Dear Distributors, Partners and Friends,
The only constant in business and in life is change. However, change does not necessarily mean that continuity will not be given in the future.
When change means that new products can be offered to the market, when change means that existing products can be improved to meet new market requirements and when change means that new business opportunities can be realized, then change is always considered as positive to all of us in the IVD business.

COMPANY
Bertrand de Castelnau Leaves DiaSys
5 years of passion for DiaSys, 5 years of commitment, 5 years of accumulated knowledge and friendship …
DiaSys has an amazing market position with a great reputation, DiaSys has an outstanding pipeline therefore a bright future. 
DiaSys has a unique culture, introduced and continued by its founder.

I leave with a crying eye due to personal reasons but I will keep DiaSys in my heart. In particular, let‘s always remember who was the gold medal winner in high jump at the Mexican Olympics: thinking out of the box, hard work and perseverance but also resilience. I sincerely believe it can be found in the genes of DiaSys!
The future is positive for DiaSys, thinking positively, walking the extra mile and reinventing itself.
Once DiaSys, always DiaSys.

Bertrand de Castelnau

 DiaSys: A Pioneer in the Diagnosis of Kidney Disease
We addressed the indispensable value of cystatin C (CysC) and its clear superiority compared to creatinine in the fight against the global burden of kidney diseases in previous DiaLog editions.

In DiaLog edition 53/2017 we were proud to announce that Bargnoux and co-workers demonstrated in a multicenter study that DiaSys’ Cystatin C FS had by far the best performance among all tested immunoturbidimetric assays in serum¹. Besides DiaSys, just a nephelometric assay from Siemens was able to achieve a similar performance.

Increased First Trimester HbA1c Predicts Gestational Diabetes
Since its widespread introduction into routine clinical practice nearly two decades ago, hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) has become an essential parameter for diagnosis and management of diabetes mellitus. HbA1c reflects the average blood glucose levels over the previous three months, based on the amount of glucose accumulated on erythrocytes’ surface.

Diabetes in pregnant women is associated with an increased risk for maternal and neonatal morbidity and remains a medical challenge. Complications range from an increased risk for Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) and cardiovascular disease later in life in mothers to an increased risk for developing macrosomia and obesity in offspring.
