Medical Diagnostic Center & Polyclinic
The Diagnostic and Research Laboratory LOCUS-MEDICUS SA has been active in the field of health since 1996. Today it operates as a Limited Medical Company. Its headquarters are located at the Municipality of Holagos-Papagos at 246 Mesogeion Avenue. The Company operates with a valid authorization of establishment and operation according to P.D. 84/2001 and has contract with insurance companies of the State and the wider sector.
In 1996, the founding scientific team of the company LOCUS-MEDICUS, started the first private company that would combine equally the provision of health services with pure research. Regarding clinical research, it introduced to the Greek market (and, in some cases, to the world) for the first time the use of state-of-the-art technology and the know-how of new (for that time) diagnostic techniques, such as molecular pathology, genetics, flow cytometry, etc. The introduction of the above “seminal” (for that time) diagnostic tests by LOCUS-MEDICUS, led in many cases to their subsequent establishment as widely used commercial tests. Thus, LOCUS-MEDICUS established these new diagnostic tests considering the Greek clinical doctor, but also the general public, while it paved the way for competing companies, allowing them to penetrate the field of specialized tests. Nevertheless, LOCUS-MEDICUS has managed not only to maintain its leading position in this market, but also managed to continue to “generate” new ways of diagnostic approach to medical issues, thus improving existing techniques and applying new tests for the first time worldwide.
A feature of the company is the fact that it belongs to its employees (doctors, biologists, scientists from other fields, administrative and technical staff). It is very important for the employee to feel that the company is his own and to consider its progress as his personal business.
We provide specialized services, certified by the largest organizations in the world.
Who we are
At Medical Diagnostic Center and Polyclinic Locus Medicus AE there are laboratories for conventional and specialized tests, as well as clinics of various specialties which cover the needs for preventive medicine, for periodic health check-up, but also for the monitoring of chronic diseases (e.g., x. hypertension, diabetes, hepatitis etc.).
At the same time, for almost 25 years, the laboratories and clinics of LOCUS-MEDICUS have been specializing in investigating and treating infertility of unknown etiology and recurrent miscarriages, having helped more than 15,000 couples, using our clinical and research experience, our exclusive technology, and our internationally patented diagnostic tests.
Apart from infertility and miscarriages, a main field of immediate scientific interest is the investigation of hematological malignancies, with the participation of six scientists of related kinds of specialization and qualification. We have the only laboratory in the country that combines molecular, cytogenetic, histological and immunophenotypic approach.
It would be an omission not to mention the services provided to interested parties in the last twenty years, on issues of paternity recognition or other kinship, but also on issues of inheritance of characteristics. Regarding these issues we provide reliability, rapidity and, of course, confidentiality.
Considering the development of the company, which over time is based on the integration of research results and products into the laboratory routine, the evaluations, and assessments of clinical colleagues, either those who work within LOCUS-MEDICUS or those who work as external collaborators, have always played a key role. The role of clinical doctors has always been essential in assessing the clinical significance of research data. They are motivated to adopt the currently approved scientific advancements and apply them in their daily clinical practice.
Finally, the contribution of LOCUS-MEDICUS to the Greek and International scientific community is actively proven with more than 20 international (and 8 Greek) publications in reputable scientific journals and with more than 35 participations in Greek and international scientific conferences (4 conference awards), and 4 international patents. At the same time, the company actively supports the young Greek scientists by making available both the material and technical infrastructure of its laboratories to them, as well as the know-how of its executives (Direct participation in 8 Doctoral dissertations of young scientists, 3 Master’s dissertations (one of them with distinction and monetary prize), 2 students’ placement from Universities of Great Britain etc.)
The operation of the clinics at a functional distance from the laboratories provides the possibility of immediate tests and then immediate evaluation in the same visit! This spares the patient more visits and, in many cases, accelerates the problem-solving approach.
However, apart from the direct cooperation with the laboratories and the research activities of the company, it is a self-evident advantage to meet colleagues of many different specializations and to assess in collaboration, on a daily basis, complex and problematic situations that are routinely encountered.
