VISIOPHARM HISTOINFORMATICS SOFTWARE OVERVIEW
Whole Slide Image Analysis offers fast and efficient means of obtaining quantitative information about tissue and cell samples. Predefined image analysis protocols measure morphological and spatial parameters such as size, shape, number and staining intensity to provide quick, accurate and consistent results. Recent increases in computational power, cost-effectiveness of whole slide scanners and the improvement in image analysis algorithms have made automated image analysis a powerful tool to a variety of research areas.
Whole Slide Stereology is an unbiased method of estimating important features, such as total cell count, volume, surface area, length, volume/area fraction and numeric density. Design-based stereology makes no assumptions and will provide you with 3-dimensional unbiased estimates that are statistically correct. Together with the newest whole slide technology this is now very fast and efficient.
Olympus America, Inc. has partnered up with Visiopharm®, a leading provider of advanced quantitative software to provide a robust and flexible whole slide imaging solution for our customers. The Visiopharm software is available for the Olympus VS120 slide scanners and it combined the strengths of Image Analysis and Stereology in one platform.
Contract research organizations, pharmaceutical and biotech companies, hospitals and universities are successfully using Visiopharm software for producing scientifically, trustworthy data with high information content and outstanding efficiency.
