The new technical partnership between Inspirata and Flagship Biosciences provides clinicians with a seamless, fully automated AI send-out solution, offering significant advantages over standard material transfers.
Tampa, FL / Westminster, CO, October 27, 2020 / GlobeNewswire – Cancer informatics and digital pathology provider Inspirata announced today a new technical partnership with clinical diagnostics service provider, Flagship Biosciences. The new partnership provides clinicians with digital access to TissueInsight™, an AI-based analysis engine for Send-Out tests like PD-L1. Working together, Flagship Bioscience’s TissueInsight and Inspirata’s Dynamyx solutions offer significant advantages over shipping physical samples.
Inspirata’s Dynamyx affords an “open” architecture designed to enable healthcare providers to arrive at their preferred blend of laboratory and diagnostic technologies. Flagship’s TissueInsight utilizes advanced artificial intelligence (AI) to provide gold-standard PD-L1 results along with analysis of the tumor microenvironment, including tumor infiltration leukocytes (TILs) and macrophages. The new partnership will provide joint customers with the ability to order Flagship’s TissueInsight directly from within Inspirata’s Dynamyx and to receive CLIA-reportable results back within the case details.
“Our goal is to create a more streamlined workflow for pathologists as well as provide more insight for oncologists through our computational services,” said Trevor Johnson, CEO of Flagship Biosciences. “We’re pleased to be partnering with Inspirata to advance the state of diagnostics through the use of image analysis.”
“Dynamyx becomes the technology enabler for clinicians to leverage images of samples to eliminate recuts, reduce the exhaustion of patient tissues and decrease turn-around time for clinically valuable assays,” said Mark Lloyd, PhD, Executive Vice President and Founder of Inspirata. “What makes this partnership so valuable is that organizations can receive the quantitative and reproducible results they require to make informed clinical decisions directly from within their existing digital workflow.”
Inspirata will be participating in the Vendor Showcase at this year’s virtual Pathology Visions conference. In his live presentation at 10 AM PST on October 29th, Dr. Mark Lloyd will focus on the importance of having the right platform to bring WSI, AI, NLP and other cutting-edge technologies together. His talk will include a segment on the Dynamyx and TissueInsight integration. For a preview of that presentation, please visit inspirata.link/pv2020showcase.
