PathXL annouces Automated Tumor Cell Counting on Digital H&E Slides

PathXL today announced it will unveil a significant upgrade to its award-winning product, TissueMark®, which will now include a powerful add-on for cell counting. The formal announcement will take place at the forthcoming Global Engage Digital Pathology Congress, to be held in London on Dec 4th and 5th, where PathXL’s founder and VP for R&D, Professor Peter Hamilton, will be giving a detailed presentation.

TissueMark will now include a powerful add-on for cell counting

The tumor cell counting capability is powered by PathXL’s Tissue Recognition Engine™ and is an extension to PathXL’s current TissueMark range, designed for the rapid and automated detection and analysis of tumor tissue on digitized, H&E stained tissue samples.

“Automated tumor cell counting is one of the most sought after applications in the field of digital imaging,” said Des Speed, CEO of PathXL. “I’m proud of the work our team have done here in bringing together several different approaches to crack this problem. The new TissueMark product will prove hugely valuable to those labs that need to feed accurate tumor content information into the molecular pathology process and for those wishing to establish strong quality and audit trails”

Illumina Selects GenoLogics’ LIMS Software to Support HiSeq Customers

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – GenoLogics said today that Illumina has selected its Clarity laboratory information management system (LIMS) as the preferred software for customers of its HiSeq X Ten sequencing platform.

With this announcement, GenoLogics makes good on a promise it made earlier this year that an upcoming release of Clarity would include support for the HiSeq X Ten. Together, the companies are currently working on support for HiSeq X Ten whole-genome workflows and analysis pipelines, including those that will be used inside of Illumina, GenoLogics said. Additionally, Illumina will use Clarity to support its collaboration with Genomics England to sequence 100,000 genomes.

“Illumina is pleased to be working with GenoLogics to ensure HiSeq X Ten customers receive the LIMS support they need,” Alex Dickinson, Illumina’s senior vice president of strategic initiatives, said in a statement. “Scaling a lab to deliver the $1,000 genome presents unique challenges and GenoLogics has the demonstrated ability and understanding of our technologies to support these labs.”
GenoLogics’ Clarity already supports Illumina’s TruSight individual genome sequencing test as well as its HiSeq, MiSeq, and Genome Analyzer sequencers.
