Indica Labs’ HALO AP software
Indica Labs’ HALO AP is a CE-IVD certified software platform which brings remote slide review, case-centric digital pathology slide management, collaboration and AI-powered quantitative image analysis to anatomic pathology labs worldwide. HALO AP features a streamlined user interface that makes analysis and annotation of slides simple and easy. Slide annotations from HALO AP are automatically simplified and transferred to Xyall’s Tissector system for tumour tissue dissection. Future deployments including tumour-detecting AI and cell-quantification algorithms via HALO AP’s workflow-based interface promise pathologists even more tools for tumour content assessment.
Guido du Pree, Xyall’s CEO, explained: “The increase in the number of therapies for cancer patients has, in turn, driven demand for molecular diagnostic testing to inform treatment decisions. These tests require a consistently high sample quality and efficiency that is difficult to achieve with the current way of working.
“Clinicians and lab scientists have been calling for faster and more accurate tissue dissection as a critical element in precision oncology. Xyall’s unique technology provides this missing link by delivering fully automated tissue dissection solutions which enable a more efficient, standardized and accurate workflow.
“By combining Xyall’s technology with the advanced image management solutions of Indica Labs, we can provide optimal quality and efficiency across the whole workflow of tissue dissection for molecular pathology testing.”
Eric Runde, Indica Labs’ COO, adds: “As new therapies are discovered and the need for molecular testing increases, it’s important that clinicians are able to obtain as much tumour tissue as possible, as every cell contains vital information. We are excited to partner with Xyall to address this growing need. Our combined solution allows users to document and track each step of the dissection process. HALO AP simplifies the annotation process, ensuring that what you select is precisely what you get. With its simple-to-use interface, HALO AP has the potential to even further simplify the process of selection by providing easy access to AI-assisted workflows.”
