NEW YORK – Digital pathology firm Proscia announced Tuesday it is collaborating with Royal Philips to "advance an open ecosystem" to accelerate and scale the adoption of digital pathology by laboratories.
As part of the deal, the partners will integrate Philips' image format with Proscia's digital pathology platform.
Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Proscia will integrate the Philips Pathology SDK to use the iSyntax image format with Proscia's open digital pathology platform and artificial intelligence module system Concentriq, an open digital pathology platform. The iSyntax has relatively small file sizes and multiple color channels to support deep color, Proscia said in a statement.
The Concentriq platform is used by commercial and academic laboratories, along with research organizations, to view, manage, and analyze whole-slide images. It is interoperable with multiple image formats as well as whole-slide image scanners, laboratory information systems, and image analysis applications, Proscia said. The Philadelphia-based company noted that the platform is also a launchpad for AI-enabled computational pathology applications.
