Acid Deprived DiAldehyde FiXative
ADDAX Biosciences is an academic spin-off of the University of Turin, born after long time research activity of its founders on the fixation of pathological tissues. Our company goal is to replace the use of Formalin (a cancerogenic and toxic solution of Formaldehyde) as a fixative solution, while preserving optimal tissue fixation to guarantee correct diagnosis and therapy.
We believe it is necessary to guarantee the highest standard of accuracy and reliability of the examinations carried out on biological samples, in order to preserve the health of the patients. At the same time, we also deem necessary to safeguard the health of the operators.
