Augmented microscopy platform for pathology applications
Jennoptik Optical Systems have developed an innovative technology to bring artificial intelligence (AI) to conventional microscopy through overlay of digital content directly into a commercial-off-the-shelf microscope’s field of view, in collaboration with Google researchers. Google has demonstrated modeling for tumour detection in histopathology slides for both prostate cancer and lymph nodes from breast cancer using the platform and presented their results at the Annual meeting for the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) in April of 2018. Jenoptik designed and integrated the opto-mechanical technology at its Jupiter, Florida location, which was made possible by leveraging their Systems Engineering experience, optical R&D capabilities, and their portfolio of IP across a breadth of innovative applications and industries. The augmented microscope solution benefitted from their optical design expertise and a digital imaging platform Jenoptik developed over the past decade.
