A method for cancer cell detection including the steps of (a) staining an analyzed sample with at least first and second dyes, the dyes being selected such that the first dye better adheres to normal cells whereas the second dye better adheres to cancer cells; (b) spectrally imaging the sample through an optical device being optically connected to an imaging spectrometer thereby obtaining a spectrum of each pixel of the sample; (c) based on the spectra, evaluating concentrations of the first and second dyes for each of the pixels; and (d) based on the concentrations detecting the presence of cancer cells in the sample.
