kuwait, etc.). In 2008/2009 TissueGnostics completed its product portfolio with the HemoFAXS, differentiated blood smear analysis system, setting a new standard in blood analysis.
The combination of modern and state-of-the art analysis methods for scientific and clinical use in tissue and cell based research with innovative and easy-to-handle software to ensure efficient and reliable diagnostics always was and will be the motivation behind TissueGnostics product developments.
