Automated Mapping Tool For Biopsy Plates

EU-based manufacturer of scanning digital microscopes tasked Auriga with development of an automated tool for biopsy plates mapping to improve time-response, reduce lab workload and errors, and contribute to better patient care.

Projects Highlights
  • Minimal HW requirements.
  • Integration with laboratory IS.
  • Automated discard of screening failure samples, notification and tips for laboratory technicians.
  • Algorithms optimization, high-rate visualization processing speed.
  • Next stage of the project: full automation slides loading to report generation.
  • Flexible algorithms setup.
  • Open source based solution.
Achieved Benefits
  • Automated image capture, tissue location, autonomous scanning, focus map generation.
  • 85% of plates are mapped automatically.
  • Improved scanning accuracy leads to early diagnostics and treatment.
  • Significant cut of time and effort for lab technicians – manual mapping only for rejected plates.
