Digital Pathology and Image Analysis

Digital Pathology

Histologix is able to provide digital scanning services through the use of the Hamamatsu NanoZoomer. Scanning at magnifications of x20 and x40, Histologix will generate high quality images of your Haematoxylin and Eosin, IHC and ISH stained slides. Digital Images also used for image analysis.

By uploading these onto a secure cloud server you can remotely access these images in an instant from your office.

Where we use the digital scans for Pathologist review these can be accessed by more than one Pathologist at a time thereby reducing your review process. For archiving purposes we can load these onto external hard-drives for you.

Image Analysis

HALO™ is the next generation highly intuitive image analysis platform for digital pathology. Combining precision histology analytics, interactive results, with unmatched performance and scalability. The HALO platform supports Indica Labs’ precision histology image analysis algorithms. This tool set includes industry leading applications for oncology, neuroscience, metabolic disorders, toxicological pathology, and many more.

Designed to handle huge data sets, HALO measures and reports individual cell data and maintains an interactive link between cell metrics and cell imagery. The ability to data mine millions of cells while visually assessing corresponding cell populations opens the door to remarkable discoveries. Suited to analyze a handful of photomicrographs or thousands of large whole-slide images, HALO’s parallel processing technology and optimized algorithms yield up to 4X the analysis rate of competitive solutions. This performance gain can be realized in small-scale laboratory workstation environments or multiplied in large scale multi-server installations.

Data from positive stained cells can be presented as a percentage of total cells present. Due to the way in which HALO records positive staining, it is also possible to present data as an H-Score in an automated manner.

With over 20 years of experience within this field including working with software engineers to assist in the development of image analysis systems Histologix staff are uniquely well placed to deliver analysis solutions for your studies.
