Visiopharm Powers Up With VIS 6.0

Share Article

Today Visiopharm, the leading provider of quantitative digital pathology software for diagnostics and research launches Engine™ a new technology, which can leverage endless computational power for faster results in their new version 6.0 software for digital pathology.

Adding more computer power to obtain faster results in Digital Pathology

"VIS 6.0 with Engine™ is the fastest image analysis software on the market, and with this launch we once again increase our lead over our competitors”, explains CTO Johan Doré Hansen.

The desire for faster and more cost effective solutions for interpretation of targeted treatment need no longer be a dream. Visiopharms new software not only ensures that the speed of processing is increased well beyond the current speed limits of quantitative digital pathology, the time it takes to do labor intensive quantitative tasks can be significantly reduced, the quality of data greatly improved, and some of the work reassigned to technologists or other laboratory staff members.

6 x faster with options to endlessly increase processing speed
With VIS 6.0 Visiopharm continues to deliver reproducible and accurate quantitative data that helps to improve productivity in the laboratories, but now at a much higher speed. In complex heterogeneous tumors the speed has proven to be 6 times faster than the previous software version. Further processing power can be added in a cost-efficient network. With endless computational power in the background the software delivers scalable processing across a network.

Fast, easy targeted
The new technology increases the processing speed for image analysis on the scanned images considerably, while simplifying the work with HotSpot analysis, the work of identifying pre-invasive vs. invasive modes gets more efficient. CMO Helle Fisker explains: "Digital Pathology is now so strong that it beyond doubt will be a vital part of the workflow in pathology laboratories as it is happening now in several countries”.

Speed is essential
The speed of sample processing is now so good that it allows for clinical routine pathology delegate work and still meets the increasing workload expectations. “VIS 6.0 with Engine™ is the fastest image analysis software on the market and with this launch we once again increase our lead over our competitors”, explains CTO Johan Doré Hansen.

From time consuming to cost efficient
Today, there are tests where cells are counted manually under a microscope; a time-consuming, challenging and thus costly task. With automated cell counting and powerful Image Analysis algorithms like Her2 analysis for targeted treatment, Hot Spot detection and separation of stroma in complex tumors, labor intensive work processes can be reduced and some of the work potentially delegated to technologists or other laboratory functions.
